    I worked at Canaccord Adams full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Salary and great bonuses, friendly Co-workers and opportunity

    Cons

    Leadership lacks vision, fewer opportunities for women and very little flexibility. Poor communication between back and front office - leads to poor implementation of strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your staff has to say - they have a good understanding of how the organisation works. The organisation is too top down command and control. Start hiring women with vision.
