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

    Pros

    Lehman had a challenging, albeit cut throat, dog-eat-dog environment. It had great expense reimbursement, held costs down while allowing you to travel like a king.

    Cons

    Well, it went down the tubes due to stupid real estate investments and pretty much took the whole US economy with it. So that's how Lehman will be remembered, instead of as the American Economic Engine that is was for 158 years...

    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.
