Pros

Ken Fisher has created an amazing firm. This is the first financial firm I’ve worked for where I can see the clients come first in everything. The structure is so unique here and the opportunities for those who work hard are endless. The concept here is pretty simple. Work hard while you’re here and put in 100% each day and the firm will pay you a ridiculous amount of money and give you a ton of time for your family. First of all they have the best benefits I’ve ever seen. They fully pay for your health, dental, and vision insurance, give you a maximum 401k match, and all compensation is based on the effort of how hard you work for the firm. No other firm can even touch what they compensate you here. I have worked for Fidelity, Edward Jones, TD Ameritrade and this firm beats them in every area. Not to mention our offering far outweighs what those firms can provide.

Cons

If you’re not a hard worker and not willing to give it all each day then you simply can’t just make it here. Not a con to me, but those just wanting to go through the motions in their jobs won’t do well.

    Pros

    The jobs and what is expected of you is clear. After working in an entry level role you can interview in different departments that interest you.

    Cons

    working 50 hours a week at a minimum, usually working 55. They had the opportunity to fix this when they launched a "help us improve" initiative that lasted 1.5 years and employees' BIGGEST want from it was fixing the hours

    Advice to Management

    care as much about employees as you do clients

    Protocol at the company can feel entrenched in its ways, and management at times felt unwilling to make big changes.
