    I worked at Piper Jaffray full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Remarkably enduring brand
    Strong senior bankers dedicated to delivering for clients
    Good cultural feel in individual industry groups

    Cons

    Persistently and demonstrably poor and inexperienced leadership, with a bewildering sense of entitlement
    Lack of client engagement and accountability on part of senior management
    Absence of vision and passion to win at helm
    Very siloed structure with disincentives to cross industry teams and work as one firm

    Advice to Management

    Have vision and exert leadership rather than reciting corporate platitudes as strategy.

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

    Pros

    Talented individual contributors. A great place to learn without the rewards.

    Cons

    Inept management, lacks talent across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Stay away from playing politics. Please compare yourself to your peers. Maybe you talked yourself in to a promotion. Ask yourself if you are really qualified for the job? If not, step aside.
