    I worked at Hilliard Lyons full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Although Hilliard Lyons is an organization with more than 1,000 employees, it feels like a much smaller company. Senior management is very approachable and shows real concern for employees.

    Cons

    Most benefits are adequate, but the health insurance is a high-deductible plan and does not cover prescriptions. the 401(k) plan is offered through Fidelity.

    I have been working at Hilliard Lyons full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The branches, advisors and staff are knowledgeable, efficient and kind.

    Cons

    The operation of the home office are dated, slow and inefficient. The management runs like they are huge corporation while the branches maintain the smaller regional feel that they are. That disconnect makes for a lot of animosity between the branches and back office and makes things hard in the branches

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensation is way below industry standard allow for a work hard be rewarded concept for all positions.

    Pros

    Great managers who balance keeping you working with letting you work the hours and use the methods you prefer. Overall friendly, productive, intelligent, and cooperative staff.

    Not many to speak of, other than the company flow of documents/communication has a slightly outdated system, although I know it was in the works of being updated.
