    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    It no longer exists! While it existed, it was a pretty cool environment to work in. The people were very collaborative. It was the senior management that allowed greed to kill such a longstanding organization.

    Cons

    After over 150 years of being in business, greed caused the company to have to liquidate!

    Advice to Management

    They no longer exist. They are probably somewhere else killing the life of a corporation.
