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

    Pros

    I have been with Fisher Investments for 14 years, and I am very happy. What I am most appreciative of though is that when the economy slowed in 2008, the company offered me the opportunity to work in another area of the country where people were needed. This has been a very financially beneficial job for me and my family. There are also great benefits.

    Cons

    Like any other sales position there are always ups and downs.However, the flexibility in my schedule and compensation more than offset these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide training to all employees as I feel this is critical as we grow.

    I worked at Fisher Investments

    Pros

    - Good Benefits - Good Sales Support from Headquarters - Very well thought out Investment Management Platform

    Cons

    - Company oversells the OSP position. It is basically glorified cold calling. Fisher promises you 100 warm leads a month but doesn't deliver and then expects you to make 100-200 cold calls a day. Very misleading and deceitful. - Very Weak Sales Management - Very Weak Training Program - Horrible Communication between Management - Very Confrontational Culture

    Advice to Management

    Every geography has it's unique challenges. Engage in further due diligence to try and understand the dynamics of each territory before setting expectations. Communicate Better with Employees Divert from the current culture of poor communication and confrontation.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    They've always done what they promise. Great benefits, positive work culture, more than competitive compensation. Peers that are always willing to help. I have referred friends to the firm

    Cons

    If you are lazy, don't expect to thrive at Fisher Investments. Not too much to report that I would say is negative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your clients and employees.

      I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Fisher Investments is a great company to work for. They give incredible employee benefits--100% healthcare coverage with no insurance premiums; 100% dental and orthodentia coverage with no premiums; group life and disability ins.; traditional and Roth 401k with 100% 401k match up to 50% of 401k max! That's right, you put in $18,000 into your 401k and Fisher matches up to $9,000. That's incredible! Fisher Investments...

      Cons

      No corporation is perfect to work for, but I have no complaints.

      Advice to Management

      Offer a deferred compensation program for employees who want to save more than what the 401k plan allows. Many times employees have spouses who work, therefore, they can save more than what the 401k allows and their combined incomes make it not possible to make a deductible IRA contribution.

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

      Pros

      Fisher Investments is a wonderful place to work. I have worked for both public and private investment companies in the past and Fisher far exceeds anything I have experienced. In my role, the company is a true meritocracy.

      Cons

      While no company is perfect, there is nothing about this company or my role specifically I would change.

      Advice to Management

      To Management: Thank you for your vision and your leadership.
