Pros

Lazard has a great reputation and is generally a good place to work. The place has some very talented and reputed senior level bankers. Deal quality and flow is generally good and since it is not a bulge-bracket, you avoid some of the non-sensical pitching you see at the larger banks.

Cons

The company is light on admin and you often have to get a whole lot of work admin done yourself. The offices are dated and in need of new furniture. Primary focus is US and UK, France in Europe. Insignificant in Asia.

Advice to Management

There needs to be more communication between regions and offices. I feel each office and country is run like a separate bank. There is less sharing of information or data or ideas than one sees in more global banks
