    I worked at Canaccord full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will be surrounded by sharp, motivated people. Most employees own stock which leads to proactive, results oriented behavior.

    Cons

    After being in growth mode the curren market slowdown for resource companies has led to pullback in hiring, some turnover and layoffs in fixed income and cash equities groups.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Canaccord (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Met the Controller, she was very nice and polite. But when she walked into the conference room very casual with a glass of water in her hand. it look to me like she wasn't prepared to interview anyone for a job position. I was asked the normal questions . Tell me about yourself, what is your current role at your present job, why are you looking to leave you current job..... I was asked to go back for a second interview.Met the HR person - very lovely person, she gave me a full description of the job and explain what will be my roll if I was chosen for the job opening. I was there over an hour waiting to meet with the CFO. Finally met with the CFO - very nice person, my impression of him was a very knowledgeable and straightforward. He gave me full details of the company and how it operates. I had a very good feeling about this. sadly it didn't work out for me.
