    Prestigious M&A shop... but still investment banking end of the day

    I worked at Lazard

    Pros

    Very prestigious M&A shop with an ability to take on more responsibility as an analyst than most other Firms on the street. Having worked at more than one bulge bracket, I found the most rewarding and best learning experience at Lazard. The financial modeling experience is very high at Lazard and the breadth of projects worked on was good.

    Cons

    Leverage workforce more than other Firms = more hours, more work, more stress. As with most investment banks, the better an analyst you are, the more you will work because every manager wants you to do their work,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to keep the good training experience but try not to run kids into the ground
