I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time for more than a year

Pros

I was in the Operations Analyst program for the full 2 years and it was a great program. We were given books and classes about various financial topics, there were always networking events, and there was a solid structure for moving into a management role after the program was finished.

Cons

Some of the program was disorganized, but that's it.

    I worked at Lehman Brothers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a job. It pays the bills and to be honest remuneration is not that bad given the market conditions. In addition, if you like to doss around, this is great for you as there is not much work on

    Cons

    No progression - you work yourself out of a job. Management is rude, confused and only concerned with maintaining their positions / status quo. No real work to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End this charade as soon as possible
