Great company, very entrepreneurial provides good learning experience and friendly people. Gives junior employees a good amount of responsibility training is more of an apprenticeship rather than a formal training session
Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 20, 2015
I did not have a nice experience at Lazard. Managers were stifling and were not pleasant. I worked with one manager who would often scream at us and was very unprofessional. She did not show support whatsoever.
Senior Hedge Fund Accountant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 29, 2012
I learned about all aspects of a hedge fund from my manager. Management had a great understanding and willingness to teach. Co-workers were very helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with upper management to have a finished product at the end of the day. The hardest part of the job was multi-task on various projects at the same time.
