I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

whilst the bank was running - times were good. good environemnt, good career ladder, good pay. not so anymore ...

Cons

the closing of the firm was a blow to the career prospects it offered, the career ladder collapsed. the pay stopped and things generally took a turn for the worse.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very good compensation, fair amount of autonomy from management, enjoyed most of the people I worked with. Ahead of other investment banks in promotion of women.

    Cons

    Too many lateral hires caused culture to be poorly defined; there were disparate values among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late now, but I would have suggested trying to grow more from within.
