What makes it so great? Wall Street is rolling in dough, and wherever the cashflow goes, you can expect young hopefuls to follow. Lehman is a popular destination: Last year, 530 new college grads were hired for jobs in the company's U.S. offices and analysts received an average starting salary of $60,000. Almost 90% of new hires are mentored. And if you like to travel or want to experience life outside the U.S., you're in luck: the company has offices in a number of cities, including London, Paris, Milan, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.
