I worked at Lazard Asset Management

Pros

Good Brand name on Wall Street. Firm has prestige for a smaller bank.

Cons

Morale was low during the IPO. There was a lot of negativity between the old guard nad the new guard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have been out of there for awhile but I have heard that some things have improved. Hopefully, the portfolio managers are now stronger.

    I worked at Lazard Asset Management part-time

    Pros

    Amazing culture with extremely intelligent people. Everyone is very kind and always willing to help when you're in need. There is so much flexibility and you are given options if you are wanting to move across to a different group within asset management. Everyone works as a team to achieve mutual goals and to become a very successful firm.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terrible - very low quality research done at the Firm, it's basically a sales machine

    I worked at Lazard Asset Management

    Pros

    For some reason, it has a decent name in investment management, especially global investing. Compensation is in line with much better investment management firms.

    Cons

    Management never worked in research, so the leaders of the firm are sales and operations people, not investors. That leads to a culture where process is unimportant, and shortcuts to strong performance are taken. Of course, there are no effective long-term shortcuts in investment management, so the best people leave and the mediocre people do whatever they can to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time thinking about what works long-term in the industry and what does not. When you hire, try to understand how passionate potential employees are about the job
