    Pros

    Little known value investor with top decile long term track record. Great culture, good people. Recently moved office to New York.

    Cons

    Ian Cumming no longer involved. Merger with Jefferies has caused some integration issues. Losing some of the original Leucadia culture.

    Advice to Management

    Joe Steinberg is a legend of the investing industry. Hopefully he continues to run the show and keeps the culture and value investing framework intact.

    Pros

    Great experience sourcing billion dollar deals. Work closely with upper management although the atmosphere is a bit stiff.

    non-conventional work environment housed in old homes in downtown salt lake city. Stiff envirnoment. Professional dress.

    don't retire

    Pros

    MK Resources' best quality was the flexibility of upper management. It was truly a place where you got out what you put in.

    Cons

    Unfortunately job security wasn't guaranteed. As it is a contract business, work was dependent on demand which could fluctuate wildly.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to work on your networking skills, to try and stabilize the work pipeline. Going from contract to contract can be difficult.


  7. "Pays well"
