Pros

it was a great internship program. i had wanted to work at lehman for a very long time. they have a great culture.

Cons

interned here right before it collapsed, which was unfortunate for me. i did not get an offer to return. go figure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

its unfortunate that the company collapsed that summer. i wish management had done something, obviously, so then i could have gotten a full time offer.

    Pros

    The firm was a great with a very team work and entrepreneur environment. However it often times lacked stucture and fairness for such a big firm.

    Cons

    Promotion and bonuses dictated by naptism and favoritism. Not at all based on merit and was extremely disappointing for such a great firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't go bankrupt, treat your employees with more respect, don't keep around poor management because of their connections, stop underpaying your employees.

    Not a bad place to work. Just not a great place either.

    Pros

    As a summer analyst in the leveraged loans group, I primarily did research on leveraged companies. A lot of time was spent alone behind a computer.

    Cons

    Lots of time working on cash flow models in Excel with little connection to the value they actually created. Also, listening in on conference calls was boring. Very little attention was paid to summer analysts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell you employees that everything is going to be fine when you're about to go under water nearly everyone is going to lose their job.
