    I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time

    Pros

    Learned about the asset recovery process across the full spectrum of capital markets, which is a transportable skill to other similar situations

    Cons

    Not a conventional career path since the purpose of the role is to manage the liquidation of distressed assets within an organisation in bankruptcy

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lehman Brothers (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    multiple interviews over a 3 month period. at least 5 days with 5-6 people interviewing me per day. People were friendly but you definitely needed to be able to articulate what was compelling abut their company and what your unique contribution would be.
