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

    Pros

    There are great benefits, and it opens the industry up to those from nonfinance backgrounds

    Cons

    The hours are very long, and it is difficult to maintain a work-life balance. The culture is very accusative, always a hunt for someone to blame.

    I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    great benefits, young dynamic work force, long term vision, stable sensible senior management. There is vast opportunity at Fisher for people who show the right attitude and ability. I have worked here for 7 years and have had a number of roles in that time, whilst the company has grown and expanded into continental Europe. The service that is provided to clients is second to none and everyone genuinely believes in what the company is trying to do. There are more management layers operating in London now rather than the US which helps with employee engagement and communication.

    Cons

    In previous years there was a sense that the company grew too fast too quickly, however the is a stability around the firm now that wasn't evident in the past. office space could be improved.
