    I worked at Fisher Investments part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Career advancement both vertically as well as horizontally, is unmateched, as well as promoted by management. continued education. well informed employees, as well as highly social work environment

    Cons

    Everything is broken down to numbers and compared daily. So if you dont have the self esteem to have others see when you struggle or are failing, do not take a sales position.

    I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Excellent 401k and healthcare benefits - Friendly coworkers - Nice break rooms with a number of amenities - There is an expectation that the work day ends after your shift and that you will leave work at the office - Lots of options to advance career (though every other role entails mandatory 10-hour workdays)

    Cons

    - Lack of schedule flexibility - Inability to work from home - System of backing each other up creates major burden for teammates - No paid sick days and days off for funerals, weddings, and other life event;. all of your time off comes out of your 20 days of PTO - Management micromanages employees and manages according to tens of metrics - Research and client service are understaffed/underpaid while sales is over-staffed/overpaid

    Advice to Management

    Unless management wants to see a heavy exodus of employees, they should introduce greater schedule flexibility and work from home policies. Micromanagement techniques need to end. There is too much competition that is becoming increasingly attractive compared to employment with Fisher.
