Opinions on Lazard vs. Rothschild (both NYC, full-time analyst)? Saw content on WSO, but updates were from 2011. I know both firms have changed a lot in the past few years, and am interested to learn more about their reputation, deal flow, experiences, offices, path forward, etc.

OP asked about 4-5 criteria and almost every single one Lazard beats out Rothschild. That isn't to say Rothschild isn't a good firm but it has nothing on Lazard. OP didn't say he liked the people at Rothschild more, he wanted to know about the firms

Reputation - Lazard
Deal flow - Lazard
Office - Lazard (been there, great office)
Future outlook- Lazard (Rothschild isn't growing in the US so Lazard should still be a better)

And please "culture and people" how about you don't f up an informational interview and pretend to act like you know what you're talking about.

Like everyone else would probably say, Lazard is the better option. That being said, haven't both banks been done with full-time recruiting for the past several months? Do you have an offer with both banks or are you just preparing for the future?
