Most Helpful Positive Review

Former employee - Associate

Has an excellent senior equity research group (I can only speak of the E&P Group, where I worked). Also, Ron is an amazing CEO and SN growing rapidly, acquiring many of its competitors, is proof of that.

Most Helpful Critical Review

Former employee - Associate

Very top down culture, not enough deals, very shady HR policies in Chicago public finance division

Former employee - Associate

Stifel hires the best and brightest.

Former employee - Vice President

They were unwilling to use balance sheet for fixed income ( except muni)

Former employee - Vice President

Stifel is an equity shop first and foremost.

Former employee - Vice President

Felt like a small fish in big bowl working at Stifel.

Former employee - Associate

Associate promotion structure makes no sense; beneficial to Analyst3 financially (January 1 of 3rd year promotion for An3 committed to staying as As1). Creates complications with distribution of work / deal team structure.

Former employee - Associate

I am proud to have Stifel Healthcare on my resume when the biotech market was extremely hot; that said, limited M&A deal closure rate for HC group

Former employee - Associate

Culture depends what group you work for. HC / Tech / FIG (KBW) are most respected groups in the firm; you will be worked like bulge banks; other non-growth focused groups have much more relaxed lifestyle (consumer / metals & mining / transportation / etc)

Very top down culture, not enough deals, very shady HR policies in Chicago public finance division

Former employee - Associate

Very top down in specific offices and divisions like Chicago public finance team. Leadership was not transparent and did not take into account employee opinions at all.

Former employee - Vice President

Who you are friends with is more important than being good at your job. Talented smart people tend to leave this company fairly quickly. They definitely make you feel like you are just a number rather than a name.

Former employee - Vice President

Terrible culture. Smart people don't stay long.

Former employee - Vice President

Working at Stifel is like working with immature playground bullies.
