    I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than a year

    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....

    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 company benefits are exceptional, healthcare, and 401K match.

    Cons

    The company benefits are Fisher’s attempts at throwing the curtain over your eyes. You will wear a suit everyday to cold call individuals who do not want to answer. The whole role is to combat individuals on how they mistakenly invested their life savings. You will sell against mutual funds for “customized portfolios” when in reality it’s just one mutual fund with the ability to say you don’t want a stock or two for personal...

    Pros

    Benefits and 401k match is cool

    Cons

    10 hr days, getting time off approved is hard, flex scheduling was approved but didn’t offer early time in for Texas office, just got parental leave and it’s half of what other companies offer, measuring performance off metrics is easily skewed by people that chose to work 12 hour days and take no lunch. If you aren’t top of metrics you don’t get promoted as quick

    I have been working at Fisher Investments

    Pros

    There are so many reasons to begin working at Fisher - benefits, 401k match, an opportunity to be a part of a rising RIA, but there are a lot more reasons to stay. Fisher's culture thrives on young, driven employees and allows meritocracy to be the driving force of high production and growth. Regardless of business unit - introspective, competitive, team-oriented mentality is key!

    Cons

    The lack of schedule flexibility

    I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Work life balance. 40 hour work week every week without exception. They literally force you off the computer if you are trying to stay late. Great compensation. Most leads are qualified. 20 days of PTO. Health insurance. Dental/Vision 50% 401k match up to a maxed out 401k You don’t even have to close.

    Cons

    High activity level. Dealing with lots of rejection. Ultimately if you are good it’s an incredible opportunity. If you aren’t a natural born sales person you will struggle with handling all the objections. Frat culture prevails here.

    Advice to Management

    If someone funds 100 clients for 100 million give them senior AE. The base hasn’t been adjusted in almost two decades.

    I worked at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    401k match Benefits (only Kaiser and UHC) Pay (but 50 hour work weeks) WA based company (The benefits and pay makes it hard to leave)

    Cons

    Cultish- you better drink the koolaid or you’re out! Male management - hardly any women in upper management or making investment decisions Micro managers and inexperienced managers Office politics Mandatory 50 hour work weeks for most roles Fear based mentality High turnover / always new faces/ always hiring

    Advice to Management

    Don’t teach and manage through fear. Unconventional thinking should be rewarded, not reprimanded. Fisher was built off junk mailers... the people who didn’t think it would work were wrong. Maybe that unconventional thinking does work! The nay-sayers should get the boot or treated unfairly because they are saying no or disagreeing with something or not drinking the “koolaid”! Hear these people out! There are so many...

      Pros

      Good Health Benefits/401k match. That's about it. Philosophy toward helping investors is sound.

      Cons

      The company culture is terrible. I work in client services and the moral is poor. This stems from the fact that the company is addicted to finding fault. When problems occur, rather than banding together, and fixing the problem and moving forward, the managers first try to figure out who to blame. Opportunities for advancement are very limited beyond Jr. level management so all managers are paranoid and worry more...

      Advice to Management
