A good firm rising to the top

Senior Vice President (Current Employee)
New York, NY

ProsThe company is growing like a bat out of hell (i.e., 2008) -- though it actually avoided that carnage. Jefferies is growing in the U.S. and is now expanding aggressively into Europe and Asia.
While some managers are merely competent, the better ones are sound, practical and run the company.

ConsThings are happening almost too fast which ample opportunity for poor execution and operational error....so hold on tight.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere's no downside to overcommunicating in greater detail and with more frequency what's going on within the firm.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A strategy that will backfire

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    I have been working at Jefferies & Company


    Pros: A lot of enthusiastic people - and a lot of them quite young. They… Cons: But then you realize that the old boy network and mentality is still present. In this day and age is mistifying that this can still… Advice to Senior Management: No advice really - other than stop beeing so… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
