I worked at Jefferies & Company

Pros

The culture breeds success through competition, provided the markets are cooperating of course. There is no stifling bureaucracy or 25 layers of middle management. The focus is on the bottom line, so you can focus on doing the best possible job without the typical corporate BS. If you do not want to be part of large, impersonal organization with bumbling management, its a great place to work.

Cons

You will not enjoy the "perks" of a typical corporate job, no gyms, very little training. If you are someone who needs a lifeline or a clear path to follow, instead of making your own path, then you may end up aimless.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set up systems allow your employees to move around within the firm. I felt it was easier to look outside the company for a new type of role than it was to look within the company - I ended up going to a company that is a competitor in an area that Jefferies is trying grow in.
