Lehman: Don't bother

Assistant Vice President (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsWhile it existed, they did pay every 2 weeks, and they kept me employed for 13 years.

ConsLots of compensation was made in company stock which became worthless at bankruptcy. Yearly bonuses that were used as basis for "total compensation" included restricted stock which was values at grant price giving the false impression that we actually made more money than we did.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't gamble my career away.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
