I have been working at JMP Securities full-time
The firm has a solid position as a mid-market investment bank and plays in that role very well.
In general, the people that work at JMP are very good people with strong morals and family values.
As the firm increases the percentage of revenue coming from its M&A / capital raising, it needs to hire junior resources to adequately staff those deals.
Advice to Management
Management should recruit earlier in the cycle to avoid getting the "leftovers". They should also be quicker to promote good talent and churn under performing talent at the junior levels.
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JMP Securities (San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.
Received an interview off of on-campus recruiting and the first round was a phone interview. They asked briefly about myself, walk me through my resume, then went straight into technicals. The questions were not too hard but studying must be done. You should have both a finance and accounting background if you want to be most prepared to answer all the questions thoroughly.
