Reviews - What employees say

Support from management

Middle management is a parking spot for long term sales people. Most managers are not good managers or likely to have ever managed others outside of the company. The managers who managed before they came to Fisher are very good.

Career Development

Career Development is not good unless you are straight out of college. If you are an experienced employee you can move up but there is a turn waiting mentality that purports itself to be a meritocracy.

Company Image

Company Image is exceptional among clients and bad among many former clients. No different than anywhere else in the finance industry.

Job Security

No more or less than any other job. Company is financially stable but always concern about long term leadership changes.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better Management training. Clear predetermined employee career tracks. Diversity and Inclusion focus from C suite that will incorporate that component into the company culture.

What I like about the company

Excellent approach to clients.

What I dislike about the company

The Culture and lack of diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • See my prior response. Flexible scheduling and a more liberal vacation accrual policy would be most appreciated.

What I like about the company

The firm is highly client focused and seeks to exceed client expectations at all times. The firm is always developing new processes and technology while striving to be a teaching organization. Personal accountability is expected.

What I dislike about the company

The firm is well run. However, the hours are long and remote access is granted to certain employees. You are expected to work at least 10 hours per day and can be very tiring. Vacation accrual is capped and the pace of work can get hectic. It is very easy to get stressed and can be hard to manage in certain periods. It would be great if employees could accrue vacation at faster rate and be uncapped. Home access would be great to have to be able to perform project work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Flexible hours, honesty and transparency from senior management, better training for middle management, equal employment opportunities across office locations, increased interaction and recognition of international employees and offices.

What I like about the company

I have made amazing friends at the company, the people make the place a good place to be.

What I dislike about the company

Company is still managed by older white men who are traditional. The company does not offer maternity leave, tuition reimbursement, or flexible working hours/ working from home. The company talks about its competitive benefits but is not keeping up with the times.
