    I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for less 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.

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

    Pros

    I don't know where to start. I am incredibly lucky to be working for this company. I have a BLAST every day - everyone I work around is charismatic, driven, fun, and means well. The people who work here truly enjoy aiming to improve the financial services industry by being transparent, accountable, direct, and well-intention. There's a pretty clear reason FI is the most successful RIA in the country. Everyone who works...

    Cons

    I literally cannot think of one. I guess make sure you get your sleep... but if you don't want to work hard, don't even apply.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    I have been working at Fisher Investments part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -always have access from management for feedback and coaching -metric-based approach helps personal professional development (measuring stick) -focused on making sure that Fisher is a great place to work for you specifically and will work around your needs and desires as much as possible

    Cons

    -sometimes management decisions are inconsistently transparent -some resources that are available aren't very well publicized and you have to be somewhat lucky in uncovering them (right place, right time)

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Fisher Investments for less than a year

    Pros

    The hiring process may have been long, but it was very organized and after being with the company for a bit, it is apparent that it's long for a reason. The culture is super important and it's protected in part by taking time with each candidate to ensure it's a mutual fit. The onboarding and initial training was organized and professional. The benefits are great. The leadership is great. Opportunities are abundant....

    Cons

    The big con for me is that is not on public transit.

    Advice to Management

    None, yet.
