    WHAT?!!?
    Between Lazard, Rothschild and Morgan Stanley of course Morgan Stanley offers the best career prospects. I mean they were number 1 in global M&A in 2009. Plus MS in Spain has good deal flow, if you dont like it, you can always relocate a year down the road. Unfortunately, we are living in a world where the BRAND matters much more than anything. It is what it is and you gotta play this-always go for the brand name (GS-MS-JPM-The rest). Its like admission to Uni. Why do people apply to Oxbridge-LSE-Warwick-UCL - BRAND and nothing more (particularly those who want to IB). I can bet you that teaching quality/student experience at Bristol/Durham is as good as LSE/UCL, etc, but still people would choose LSE,etc. Brand Matters my friend.

    If I was interested in M&A, the only offers I'd reject Lazard NY for would be GS TMT NY and MS M&A NY. Lazard NY would still be a better choice than any of the other IBD groups at MS and GS NY in my opinion. MS Madrid shouldn't even come into this equation at all unless OP has an interest in working in Spain full time.

    Lazard NY is known to have a horrible sweat shop culture though but the exit opps from there are spectacular.

    Of your choices, I think Lazard would be a no brainer. Its extremely strong and prestigious in NY. Rothschild is primarily strong in Europe. And if you plan to stay and build a career in Europe, Rothschild may need strong consideration. MS? They primarily top league tables because they are much bigger than the former two. This is essentially a luxury problem - you can go wrong with none.

    Lazard in New York?! This would not be a difficult decision for me if I was an M&A man.

    Hi guys, has anyone completed the Lazard online application? if so, what sort of information sources did you state for the competency question

    "Please describe a time when you had to analyse a range of information sources in order to draw a conclusion".

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
