    Pros

    Experience depends on which advisor hires you as you will not interact with other advisory teams that much unless you make an effort to arrange social events. New downtown Vancouver office is nice.

    Cons

    Salary is low, commission depends on advisor's revenue/generosity. Working market hours on the west coast means early starts.

    Advice to Management

    Organize more social events as there is very little corporate culture and employees don't interact across advisory teams unless they arrange it themselves.
