I worked at Lehman Brothers part-time (more than an year)

Pros

bulge bracket company with a lot of resources. good name brand until bankruptcy. broad geographical reach. full service financial services company.

Cons

lots of upper management turnover. poor transparency with employees. difficult to get ahead if at a branch office. difficult to compete against other bulge bracket firms.

    Pros

    Part of the biggest bankruptcy in history. All very exciting!

    Cons

    Going bankrupt creates bad morale, especially when its done before pay day.

    I worked at Lehman Brothers

    Pros

    Far better work experience than the company that took over after the bankruptcy.

    Cons

    Far too much cronyism. Was often hard to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect your employees- realize that they are the backbone.
