Team Rankings At EBs (US)

Hi all,
Which are currently considered the best teams at US Elite Boutiques in terms of culture, exit opportunities, and deal flow reputation?
Any opinions/insights regarding Lazard's EMEA and US teams would also be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Will opine here with my 2c;

- Top teams; HC, Energy and Power, and CRL - all incredibly strong in their field from MM up to much larger transactions, very strong deal flow, VERY long hours though and they rinse the juniors dry. You'll learn a lot, but it will be your life. 

- Culture; Quite old school, surrounded by an array of people from various backgrounds, some people that are a little "too old" school, but overall a great place to work.

- Exit opps; As said on here numerous times, GS/JP/MS are the top 3 for all the biggest funds and that won't change, but most others UMM and certainly all MM will be on the phone if you do your analyst stint at R&Co.

Hopefully helpful.

Thanks - very useful. 

I was under the impression that HC and CRL are industry leading (i.e. top ranked) teams but that strongest teams for E&P are at MS, Barclays and JPM. Has E&P at R&Co perhaps recently improved in the rankings?

Also, do you have any insights regarding the Industrials and TMT teams?
