Company culture
Ability to grow within company

Bankruptcy, limited departments to choose from, combining culture with Barclays

Keep doing what you are doing-- net profits are a good sign. How did Lehman and Barclays culture combine after the bankruptcy?

  1.  

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
