    I worked at Jefferies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to shine in short bursts

    Cons

    unprofessional environment populated by friends and family rather than by the talent. Senior management unaware that a company is made up of more than just sales and trading - it actually requires capable IT and middle office as well as a thoughtful investment in infrastructure and assets that support the business process. Penny wise and often pound foolish coupled with extravagant waste thrown at the wrong people

    Advice to Management

    Study the organization


  2. "Poor staffing and resource management"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Jefferies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some driven motivated and intelligent bankers who you can learn a great deal from.

    Cons

    Some of the team members are very poor managers and do not take an intelligent approach to the pitch generation or deal management process. The high attrition rate of employees reflects this shortcoming.

    Advice to Management

    Develop better HR practices. Cultivate employees.
