I worked at Jefferies & Company

Pros

Working on smaller middle-market deals means your work during the transaction has an impact. You have the opportunity to speak to the senior management of the client companies.

Cons

The senior bankers are not supportive of work-life balance AT ALL. Very political corporate culture. Not very supportive of women.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The corporate culture is the main problem I have with the firm but it is something that is difficult to fix.

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are looking to work in middle-market. They don't have the brand recognition of other banks outside of financial circles but they do work on some good deals. Comp is similar to other banks although bonuses are probably lower.

    Cons

    Still not considered a top shop for M&A compared to other middle-market banks, although they have a decent flow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out who you are, your core competencies, and strengthen those areas. Don't try to be everything to everybody.
