I have been working at Piper Jaffray full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great 401K match, generally nice people

Cons

Firm-wide compensation has declined meaningfully in recent years; Management is concentrated in Minneapolis and is out of touch with what is happening in New York; nepotism is rampant and promotions/layoffs are strongly biased towards the good Minnesota folk.

    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.
