Pros

Great company for entrepreneurial types. Little direct management, more like 'run your own business' model.

Cons

Little interaction with coworkers. Often feel you could do the same work at home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More emphasis on the team aspect - you're still working for a company, regardless if you're running your own business.

    Pros

    The corporate culture is excellent, the atmosphere is focused and driven to succeed. For the most part they reward hard work and acheivement. Very senior management has a keen interest in seeing that employees are looked after.

    Cons

    The talent pool of middle management is very shallow, interested in their own little agendas with little or no concern for the rookie staff. As for training new I.A.'s....the program is severely lacking, which is very disappointing to say the least as these are frontline representatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time and effort in training new I.A.'s.

    Pros

    Strong mid and small cap coverage. Very good sales and trading operation that competes with any larger shop. Access to strong research and established client pipeline.

    Cons

    Canaccord Genuity has some very wonderful people who are respectful and smart. However, there is an entrenched attitude of easternly elitism in some of the larger, older offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication and written protocal trump all else. Employees need access to honest job reviews and bonus related awards. Keep up the good work.
