Pros

Great company for entrepreneurial types. Little direct management, more like 'run your own business' model.

Cons

Little interaction with coworkers. Often feel you could do the same work at home.

Advice to Management

More emphasis on the team aspect - you're still working for a company, regardless if you're running your own business.

    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.


  2. "Research"

    I worked at Canaccord as an intern

    Pros

    Smart people to be around everyday and learn as much as possible. Decent pay for interns. Hard working employees that will try to teach you everything if you are proactive. Overall I learned a lot and it was a good experience.

    Cons

    Lack of company culture. People seem to work for the weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a formal internship rotational program.
