    I worked at Dahlman Rose and Compnay full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The quality of people on both the sales/trading and research sides were top-notch. Some of the top-rated analysts in their respective sectors as well as talented younger analysts that are on the rise. The sales traders were among the best in the business with great relationships all over the Street. A great atmosphere to work when things were going good, not so much when things started to go south.

    Cons

    Tough to be a boutique broker-dealer in today's market; not enough breadth and scale to make it a viable business. Former leadership put the company into a hole it couldn't get out of with lavish expenses and ridiculously nice offices, overpaid support staff that could have been replaced at half price with no loss in quality, boneheaded business decisions. There was no formal training program or really any program of any sort. HR was a mess, it was like the wild west, but it didn't matter since so much money was being made in the run-up to the financial crisis. When that happened every bad part of the company was exposed and couldn't be fixed in time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is sitting at home still getting severance payments so maybe "go ahead and set up that NetJets account, you deserve it"

    Pros

    The employees are fantastic, very engaged and motivated. As someone starting out new in the industry I was given a lot of responsibility at an early stage within the company.

    Cons

    Management transition has resulted in a lot of uncertainty, there is also a lot of secrecy around top management, but that is to be expected.
    There could be a more formalized training program for new employees.

    Pros

    Dahlman Rose is a family style office that has done well since it was founded in 2004. The people I worked with at Dahlman are great people and I would recommend the firm to anyone.

    Cons

    new management - CEO was replaced 7/11 for an agent of a PE firm that had a stake DR. New CEO's goal is to max profits rather than build a franchise. 30-40% of the firm's staff was cut in 9/11.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    grow the franchise and brand rather than the next quarters profit.
