Mediocre middle market bank
Vice President (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 28, 2013
Lack of infrastructure forces bankers to perform non-value added work that unnecessarily lengthens the work day. Lack of communication by upper management and clear performance measures creates uncertainty about job security and future advancement

Piper, Jaffray! I loved this place to work.
Bond Trader (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNFebruary 27, 2013
Pros: knowledge
Cons: working long hours.
I was very young when I started at Piper, Jaffray. I started at the bottom and worked my way up. I needed to learn about municipal bonds and how they work. Each municipal bond is different. I takes a long time to learn how each bond works. And then teaching about the bonds to other brokers. Once your knowledge of bonds in known, it's very easy to get – more... the brokers to sell them to our customers.
The group of people I worked with were very enjoyable. We worked together as a team. The trading desk, had to work together. And we did it well. It's a great company. And I enjoyed working here. – less
