No opinion of CEO

Pros

Lots of food around the office. Fast elevators to whisk you in and out. Some great people around to work with.

Cons

Aside from working at the flashpoint of the subprime financial meltdown, it's the incredibly political, aggressive environment. It's the kind of job you don't really need to think about.

Advice to Management

Give something back.

    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


  2. "Great place but now its gone"

    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 ,
