I worked at Jefferies & Company

Pros

Invests in the latest trends and technologies, so are able to work on leading cutting edge platforms and systems there.

Cons

No matter how hard you work, the credit goes to someone above you who did nothing to assist you with success.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize the people down the chain. Not just financially but for their work and effort. Make them want to work harder for you.

    I worked at Jefferies & Company

    Pros

    The people you work with are very capable; I found my co-workers very helpful and am proud to know them.

    Cons

    From what I understand, you might not work as hard as in the investment banking divisions of UBS or another bulge bracket investment bank, but you will be working 90 hours a week plus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, be more open to listening to your employees about ways that they could increase their own productivity. If you expect people to hand over their lives to a company, you should be willing to invest in their productivity. When you're working a 21 hour day, a 10% increase in productivity is extremely helpful.
