I have been working at Jefferies & Company

Pros

Fraternal type of enviornment with a emphasis on hard work. At times, long hours and not much emphasis on facetime.

Cons

Could use some more structure but as the cmopany has a start-up type of feel, this is expected. Management is working rapidly to put in the necessary structure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management can be a bit more congenial and friendly to new recruits they have hired. Step out of the office a bit more and say hello!

    I have been working at Jefferies & Company

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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