    Pros

    There are many professionals here that care about the business. Well mannered people. Well-paying job for the responsibilities given. Great work atmosphere when situations are good.

    Cons

    These professionals care so much about the business at times that they lose patience and manners. Poor communication at times. Sporadic verbal hostility (luckily it dissipates quickly).

    Advice to Management

    Temporary positions should be informed a bit more about responsibilities, time with company and technicalities from the beginning.

    Pros

    support staff is very helpful

    Cons

    no loyalty, they lie, they will bully you and take your money, contracts are very one sided, too much administration, they will nickel and dime you over everything, no communication

    Treat your employees right and they will take care of you

    I worked at Compagnie Financière Tradition (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very hands off mentality. You either make it for yourself, or you do not. No one will tell you what to do, but in the same token, no one will help you to succeed. You are on your own. if you like it, it is a pro.

    Cons

    Very competitive work place with no loyalty, no guidance. It a wolf world and everyone will try to stab you in the back the moment they see an opportunity. Very sexist and racist work environment.... No work life balance as you are expected to go out often with customers.

    I worked at Compagnie Financière Tradition full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Compensation, Friendly Work Environment, Great Benefits, Minimal Micro Management. Respectable People. Long History as a Bond House and still doing very strong Brokers Broker business there.

    Cons

    Not always the most organized as far as corporate structure goes. In many cases it may leave things open to many interpretation but this can also be listen under "Pro's".

    Pros

    Flexibilité des tâches et des horaires.
    Petites équipes.
    Proche de la direction.
    Bien situé entre deux stations du métro m2.

    Cons

    Personnellement je ne vois pas d'inconvénient à mettre en avant.
    Peux être que la direction devrait chercher à créer plus de liens en les équipes.

    Advice to Management

    Écouter plus la basse.
    Chercher à créer une ambiance positive avec plus d'échange.
