Featured Review

Former Employee - Analyst

I worked at Pacific Crest Securities full-time

Pros

Learned a lot from the staff here, small team but that means that you are given more responsibility

Cons

Continue to invest in junior team since they are strong support

Current Employee - Senior Equity Research Associate

I have been working at D.A. Davidson & Co. full-time for more than a year

Pros

New research management came in a few years ago and refocused/reset quite a bit. Lots of new higher performing employees, more investment into associates (training programs, events), clearer paths... for career advancement. Management always has an open door and actively addresses feedback. You'll get responsibility as soon as you show yourself as capable and ask for it. People want to support you, and that West Coast-style office culture is pretty killer.

Cons

Benefits aren't great, and hours in Portland are tough.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your employees, it helps! Make sure the satellite offices (especially the juniors there) feel like a part of the whole.
