I have been working at Jefferies & Company

Pros

Working here is more relaxed than the big institutuions - the hours are also less. The people here give a good environment to work in

Cons

The bonuses paid to back office staff last year were very poor. Although this may be industry wide with the current economical situation

    Middle Management is a major gating factor to taking this company to the next level

    Pros

    Executive management is top notch, too bad middle management does not follow suit

    Cons

    There are middle managers at this company who are dinosaurs that are NOT willing to grasp new technologies; as these technologies threaten their existance, i.e. sand box.
    Dealt with some children type mentalities in the technology department, i.e. I was here first attitude and I will force you to reinvent the wheel and waste company resources, i.e. sand box
    Union-like mentality, 'seniority' supersedes everything else, its not about your skill-set, its about how long you have been with the company.
    Co-workers purposely hide information and provide erroneous information for political/personal gain
    There are very few team players in technology, its a lone ranger mentality, I don't think many played sports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of middle management and let zealous workers shine.
