    Pros

    Fisher genuinely offers their employees the best of the best including a competitive salary with a hard to match bonus potential, fully paid medical benefits, and generous PTO in a professional environment. Fisher’s goal is pure and simple, support employees as people first. Perhaps most attractive is the promise to allow employees to leave work at work, after the schedule day ends, work life balance is guaranteed. ...

    Find ways to allow employees to work from home or at least maintain a normal 8-hour work day without decreasing pay. Be more innovative with modernizing the business structure.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. You will make friends with coworkers.

    Cons

    Management within Investment Counselor force is lackluster. Management will say you are valued one way and then pay you less than expected. This will happen during your tenure. Quarterly bonuses are preset unless you bring in at least 5x the firm average. Good luck getting 80% of your eligibility over the course of 1 year. If you want to work at FI and get paid well, work in sales. Not IC.
