I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The Firm only recruited the brightest people so you were always working with people that hallenged you. But is was also a very team oriented company so the balance was important of moving business forward.

Cons

Towards the end there was morebegoninvolved by he senior management and that led to the rims downfall. They should have thought about employees who built the company and not there personal bank accounts.

Advice to Management

Don't let greed get in the way of doing the right thing, even if it is hard to do
