I worked at Jefferies & Company full-time for 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

    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 and working with MDs from day 1.
    Good intern projects...no busy work

    Cons

    Being small has its upsides...but also downsides: there's nowhere to hide so you have to learn things quickly. At larger firms, you have a longer grace period.
