          I have been working at Hilliard Lyons full-time for more than 3 years

          Pros

          Almost everyone is amicable and super hard working, an awesome culture that you won’t get at most brokerages.

          Cons

          This firm is a complete mess. In the wake of the transition to clearing through Wells Fargo they offed almost the entire ops team. The new systems are highly inefficient, and management consistently thinks all is well. Compensation for most is WAY under market standards, so much that’s it laughable. The firm will nickle and dime you on everything, and will do anything to save a buck. Lastly, the firm has no direction...

          Advice to Management

          Find a direction/strategy and stick with it, and find more qualified people to lead the firm.

              I worked at Hilliard Lyons full-time

              Pros

              The company name still stands for something but that is dying Employees work hard

              Cons

              Too many people get too much input out of their areas of expertise, decision-making is slow, too stuff-shirt and good ol' boy, some level of hedging and dishonesty in leadership got discouraging

              Advice to Management

              Decide who you want to be, commit to a vision that's attainable not someone's pipe dream. Own your mistakes and don't take them out on the line workers.
