Very fast-paced company that was well-organized but stratified

Pros

When it was in business, the corporate culture encouraged innovation and moving fast, usually to the detriment of documentation and organization. International opportunities were also largely encouraged: transferring internally to international locations was quite common

Cons

To the detriment of its fast paced culture, the company was very political in its inner dealings. Employee communication was mostly cheerleading, with very little important information. Though it ran like a well-oiled machine, roles were quite set in stone, and advancement was gauged more on perception rather than results.

Advice to Management

Strike a better balance between work and life, and change the culture towards progression rather than stress out the staff to keep catching up. Try to get back the talent that left after the insolvency.

    Pros

    Lehman was a good place to work. Salary and benefits were good. Fellow employees were smart and good to work with.

    Cons

    Total comp included restricted stock units that could not be acted upon for five years after receiving them. Large company made upward mobility difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Lehman as it was ceases to exist. Middle management did a good job and treated employees well. I am satisfied with how I was treated.
