Pros

Good salary, convenient location and accessibility.

Cons

The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Managers create their little empires and spend most of their time preserving their power. Some managers are rude and abusive to employees. Company culture discourages sharing of knowledge, teamwork and innovation in general.
Managers micromanage employees to a huge degree. Managers are feared and most employees do not feel comfortable giving their opinion or disagreeing.

Advice to Management

You have a very knowledgeable and talented group of employees. You should encourage teamwork, sharing of information and knowledge.
Company has a lot of potential if management is willing to update their processes and procedures.

    Pros

    Great place to get a generalist experience in analyst class! I would highly recommend people to work at Jefferies. Good culture.

    Cons

    Jefferies doesn't have a strong brand as some of the bulge bracket firms in terms of investment banking in the US or internationally.

    Advice to Management

    I would get rid of some of the senior bankers who don't add to revenue or for the office culture.

    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 Management

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