    I worked at Stifel Financial full-time

    Pros

    Working there gave me an unique opportunity to learn about the inner-workings of the stock market. It also gave me an inside look at corporate sexism.

    Cons

    There are no women on the Stifel executive team to date. The company did not provide me with opportunities to advance, but male counterparts were offered training for advancement often.

    Advice to Management

    Employ more women and minorities and give them opportunities to advance.

    I worked at Stifel Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hard to think of one. Entire experience was negative. Would never work there again. Disposable at all times with no appreciation.

    Cons

    Always have a backup plan. This company will dispose of you regardless of tenure or performance. The benefits are subpar..

    Advice to Management

    Don't have any advice for management. They do a pretty good job of navigating a challenging market environment.
