    Great experience, people, and opportunities . . . else where

    Equity Research Associate (Current Employee)
    Lake Oswego, OR

    ProsLove the work, great relationship with boss, and perfect experience for my career path. Could see myself staying my whole life, but it would mean significantly lower pay than industry norm.

    ConsLow pay, long hours, and remote location. High turn over of associates because of under appreciation, not worth it if you are not serious about equity research.

    Davidson is okay...nothing more or less

    Assistant Vice President (Current Employee)
    Great Falls, MT

    ProsPretty good work environment. Nice people. At times, decent management.

    ConsWAY TOO MUCH NEPOTISM. Too many people promoted one step above their ability to succeed based on family genes instead of ability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire based on ability, not last names. Don't brag about Profit Sharing - not much better than others.

    Go through the internship program

    Broker Assistant (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsThe culture is very personal and it feels like a family business. Lots of volunteer and donation options year round.

    ConsI'm not sure how the actual internship program is but, working as a broker assistant is more like being a mail boy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage brokers to work as a team instead of being so self-centered. They need to brainstorm on ways to capture more market share of clients.

    Decent place to work. Could use an update to management, training and benefits.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPrivate company. Good opportunities to advance in different areas of the company.

    ConsDon't like to spend money on technology or keeping quality employees. Support for the branch offices tends to be so-so at best. Benefits are expensive and not very comprehensive compared to most average benefit packages out there. They don't train anyone. Sink or swim from day one.

    I am in control of my destiny.

    Financial Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsI have unlimited earning potential. I could fail or I could excell. It is all up to me. I feel the compensation package is very competitive in the industry. It is like being self employed but having the safety blanket of a company behind you.

    ConsI do a lot of advertising for Davidson which I pay 100% of. My name will kindo of be on it but most of the recognition is with Davidson.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
