Pros

The corporate culture is excellent, the atmosphere is focused and driven to succeed. For the most part they reward hard work and acheivement. Very senior management has a keen interest in seeing that employees are looked after.

Cons

The talent pool of middle management is very shallow, interested in their own little agendas with little or no concern for the rookie staff. As for training new I.A.'s....the program is severely lacking, which is very disappointing to say the least as these are frontline representatives.

Advice to Management

Spend more time and effort in training new I.A.'s.

    Pros

    You will be surrounded by sharp, motivated people. Most employees own stock which leads to proactive, results oriented behavior.

    Cons

    After being in growth mode the curren market slowdown for resource companies has led to pullback in hiring, some turnover and layoffs in fixed income and cash equities groups.

    Advice to Management

    none
