I have been working at Jefferies & Company

Pros

A lot of enthusiastic people - and a lot of them quite young.
They are building things for the future and so there is quite some activity.

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 take place. I mean look how inefficient you can be and how many mistakes will be made by hiring people who have no knowledge of the business you are trying to build. Just because they are your buddies ? For gods sake there is one PM who was a HR person before now responsible your next trading platform... really ?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice really - other than stop beeing so arrogant. You really do not know what you are talking about.

    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.
