bad experience, not only did they lie about the amount of interns that would be converted, but they took extra time

Summer Analyst - Fixed Income Sales & Trading (Former Employee) New York, NY

Prosnot many ----pay is at least in line with other firms

Consjust for everyone's reference in the future ---probably should try to stay away from jefferies for summer internships---at least for trading
in fixed income they told us they would be hiring 70 to 80% of the analysts for the program----then even on the last day of the internship they told us they would hire 6 or 7 of the 10 interns----

to make matters worse, not only did they take an extra 3 weeks then they were supposed to to give offer decisions----but they only hired 2 people----

furthermore, the program is extremely unstructured---theres no formal training---and the whole mentality among people there has nothing to do with giving an intern a positions---there's no mentorship program---the EM desk literally told us from the start that they only hire people with experience---the advice is to stay away coming from someone that had offers at multiple BB programs and ended up obv. not getting an offer....

ranting because i just saw a video on their new careers site with their head of FI saying how they are now focusing on building internally via hiring junior people----when that is a bunch of crap (at least for fixed income)

extremely unprofessional HR treatment

Advice to Senior Managementget the intern program more organized---don't mislead kids into taking a position with the firm when there's an extremely small chance of getting hired----build a training program--support and have HR honor a date of commitment

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
