    I worked at Jefferies & Company full-time (more than a year)


    Small desk so, big exposure to new things. Decent autonomy and freedom of applying strategies. Exposure to large universe of underlying. Great middle office. Fast mgmt decisioning.


    Fewer client flow respect to larger shops. Longer IT developing timing. Small balance sheet. Fewer products to trade and propose to clients. Sales were not free to do their job basically.
