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

    Pros

    I've worked for four investment banks, Jefferies easily has the best culture.

    Cons

    The whole industry is over-regulated and pay is in a long term decline. Banks have to pay more for junior people to keep them from going to tech companies and they still have to pay the "star" bankers and research analysts top dollar, so everyone in between suffers in terms of compensation.


  2. "Forklift"
