    I worked at Fisher Investments for less than a year

    Pros

    Good at PR and marketing to make themselves look and sound good. It seems like they are trying to reach their investors or potential investors. They put up a good front of trying to "serve" employees as well.

    Cons

    It's all a front. This is a self-serving organization that refers to itself rightly so as "the cult on the hill." This is the name others gave Ken Fisher's first office in Woodside, but it is still a fitting title for an organization that overlooks every big elephant and continues to operate as if it were 1963. The leadership is incompetent. The middle management is brutal, leading like dictators, over sheepish victims...

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with yourselves; change before it's too late. You are a dinosaur and you are brutal to your fellow humans. Karma!
