    Pros

    Great people to work with, great culture, amazing location in the city being on the top floors of 30 Rock, lots of exposure to other areas of the business

    Cons

    Upper management is stubborn and clueless when making decisions, refuse to change their ways to adapt to a changing industry, little to no investments in technology for their employees, salaries seem very skewed with few making all the money while the little guys suffer

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - People in general are friendly and approachable. - Brand is good to have on your resume since it seems to be respected in the industry. - As other reviewers have mentioned, good work life balance since culture and management foster complacency.

    Cons

    - Little to no meaningful communication from senior management. Town halls are basically meaningless and a waste of time. - Only a handful of senior people have decision making power but are only concerned about their own personal interests and shifting the blame. - Nearly no diversity whatsoever and even employee infinity groups are “supervised” by HR. Super top heavy and no room for cultivating or grooming junior talent. - No KPIs for Sales - sales people are called marketers. If there are annual AUM/sales targets, no one seems to know them.
