I worked at Laidlaw & Company UK (More than a year)
collegiate atmosphere, sponsor for series 7 and 63, lots of exposure to markets, team setting
could be put on dead team, little room for growth, bad compensation, takes year to manage own book if you hang that long
Advice to Management
compensate entry level associates appropriately, have a firm wide plan to moving up associates, be more professional
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Laidlaw & Company UK (New York, NY) in July 2015.
Simple equities brokerage firm, looking for money hungry candidates to do cold calling and develop a book. Started with a phone interview from someone in a position similar to you if you were to be with the firm for 6 months or so, then a follow up in person, then if all goes well, goes to the director. Looks for money hungry people.
Reasons for Declining
Had another offer.
