No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great place to work. People are cordial, and welcoming. The culture is strong yet inclusive. Management is very approachable, and responsibilities are high. I would say like any BB, Lehman was a prestigious place to work. In IBD you need to work somewhere where you feel proud to be because the hours will wear on you after a while.

Cons

Job security, obviously, working there during the summer was less risky then a full time position, but you still had to question whether or not the company would make it through. Although Lehman went bankrupt, it should be interesting to see what happens with former Lehmanites going to Barcap. In that regard the new firm would be a melting pot for both entities especially in NA.

Advice to Management
