I worked at Canaccord Genuity Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Compensation, bonus, good location. When the family that founded the company still ran it, it was a fantastic place to work, great teams, respect, hard working.

Cons

Since a RTO was accomplished by former rival GMP and the Reynolds cabal it has been a slow and painful downward slide. Money is all that matters. People are completely expendable. Terrible corporate culture. Lack of honesty, decency, values.

Advice to Management

Learn some values. Start at the top.

    Avoid paying up for bulge bracket talent that rarely produce in middle market firms.

    I worked at Canaccord Genuity Group full-time

    Pros

    Only Pro I could think of is being able to leave after the market ends.

    Cons

    Almost everything. No training at all. Basically they say hello welcome to canaccord, here's your seat. Thats it... No help from co-workers. IA think they are the next warren buffett, but actually they just want more commission.

    Advice to Management

    Hire IA's and employees for their skills and experience, not because they have connections to current / former employees.
