    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lehman had a challenging, albeit cut throat, dog-eat-dog environment. It had great expense reimbursement, held costs down while allowing you to travel like a king.

    Cons

    Well, it went down the tubes due to stupid real estate investments and pretty much took the whole US economy with it. So that's how Lehman will be remembered, instead of as the American Economic Engine that is was for 158 years...

    Advice to Management

    Too late now for advice.


  2. "Ambitious, entrepreneurial but not as well managed as the top investment banks"
