    A lot of hands on work with computers
    Pay was decent
    In the heart of the city
    Managers were easy to get along with

    Pay and benefits could be better but overall well put together. Sometimes it didn't feel like a team oriented job and more like a peon in a big business.

    Keep on the good work with being professional and level headed with employees. I got plenty of feedback in my short time there.

    I have been working at Stifel Financial (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at Stifel for about a year now. I can honestly say I really enjoy it here. Usually with a new job, the honeymoon phase wears off but it still hasn't happened to me yet. Stifel offers annual bonuses and great work/life balance. We have free soda machines on several floors and free coffee. They will pay for any security licenses to be obtained. This, to me, shows they care about your personal career development. Everyone is very nice and pleasant to work with. They also have different catered events in the building which helps boost morale and brings employees closer.

    Cons

    Only con I can think of is the fees employees pay when trading. I've also heard salaries could be a little more competitive (although I have no complaints about mine).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Take care of your employees and they will take care of you.
