Pros

Salary, bonuses and benefits are the biggest plus at this location...though you must work hard to earn them. Work/life balance is good too. Overall, nice people to work with.

Cons

Workload is overwhelming. Large producers are able to treat others with little or no respect and behave poorly as long as they produce.

Advice to Management

Check in with support staff from time to time.

  2. "Lots of learning but senior staff wastes all days in meetings so you have to keep your finance books for reference"

    Pros

    Great place to work. Lots of new things to learn. Things change very quickly due to the nature of business. Whatever you did one week back might not be useful anymore for the management so you have to keep learning.
    Pay and bonuses are competitive with the market.

    Cons

    Not much support from the management for learning new things. You are on your own. Some of the products are very complex and you need someone to explain it to you. Some of the staff was probably born in Piper Jaffray and will die in Piper Jaffray as they don't have anyother place to go. So they are not very open to new ideas. 70% of the money goes to investment bankers in salaries and bonuses so not much is left for the other groups.

    Advice to Management

    Revise the pay structure. Promote from with in and be open to new ideas. Waste less time in meetings so that you can be available to your staff for questions.
