    I worked at Jefferies & Company

    Pros

    Good benefits. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Management does a poor job of communication. Poor or lack of end of year review system. Terrible bonuses & annual raises. Lack of diversity. Very difficult move up in the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees right and you will get more out of them. Many people are underpaid and slack off in the office as a result. Low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on mentoring and retaining smart Analysts and Associates
    More emphasis on live deal work and technical financial modeling
