The LHCb experiment at the LHC has been the world's premier laboratory for studying quark-flavor-changing processes since 2011. Such processes are highly sensitive to contributions from as-yet-unknown particles, e.g. supersymmetric particles, even those that are too massive to produce at the LHC. I will discuss the status of these searches, including some intriguing anomalies. In addition, I will present some recent studies of exotic hadron spectroscopy in heavy-flavor decays. Planned future upgrades and the resulting physics prospects will also be discussed, including our plans to process the full 5 terabytes per second of LHCb data in real time in the next LHC run.
