    I worked at Wm Smith & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Out of the gate seems like a good place to work. Small office environment. Feeling that you can make a difference and help grow the business.

    Cons

    Management does not want to make the necessary investment in hiring expereienced people to grow the business and has not changed with the times. Extremely high employee turnover. Staff is constantly micro managed. Company has no clear direction and lacks a true identity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and listen to what your clients need. A road paved with greed will eventually come to an end.

    I worked at Wm Smith & Co.

    Pros

    Finance options in Denver are limited so it's a great placeholder while looking for a different job. Great office building and location. Large network of former employees in Denver to commiserate with.

    Cons

    Compensation is well below market unless family member. Small office so any family issues spill over into work place and make it a very tense environment. Minimal trust and communication with employees not directly linked to the family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The level of compensation offered, along with the tough work environment makes it hard to attract talent. Hiring a few well known sales people, analysts and bankers (and paying mkt rates/bonuses), could expand business rapidly. Any historical partnerships have ended with a fight over money which lacks the big picture effort (yes you might have to invest/lose money initially) required for growing a business.
