Outstanding company, great promise for the future

Investment Banking Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Jefferies & Company full-time for more than a year

ProsJefferies' investment banking franchise is fast-growing and well-positioned for the future. If you want to make a career in investment banking, it's one of the best places to go.

ConsWork/life balance is nonexistent. If you want to be an investment banker, be prepared to regularly work 100+ hour weeks and not take vacations for a year at a time.

Advice to Senior ManagementRich Handler is a best-in-class CEO. Rich and Brian's leadership is inspirational.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
