    I have been working at Davidson Companies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Love 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.

    Cons

    Low 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.

    I have been working at Davidson Companies

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Davidson Companies

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage 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.

    I worked at Davidson Companies (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Don'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 have been working at Davidson Companies

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    I 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.
