I worked at Lazard

Pros

Shop still has semi prestigious panache.
Some smart, capable people.
Gaining market share
Less red tape than a bulge bracket

Cons

Terrible culture, misleading management, unhappy employees
Compensation lags peers; at least from what I saw....
Terrible IT system... seriously stuck in 1995

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire competent management. Seriously, communicate to employees and get away from a culture of fear to one of achievement. Improve compensation.
