    I have been working at Jefferies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Jefferies is one of the only remaining full service investment bank that has a powerful culture and a mission statement employees truly believe in. In an industry where compensation is similar wherever you go, culture, ownership and pride in your firm is the difference maker for employees and ones clients.

    Cons

    It is currently a cyclically challenged business.

    Advice to Management

    do all you can to sustain this powerful culture
