I worked at Jefferies & Company as an intern (less than an 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.

    I worked at Jefferies & Company as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with various desks. The staff was extremely nice and wanted to teach as much as possible. Had company wide teach-ins. There was a lot of events for interns.

    Cons

    Did not offer jobs to any intern in the Futures department and the program was missing structure in many parts.

    I worked at Jefferies & Company full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
