    I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great company and culture. people were very smart and approachable

    Cons

    Disparity in salaries. There was no consistency at all. TDP growth was slow and had wired HR rules about how much salary bounce one could get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wish Lehman was still around
