No opinion of CEO

I worked at Jefferies & Company part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Excellent IT to work with, good HR profile, great people to work with. Robust processes in which to get things done with clear workflows to track items.

Cons

Rigid pay policies and lack of transparency around them. Advancement within teams and to new teams is not always transparent - many senior positions appointed through networking and not through advertisement and interviews.

Advice to Management

Transparency required for new positions and promotions to allow all to apply.

    I worked at Jefferies & Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was the most competitive I ever had, gave a great sense of global perspective.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance, disrespectful co-workers who made the most gross generalizations and racially insensitive remarks ever. Boss was endorsed and promoted for being a small minded jerk who even dipped chewing tobacco right in the middle of the office. Constantly made fun of people with disabilities and try to do nothing but cover up their awful behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone who clearly demonstrates such poor behavior.

    Pros

    Pays well for someone right out of undergrad

    Cons

    Sell themselves as a flat organization and different than other investment banks in terms of respecting your work/life balance. They are no such thing. Just as bad (and if you include the below the street pay and exit opportunities they are worse) as any investment banking gig out there
