I was wondering what the market thoughts are on Jefferies. I've noticed they've made a fair amount of redundancies over the past year which I guess is a cause of concern?
what's everyones views on them? How do they compare with the other mid market firms like William Blair, Baird, elite boutiques like Lazard, Evercore and the bulge brackets?
How's deal flow?
Hours / culture?
How do they stack for exit ops into PE?
What are their top sector teams? (Preferably in London)
Open to overall discussion but would prefer for London specially.
