Basically cold calling people every day, which can lead to frustration and burning out. Would like better opportunities for upward movement withing the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fisher Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good 401k match and plenty of great colleagues who are still friends. Good life balance ok as hours worked are very regimented and controlled. Great business model for gathering assets under management.

    Cons

    Septic culture of rampant nepotism and tenure based management with no outside experience, who are paid to follow directions and ask no questions. Prior/outside experience is considered worthless, as are graduate degrees and industry relevant designations. If you have these you are considered a threat to the Fisher groupthink. Very limited upside potential and very repetitive daily tasks. Tight, suspicious, untrusting control of all things by management.

    Advice to Management

    Not worth writing much here as they never showed any propensity to listen or any empathy for employees. This is one of the reasons for the poisonous work environment.

    Competitive culture - good probability of making some great money and upward mobility. Great place to build a network that can/will be helpful down the road.
