    I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Probably the best managed firm in the investment industry. Management maintains extremely high standards. Compensation is fair. Employees are evaluated based on performance. Many opportunities for moving into positions of more authority and responsibility if that's what you want. Generous benefits.

    Cons

    No place for slackers. You won't find ping pong or video games, no free lunches, people have to show up on time and work hard.

    I worked at Fisher Investments full-time

    Pros

    Healthcare and 401K benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Fisher intentional recruits from college campuses with the intent of working it's young employees 50+ plus hours a week separated from their friends and family. It is a grind and every employee feels it but are too scared for their job to say anything. Everything is metrically based and the majority of employees that stay or get promoted hand off work, work the system, and cheat the numbers. Everything is done in assembly...

    Stop treating everyone like a number and you will have more employees that will provide quality work.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    It is easy to get a job at FI. They have an extremely high turnover rate, so they're always looking for more inexperienced employees. They try and recruit recent college graduates that might not know what they want to do with the rest of their life. They’re able to offer full-time jobs before graduation and broke college students should and will jump at that opportunity. FI also has an extremely structured culture. If...

    Cons

    I started at FI a week after graduation and loved it. Quickly, I realized that the 10-hour days (that often turned into 12 or 13) didn’t allow for any sort of life outside of work. I wanted nothing more than to succeed so I often skipped meals and bathroom breaks just so I could get more work done. I was given raises and bonuses, but now after leaving FI and working elsewhere for over a year I realized that those minuscule...

    Take a moment and listen to what your employees need and want. Invest in people and individual growth if you want a strong and dedicated team.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Fisher Investments

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Room to move throughout the company if you work hard.

    Cons

    Very metric driven. Much of what an individual does goes unrecognized by weekly metrics. Favoritism by some members of management for those who attended "good" schools.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so stuck in your ways.
