    Very good culture and access to deals and sr bankers.

    Associate (Current Employee) Minneapolis, KS

    ProsGreat company. Will weather the storm better than other mid market banks. As an analyst, you generally work directly with the senior bankers on the team. In general the teamwork is better than exists with my friends at bulge bracket banks. Some very strong sector bankers. This is much more stable environment than i'm hearing from my friends at other banks in town.

    ConsNot on the high end of comp compared with bulge firms. Sometimes difficult to know where you stand, but my banker has been helpful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeem to make decisions on staffing which is short sighted. Everyone sees the need to bring in more senior talent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work. Plan on moving to Minnapolis.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat fellow employees and family oriented company structure. In a high pressure industry, Piper Jaffray is a bit less stressful than other banks.

    ConsMinneapolis centric. You are 'out of the loop' if you are not in Minnie. Pay scale seemed less than industry particularly in NYC and San Francisco.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMeet with employees outside of Minnie. Clearly communicate expectations.
