    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Superb work environment, excellent culture, pay master. Have opportunities to grow. It is one of the best companies to work with.

    Cons

    People seeking onsite opportunities will be disappointed as they don't have much. Moreover, you can't think of long term onsite opportunities, as they had setup business in India to reduce cost.

    Advice to Management

    Communication should be more clear and less risk should be taken by the management. Moreover, employees should be given stock option which can be en cashed soon.

    I have been working at Lehman Brothers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great unique career experience, the bank invested a lot of time in their staff and the compensation was good. A lot of excellent people professionally and socially.

    Cons

    Obviously the firm going into administration, the job could no longer be guaranteed and the workforce was wound down. This had a negative impact on the atmosphere.

    Pros

    Great name, smart people, lots of growth potential (if willing to stay a while).

    Cons

    There are so many people at Lehman it's hard to get a leg up on anyone because everyone is as smart as you are or smarter.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have meetings just to have meetings. They should be meaningful and productive.
