Former employee - Associate

There were few, if any, internal mobility opportunities during the 4 years I was there, so that should be a definite priority for an ambitious employee ready to move forward after a couple of years in the first role.

Some people are intelligent, genuinely work hard, and it shows. Some people are not so intelligent, and do not work hard, but simply appear as they do, taking credit for things that others have done. Try not to fall into the latter, as that can be tempting. Unfortunately, you can advance in either path.

Former employee - Associate

I had good colleagues, but there were definitely slackers and those who clearly wanted to move ahead without doing much, but kept up the appearances. These guys destroyed the culture -- hard work, intelligence, collaboration.

Former employee - Managing Director

Suggest that there is less requirement for work on vacation

Former employee - Managing Director

We were proud of our brand.

Former employee - Vice President

Investment bank experience is valuable and thy all suck to be a woman working for them- so I would change that

Former employee - Vice President

Culture is like an investment bank

Former employee - Analyst

The name "Lazard" opens doors, period.

Former employee - Analyst

People are by-and-large unusual AND extremely bright. Lazard is a place for slightly eccentric geniuses. However, the lack of inspirational leadership means that attrition can be high.

Former employee - Vice President

No opportunity for junior people to growth up to the most senior ranks. There should be more turnover at MD level to allow young talents to grow up to the top spots

Former employee - Vice President

Very demanding environment, you need to be smart and well connected to be successful

Former employee - Associate

Wish to change the salary and opportunities to grow

Former employee - Associate

Hard work is valued at Lazard. You learn a ton and everyone respects the brand. Hit and miss on culture based on individual groups/teams. Each is run their own way

Former employee - Associate

Fiefdoms and everyone is self interested here. That said, very smart people to work with

Former employee - Vice President

If given the chance, I would not change a thing at this company.

Current employee - Vice President

Leadership has no interest in developing subordinates. Neopotism and cronyism are rampant.

Former employee - Associate

Uncollegial work culture
