I worked at Jefferies & Company

Pros

An essentially flat file management structure. Typical of the industry trends in compensation, the majority of bonuses are paid in stock. The upside is that stock has performed relatively well.

Cons

Can be difficult at times to navigate conflicting interests of various divisions and individuals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to find a head of equity research that has actual equity research experience and competence, so that needs of clients and analysts are met and a first class product can be produced.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
