    I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company and culture. people were very smart and approachable

    Cons

    Disparity in salaries. There was no consistency at all. TDP growth was slow and had wired HR rules about how much salary bounce one could get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wish Lehman was still around

    I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge when it comes to technology.
    Used to be some great people to work with.
    What else can you say about a company that no longer exists?

    Cons

    We all know how this story ended.
    As the company grew, employees needs mattered less and less. It became a numbers game and employees were treated as such... a replaceable number.
    If you worked less than 50-60 hours a week, you were viewed as a slacker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect and they will respect you back.
