Jefferies has excellent momentum and is an innovative and exciting place to work. Junior people are given a lot of responsibility due to the small size of our deal teams.

The people, work life balance, business outlook


Downers

None other than the standard pitfalls of banking (long hours, compensation can dip in lean years)


Comments

In my belief, there is no better place to begin a career in Investment Banking than Jefferies. It is a unique combination of an agile, growing business; incredible opportunity and responsibility from day one; excellent leadership; opportunities for career development; and industry leadership

The culture and the mentors


Comments

On a day to day basis, my experience as an investment banking analyst is significantly better than my friends at other banks. It's very important to pick the bank based on the people and the values that seem important to them. While the deals I work on may not be as large or as "prestigious", I'm able to learn just as much, take on increased responsibility with lean deal teams, and have senior mentors that want to make sure I'm satisfied with my experience.
