Stifel - Operations View Point
Operations (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOApril 4, 2014
Pros: free soda, coffee, tea
Cons: pay, benefits, culture
Stifel is a typical corporate job.
Daily duties with a mix of projects. Reports. Phone Calls. A typical cubicle job. Very little prospect for moving up if you are new to the firm. Management is good for the most part, depending on your department.

A challenging work environment
Registered Sales Assistant (Current Employee), O'Fallon, MOOctober 14, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: no advancement
I work very hard for the clients and the brokers. I always make the client feel like they are the only one I am working with, I do not rush them when they have questions or concerns. I always remember that it is the clients money and they have worked hard for it. I am very professional with the brokers by offering suggestions and have extensive experience – more... dealing with Insurance and Annuity companies. I enjoy the marketing aspect of the job, meeting new potential clients. I do not have a typical day of work. Working with (4) brokers and hundreds a clients, they dictate my day. So I rarely have a dull day. The hardest part of my job is keeping all the balls in the air and making sure nothing falls through the cracks. I also cross train employees. – less

Productive and welcoming place to learn and grow
Client Service Associate (Former Employee), Uniondale, NYJune 28, 2013
Colleagues are very helpful and willing to share the knowledge that they have. This is a warm work atmosphere where all employees say hi and celebrate the good days and bad with each other, and management is very understanding and flexible with your daily needs.
Unfortunately, compensation is low and advancement does not happen quickly.

Great opportunity to get your foot in the door and expand your relations network.
Summer Internship (Former Employee), Orland Park, ILApril 23, 2013
Pros: free lunches, great people
Cons: very monotonous
As a intern I organized individual broker accounts increasing office productivity, and created recruitment files through MS Excel. I learned about financial services and different financial advising strategies. My co-workers were much more experienced and did not hesitate to help me no matter what. The hardest part of my job was the lack of direction. – more... This encouraged me to become more independent and develop strong decision making skills. The most enjoyable part of my job was the one on one meetings with one of the workers who took me under his wing to give me industry tips. – less
