    Pros

    Great bank, wonderful people who took the time to explain everything to me. Great on resume. Really helpful experience if you want to work in finance.

    Cons

    Slightly smaller investment bank (boutique) than the big BBs and very intense work schedule.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lazard (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First round by phone, 4 to 5 interviews by video conference, one technical interview (case - straightforward questions about valuation, basic qualitative questions, accretion and dilution analyses). During the super-day 8 presidential interviews (tell me about yourself, why banking, why Lazard, tell me about some of the recent deals this office has done, etc.). All the process was very friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • Many behavioral questions. Why would someone invest in a AAA bond with a negative yield?   Answer Question
