Equity Research Analyst, Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – December 18, 2017
The job is subject to some brutal hours but the pay is nearly unmatched for a finance/econ student out of college. Managment is average at best but the company is actively making changes to improve this.
Typical hours per day were from 7:30-4 but this was flexible. Fairly easy to get time off. I had a great manager that allowed us to get our work done and provided support when needed. Most people friendly, some not, just like any company. Operations is a small group so not a lot of opportunity to move around within that area.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – April 14, 2016
Culture problems seem prevalent throughout company--specifically the lack of accountability for actions taken (including senior management). This has been an employee concern for several years.Low employee morale and senior management is very "clique-ish"--SF and NY feel very isolated from HQ in Minneapolis.
rebranded and recent acquisitions; increasing footprint
not competitive; management and execs have no pulse on internal culture
Service Representative/Network Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – March 23, 2016
working at Piper Jaffray was my first IT job, and I was really happy until they outsourced everything. Co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was leaving. The best part was going into the office daily and seeing co-workers.
Municipal Investment Banking Analyst (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 24, 2015
Company is good for work-life balance, but from what I heard from full-times compensation is lower than industry average. Staff is generally nice and great to work with, except not necessarily the most educated.
