    Pros

    Maxim Group has all the advantages of a big firm (stability, credibility, resources, etc.) but still has the flexibility of a small firm. You can directly speak to the President of Maxim (Chris Fiore) who always makes himself available to his team in Capital Markets. The CEO, COO, CFO, and General Counsel are also down-to-earth and readily available for discussions with employees at any level in any department. I have been working for over 20 years and this is the first job that I truly love! If you have the opportunity to work here, take it. You will find yourself a "home" for the long-term. For a financial firm, a surprising number of people have been here for 5, 10 or more years.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the "open door policy" alive as you continue to grow. The accessibility of senior management and the family-like atmosphere are key differentiators for Maxim.

    Pros

    Great group of professionals! Working with Chris Fiore and his staff made it a pleasure to go to work each day. It is so hard to find people of integrity in this business, I was lucky to find this, not only with Chris Fiore, but with many of the managers.

    Cons

    My experience was positive. I would still be working at Maxim had my circumstances not changed.

    Pros

    There wasn't any pros for me to list to be honest.
