    I worked at Collins Stewart (US) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people, good working environment and great salary. Good management when I started but they moved on before company was sold to Canaccord.

    Cons

    For a medium sized financial services company it was tough to get a budget process together, I guess that's what happens when you are a combination of acquisitions (CE Unterberg) and demergers (Tullet Prebon) with an HQ overseas

    Advice to Management

    Most Collins Stewart management have moved on or been let go since the acquisition

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Collins Stewart (US) full-time

    Pros

    Excellent equity and macro strategy research. Numerous trading desks across all products including cash equities, equity derivatives, international equities and fixed income.

    Cons

    Pay is below standard from rest of street. Account coverage strategy could be better, a lot of dormant accounts that could be made profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Look to grow with youth

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Collins Stewart (US) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some good people, nice office good analysts

    Cons

    Very short termist in approach to staff. Need results immediately or you are out... Probably to do with their own internal issues pre take over

    Advice to Management

    Take a longer term approach to building staff, allow a business to develop especially in the hard economic times we are currently in. Sure it's tough out there but give staff at least 6months to prove themselfs

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Collins Stewart (US)

    Pros

    Management was willing to share how the business was doing with all employees on a daily basis. Very unusual and greatly appreciated.

    Cons

    High turnover in employees; seemed to turn direction on a dime, hiring and firing teams whole teams at times. In first 6 months had 3 managers. Not much feedback on personal work.
