    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.
