    I worked at Lehman Brothers as a contractor

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for at the time I was there. I had a great team working for a very significant project and loved my time there

    Cons

    I personally did not have any draw backs whilst at Lehman's, maybe because I was contracting. But I never had any negative experience there.

    Advice to Management

    No sure I have any advice to give owing to the existence of the company at this time. But if I were to say anything it would be on wages, and I'm sure it may have changed if they were still on.
