    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Serves as a good "boot camp" for people new to sell side -You will appreciate all future jobs much more -You learn the "red flags" of a work environment -Decent resume-builder

    Cons

    -Unending hours, not great pay under senior level -Absolutely no regard whatsoever for employees as human beings. Actually not exaggerating. -Zero, and I mean zero, HR supervision. Picture 1960's. -All the negatives of unvestment banking lifestyle but not the pay

    Advice to Management

    Care a little more about the people who are helping you make your money, even if it's just a "cost of doing business" like research. Or don't , but be honest about it.
