    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.
