    I worked at Galliard Capital Management full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Sticky client base and product - Reasonably good investment process and philosophy - Rank and file traders/analysts generally a cut above - Historically comp was good as were soft perks (catered lunches, complimentary beverages, nice office space, etc.)

    Cons

    - The firm has seen a multi-year process of deep cuts to try and boost the bottom line. It's a shell of its former self. - Tone at the top has been toxic for many years now and continues to worsen, as turnover has seen the fragilest egos and their deep-seeded insecurities brought to the fore. A once respectable team increasingly looks like a caricature of a sell-side desk from the mid-oughts: juniorized, obsequious, and given to childish impulses at the expense of professionalism, competency and, sadly, client interests. Some top rate talent remains among the longer-tenured, but they've grown weary from years of cruel and laughably imperious third-world antics, and they generally all have one foot out the door.

    I worked at Galliard Capital Management full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great community with co-workers, friendly atmosphere between team members, good bonuses, lots of free food.

    Cons

    Toxic management of departments No leadership Lots of Micromanagement Little chance to grow in your career The way they promote people is confusing Work expectations are not consistent between departments or employees You start working there and they treat you poorly but you can never leave because the work you do is so specific to them and the bonuses are good. You begin to feel like it's the only place you can ever work.

    I worked at Galliard Capital Management full-time

    Pros

    It used to be a good place to work

    Cons

    Working at Galliard is like being in an abusive relationship. They think they can treat you terribly and in the dark because they pay bigger bonuses than the bank. But they are not competing with the bank for employees so losing the good ones. Zero leadership

    I worked at Galliard Capital Management full-time

    Pros

    Pays well. Product is interesting. They treat their employees well, and expect good work out of you. Although it it a subsidiary of Wells Fargo, the culture is much different. They have the tendency to poach the best, most ambitious and brightest from Wells. So, there are no legacy retail banking branch employees waiting to retire.

    Cons

    Due to their niche product, your experience may not translate well in other areas of financial services. Depending on which department you are in, I believe some of them can be competitive, or higher stress. I didn't have this problem, but have heard complaints.
