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 Management

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

    Pros

    Wonderful people and great environment, people are respectful towards each other and the work done is very interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Long hours in investment banking and not enough time off for vacations. I have to do 100+ weeks very often.

    Advice to Management

    Be more considerate towards your employees so it will be better to the work environment and also hire more people
