Unprofessional to an incompetent degree

Vice President (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Jefferies & Company full-time for more than 3 years

ProsEasy to shine in short bursts

Consunprofessional environment populated by friends and family rather than by the talent. Senior management unaware that a company is made up of more than just sales and trading - it actually requires capable IT and middle office as well as a thoughtful investment in infrastructure and assets that support the business process. Penny wise and often pound foolish coupled with extravagant waste thrown at the wrong people

Advice to Senior ManagementStudy the organization

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great experience rotating through the desks.

I worked at Jefferies & Company as an intern for less than a year


Pros: Small firm, so there's a lot of responsibility. Flat structure...you'll be speaking… Cons: Being small has its upsides...but also downsides: there's nowhere to hide so you… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
