    I have been working at Stifel Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The management in my group is great, everyone gets along and it is very laid back. The company is very gracious with its time off policy.

    Cons

    Compensation is well below industry standards, seems to be lacking in terms of bleeding edge.

    Pros

    Easy to get a job. Only an associates degree is necessary for hire. Was fun to work with the various branches.

    Cons

    In operations, you start at 30k salary. Critical atmosphere--headphones were banned while data entering. Office is loud and voices carry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operations staff micromanages and critical about the darndest things. Communcation is poor.
