    I worked at Stifel Financial full-time

    Pros

    Not too big, not too small. IT department is responsive. Great bonuses. Good work hours and conditions. The department I was in had a great open door environment. You were free to talk to coworkers and had adequate help when needed. Very relaxed. Office was physically nice.

    Cons

    The department was bloated. They would hire people even though many of the incumbents didn't have enough work to do. Direct supervisor wouldn't give additional responsibilities despite being asked for them many times. He was a micro manager and would email me request to do something that would take less than a minute to do because he had already done 99% of the work already. The department needed to be restructured.

    Former Employee - Associate Analyst in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Stifel Financial full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting point to career in research. Well respected brand on Wall Street with a growing recognition. Office environment is extremely friendly.

    Cons

    Management has become disconnected from the associates and more involved in growing the company from the outside (acquisitions) as opposed to internal career development for existing associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more of a hands on approach to associate development as well as associate advancement. Associate advancement is tied too much to the success of the analyst and not the associates capabilities.

    Depending on which office you work out of, you may have a great experience or a very very bad one. Management problems.

    I worked at Stifel Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great middle management people. But you must find them.There are also some managers that should not even be in the business and have no place in any kind of management role. And they are allowed to continue problematic managing or absentee managing due to poor oversight by higher ups.

    Cons

    Poor compensation. Very poor oversight of mismanaged branches. Employee benefits are not great. Overall not a great experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management must supervise branches better and listen to employees. There are many unhappy people and you are losing great individuals, both sales and support staff, because of mismanagement.
