    I worked at Lehman Brothers

    Pros

    Strong track record in departments. Growth potential at firm. Training for employees. Continuous learning. Nice outings to sports, cultural, and other events. Many incentives for employees.

    Cons

    Stock price. Important to plan time off; ie advise office of an upcoming trip. Given size of company, interaction with senior people may occur 1-2x per quarter. However, people show willingness to meet with employees at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in employee development. Continue to pursue growth opportunities.

In what could be called the collapse heard 'round the world, venerable investment bank Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy in September 2008, ending a reign of some 160 years in financial services.
