    Pros

    The office location is in a beautiful part of the city. 401k was a plus.

    Most of us didn't appreciate management's approach a "TED Talks" teaching style and telling all of us that we are wrong all of our lives

    Advice to Management

    Office meetings should be about company issues. It shouldn't be a classroom.

    I worked at Canaccord Genuity Group full-time

    Pros

    salary was not too bad

    Cons

    beware of weaponized HR. Draconian IT policies. Company is far too involved in employees personal affairs. Innovate ideas are not listened to or respected, its a bunch of yes men just saying yes to the "managing director" with the most money no matter how ludicrous and laughable the idea. They dream of getting big enough to buy out the competition rather than, actually competing. Rude and hostile managers who scream absurd...
