I have been working at Lazard full-time (More than 10 years)

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 Management

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 (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 Management

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