Pros

People, senior leadership. Loyalty to staff. A smaller company that has integrity

Cons

Undue focus on the top line contribution of a few individuals resulting in less recognition for those who play a supporting, but vital role.

Advice to Management

Do not invest in infrastructure or build your own support services unless there is a genuinely compelling reason to do so. Do not let it get in the way of your core business. Do not be led into such decisions or rely on the advice of those who would benefit from you doing so. Place value on the experience your own expert staff has in their area of competency, when this experience comes from diversity and not tenure. Consider measuring and rewarding bottom line contribution as well. Measure the right things when doing this, using outside resources if necessary to help identify them. Continue to treat all your staff as well as you have.

    Pros

    DBRS is an excellent place to gain an overview of the Canadian market. With it's insight and contacts nto every major Canadian player, DBRS provides any employee with a strong foundation to set off their career.

    Cons

    Compensation compared to the rest of the industry is below average, considering the number of hours worked. Flexibility in work hours are limited, and expectations are that analysts need to be there 9-6 most days ((sually more).
    Due to the company being a family owned business, nepotism and favourites run rampant. There are lots of non producers and bottle necks that are kept, even after a layoff session.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the producers and remove bottle necks
