    I worked at Hilliard Lyons as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, Caring, and they are knowledgable in the industry they are in (160 years worth)

    Cons

    Weak Center leadership, Operation structure both Corporate and Branches is similar to 19th Century actions. No focus or direction to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT activities SHOULD BE with IT.
    I would guess holding OLD money helps keep HL afloat. But if something had large funds, I would definitely stay away from this firm because they think from their hip instead of their brains. The state of Kentucky relies on them for investments which if i was an official from Kentucky, I would go elsewhere.

    Nice people, pathetic pay and benefits

    I have been working at Hilliard Lyons

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Bottom line: the pay at Hilliard is far below industry standards. The company has very little competition in Louisville so they are able to pay their employees crappy salaries with no fear of them leaving. It is not unusual for many of their employees to leave the office at 5 and then head to a second job that pays minimum wage. That is shameful. A $40 billion company should treat its employees better. Its pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees at least the industry norm, bare minimum. Do something about the health plan. A younger employee would be crazy to stick around and have children while working there due to the outrageously high premiums.

    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.
