Pros

Great place to grow and start your career

Cons

This is not a place to stay, it's best described as a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should value the employees who are the most loyal. There is a great deal of talent within the firm who are continuously overlooked for promotions every year.

    I worked at Lazard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You will get a lot of experience across all functions of an investment banker, because you are on a deal team that is smaller than what is typical for bulge brackets (basically 2-4 people vs 3-6 at a bulge bracket).
    Pay on par with bulge brackets.

    Cons

    Culture is sometimes corrosive and could be improved.
    Analysts and associate work very long hours. The company has not announced a policy for analysts/associate that allows them to take some weekends off (even though competitors like Goldman and BAML have).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the culture, try to keep up with bulge brackets in terms of work/life balance.

    Pros

    Lazard is very well positioned in the investment banking and asset management businesses which makes lazard a great and stable place to work

    There are few cons as the work life balance is good, pay is generally fair but not better than average, and the environment is relatively flat which is good
