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

Pros

Easy to shine in short bursts

Cons

unprofessional 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 ManagementAdvice
