    I have been working at Jefferies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flat organizational structure, easy access to senior management, lots of client exposure, growing firm with tons of opportunity, exciting place to be since we are moving up market

    Cons

    Always trying to compete with the bulge bracket, which is tough especially on balance sheet. Many senior bankers are not open to change.

    Advice to Management

    Make the upward review process better

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Jefferies.

    Started off with 2 phone interviews and then a superday with 4 interviews in the new york office. Asked a lot about my prior working experience. I had one brain teaser and asked if I had a personal portfolio of investments
