Intern (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 22, 2017
Laid back but challenging work environment where interdepartmental associates share cordial relationships and appear generally satisfied with their work. Hands off management style allows for autonomy in own projects and discretion to resolve issues according to employee's own strengths.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Oil City, PA – October 7, 2017
I worked for Stifel as a paid internship for college and it was a great learning experience within the financial world. This job also taught me basic life skills when it came to time management and organizational skills. I also got a lot of experience working with CRM systems.
SR. COMPENSATION ANALYST (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – September 24, 2017
The environment is toxic and no direction.. Management is into bullying and using intimidating tactics as a form of getting work completed. Management was not about goal setting. Fly by the seat of your pants kind of culture.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Redding, CA – August 16, 2017
Reception: Phones, greeting clients, clerical. Great place to learn something everyday; 401k plans, IRAs, etc. My branch manager is the best boss in the world. Culture is fun and casual. Hardest part of the job is an unpredictable market. Loved the team-work environment!
Financial Advisor/ - Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Quincy, IL – April 7, 2017
The main manager of operations was a jerk who did not honor his word. He made promises he did not keep, unprofessional conduct was often exhibited. He went off on me for something my sales assistant did in frustration. Sent me on wild goose chases for promised promotions that did not come to be.

Good corporate culture let the advisors work at what they wanted to meet the employee and corporate goals. Employees had goals that they wanted to meet and the company enabled ollowed them the space to meet those goals in the fashion that worked for each employee.

Customer Service (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – August 17, 2016
Mostly, I liked the people I worked with! However, the finance industry isn't for everyone. I learned a lot about myself. I loved working with my clients and I will miss them the most. But, reporting to a variety of advisors can be the most difficult part because everyone has their own set of expectations. It's hard to conform to all of the advisors, the clients and yourself.
Market Data Procurement Analyst (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – August 11, 2016
I love the company, however, my current manager is unkind and it's difficult to get the normal job function done wondering the next time an explosion will occur. Wish I could stay longer as I like the firm and its values but there is always a chance that one person could stand in your way of true happiness in your career.

Not great health insurance, expensive and it doesn't cover much
Was able to run my unit on my terms as long as the numbers were always there.
Managing Director (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – March 26, 2015
The best thing about my job was management had a "hands off" approach. Most enjoyable part of the job was being given the opportunity to build and maintain great relationships with clients , many of whom became good friends.
A great place to work and learn technical aspects of trading
Team Leader (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 22, 2014
My typical day is always busy. I learn more everyday while I'm performing my job assignment. My management is always there to assist and encourage job proficiency and efficiency. My co-workers are fun to work with and make my day go fast. The hardest part of the job is not having enough time to resolve every crisis. Most enjoyable part of the job is working in the downtown business area of St. Louis.
