Finance (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 24, 2017
If you are looking to consider a non-front office role here - don't. Or consider it for a year, knowing you will leave in a year. Systems are really really terrible. As in, input a number and stare at the screen for 20 minutes waiting for the values to refresh, when comparable systems at other firm's are real-time. Also - micro-managing at it's worst. Ask yourself if you want to work for a bank with the lowest employee review on Glassdoor.
Free bagels on Friday's .. then again they were never intended for our department.
Terrible systems, support groups not valued whatsover

dealing with several personalities can be a bit challenging but you take it all in strives. each one can have you doing something different than the next person. you stay busy by keeping track of the things the bankers needed/wanted along with the day to day work needed in the office.
Accounts Associate (Former Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – March 15, 2016
Enjoyed working for this company for eight years. Heavy Data entry which kept me very busy. Managers were very helpful in the growth of their employees. Friendly co workers and most of all team players.
Great, professional and fun team with superior compensation
Futures application support analyst (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 3, 2015
Jefferies was a great company to work for. The financial compensation was on the high side of the scale. I learned more about the business and technical side than I had at my previous employers. The team I worked with was second to none as we were all friends and worked very well together as one cohesive unit. The hardest part of the job was the extremely high stress environment due to each clients financial risk and the need to mitigate that financial risk in a time sensitive manner. The most enjoyable part was the office environment and the great comradery shared between my team, my management and I.
Great pay, exceptional team, great work enviroment/office
Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – June 23, 2015
I worked with outstanding management and enjoyed a tremendous career opportunity at Jefferies LLC. Jefferies encourages a collegiate work environment and encourages career development. The most enjoyable part of my job was collaborating with my team and my managers. As I learned in the past that much of business hinges on business relationships and this became critical here at Jefferies as I needed to begin to foster new relationships across all business units within a short time. It has been a challenging and rewarding opportunity on so many levels.
There is a lot of exposure as Jefferies is a small firm. However, it is favorable if one is very focused and ambitious.
Mail Clerk (Current Employee) – Manhattan, NY – September 26, 2014
I reviewed loans that came across my desk, made sure all the numbers were correct on the loan application, if everything was good and the numbers appeared correct i would then pass the application along so the application can proceed. If the numbers were not correct i would pass the application back down stated what changes need to be made etc.The co-workers there were great, always willing to lend a helping hand with any problems or concerns. I enjoyed everything about the job. I have no complaints.
The satisfaction of working alone, or work with a group.

Worked a lot of overtime due to the fact that I lived 10 minutes away. Hard to keep employees. Very high turn over rate. The manager did not have good management skills in the fact he scolded employees in front of customers
