    I have been working at Lehman Brothers

    Pros

    Lehman Brothers possessed a very dynamic and diversed culture. It was forward-looking and the technologies used were always updated. They offered training/classes for free to enhance knowledge about the business.

    Cons

    Just like most companies, politics reigned. Some people were recognized more than others even if not deserved. Management could be more transparent regarding the true standing of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should also listen to their employees. Whilst clients are important, the people who made the company's success in the past rightfully deserved to be taken care of -- financially especially.

    I worked at Lehman Brothers

    Pros

    Pay comparable to street, well reputed similar to any other bulge bracket, good name to have on resume, good initial training programs.

    Cons

    Political, difficult career path, old school investment bank, lack of direction from senior management, not a lot of senior people who are good managers or have people skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to provide more visibility on direction of company and issues, don't coat how good things really are if they are not.
