I worked at Piper Jaffray full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Talented individual contributors. A great place to learn without the rewards.

Cons

Inept management, lacks talent across the board.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay away from playing politics. Please compare yourself to your peers. Maybe you talked yourself in to a promotion. Ask yourself if you are really qualified for the job? If not, step aside.

    Pros

    Exposure to C-level executives, great learning experience. You get to do all the work - learning- with everyone else is ready to take credit

    Cons

    No work life balance
    Inexperienced senior management incapable of sourcing deals that will actually close
    Dissatisfaction at every level due to compensation or nature of work resulting in everyone trying to look for an exit
