    No cons spring to mind.

    I have been working at Panmure Gordon & Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Now more dynamically managed following a long period of drift historically - a good thing, as the industry structure is changing rapidly and PG has historically not kept pace

    A good brand - still a great asset

    Qatari backing - now appears re-engaged and could be a real source of competitive advantage as the market consolidates

    Cons

    Two cadres of employees: one bunch which works very hard and professionally (thankfully, growing in numbers): but still a tail of guys who are too comfortable with an easy 'no change' life

    Doesn't make enough money to hold on to good people

    Advice to Management

    Increase the energy levels, and keep weeding!

    I have been working at Panmure Gordon & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Proud tradition. One of the most respected firms of its size

    Old boys' club is very prevalent. Distinct lack of diversity. Tense atmosphere following recent acquisition. I was treated very poorly

    Drag the firm into the 21st Century

    Pros

    You are given lots of autonomy to get the job done. There is a shared sense of purpose. Doors are open

    Cons

    It is an investment bank - so it a regulated industry

    Advice to Management

    Reinforce our common purpose

    I worked at Panmure Gordon & Co. full-time

    Pros

    Intimate firm, historic brand and proud tradition

    Cons

    Failure to move with the times, set in its ways and operationally under-resourced

    Advice to Management

    Change needed, more decisive action and end of the 'old boys club' - drag the firm into the 21st century!
