No opinion of CEO

Pros

The company was very helpful in allowing me to work from home when I moved. Lehman also did a good job of making training available to both consultants and employees

Cons

There was very little training for consultants. Senior Management drove company into ground and the months following the bankruptcy were chaotic

Advice to Management

I wish they didn't destroy the company with their short-sighted plan for growth. I've heard that former Lehman employees are not given the same respect as old and new Barclays hires

    Pros

    Lots of food around the office. Fast elevators to whisk you in and out. Some great people around to work with.

    Cons

    Aside from working at the flashpoint of the subprime financial meltdown, it's the incredibly political, aggressive environment. It's the kind of job you don't really need to think about.

    Advice to Management

    Give something back.


  2. Great rep, poor environment

    Pros

    People loved the green culture at Lehman Brothers, pay was good and firm had a great reputation which lead to opportunities

    Cons

    Senior management was mostly incompetent as is now obvious. working there was highly hierarchical in nature, lack of respect for junior employees

    Advice to Management

    Well first off, i wouldn't invest so heavily in structured credit products that you do not understand. second maybe you should have taken the buyout at a fair price before the bankruptcy
