Pros

People loved the green culture at Lehman Brothers, pay was good and firm had a great reputation which lead to opportunities

Cons

Senior management was mostly incompetent as is now obvious. working there was highly hierarchical in nature, lack of respect for junior employees

Advice to Management

Well first off, i wouldn't invest so heavily in structured credit products that you do not understand. second maybe you should have taken the buyout at a fair price before the bankruptcy

    Pros

    Worked with Lehman d for almost 4 years got very well but made me lazy as a network manager, you get to direct others so you don't have to do it yourself

    Cons

    they went bankrupt leaving me unemployed , but for the most part it was a great place to work nice people great pay

    Advice to Management

    Should have held the place together and taken a bailout , and we would still have jobs i think ,


  2. "Good experience"

    Pros

    Good culture, surrounded by bright people. Good work life balance. The pay is comparable to other investment firms.

    It's in bankruptcy now. Majority of legacy Lehman in New York is now part of BarCap.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, be aware of the risk.
