    I worked at Lazard

    Pros

    1. Fantastic place to gain experience and work with some of the best minds
    2. Restructuring and FIG are probably the strongest groups

    Cons

    1. Resources and sharing can be very limited compared to other banks. They often "reinvent the wheel."
    2. While certianly not limited to just Lazard, the work of a few groups or stars there really can support many of the pricey senior partners. Post-Wasserstein, the number of idle "FOBs" (Friends of Bruce) with big pay packages swelled, which seemed to be his form of return-of-favor from his past career.
    3. Unfortuantely too many incompetent junior hires, often there from nepotism or favors (children of clients).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cash-out from the IPO lessened the urgency for continued hard work with many partners. Non-producing partners should go, or more should be converted to limited partners.
