    I have been working at Evercore Partners full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Evercore is a great place to start a career as an investment banking analyst or associate. They offer relatively higher compensation, a collegial work environment, high profile deals, and more responsibility on projects.

    Cons

    The company is only 15+ years old and still growing its partner ranks through external hires. It will be telling to see how it develops its internal talent.

    I worked at Evercore Partners full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    High-profile M&A assignments, prestigious (and improving) brand recognition. Still small enough to build true relationships with SMDs/Partners and learn from some of the best/most respected senior bankers on Wall St. Pays better than the big banks.

    Cons

    Typical i-banking lifestyle if not worse (because senior people count on you more). Minimum training and HR practice (although improving). Not as recognizable outside of the finance community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to invest more into your jr. people, especially associates to help them grow.

    Pros

    Great mentors, high level exposure to senior management, active participation encouraged, working in teams, ability to take on additional responsibility above your current level, incredible learning environment

    Cons

    Late hours, stressful deadlines, some senior level employees aren't always considerate, always need to be responsive on your mobile device and be prepared to cancel prior engagements for last minute fire drills, 5 pm Friday staffing assignments, 6-7 day a week work schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Compensation is decent if you know what to ask for from the beginning - salary with overtime, bonus minimum, etc.
    Benefits are competitive+

    Cons

    - EXTREMELY poor HR department though recent changes relating to HR management shows some promise. Change is slow.
    - Fear of retribution prevents many employees from reporting unfair treatment or other issues.
    - Very poor communication from the top to the bottom.
    - Senior management at Evercore expects personal work to be completed by their assistants. This ranges from very small tasks to large projects dealing with family and outside interests. This work is sometimes personally compensated by the individual manager around the holidays but often times it isn't. Again, fear of retribution prevents many employees from tackling this problem despite being overtaxed and ethically conflicted.

    Evercore Partners needs to be more respectful to its employees.

    Pros

    Evercore provides the opportunity for its employees to reap the benefits of both a lucrative income, and the chance to work with, and for, some very bright and influential individuals.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, some members of the companies middle-management treated lower-rung employees with consistent disrespect. This often made the work-environment a rather uncomfortable place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The disrespectful way in which middle-management treated some employees was not appropriate, nor did it reflect the image of class, quality, and integrity which the company strives to exhibit.

    I worked at Evercore Partners

    Pros

    Prestiige of working at a mid town boutique investment bank. Compensation better than average.

    Cons

    If you are not a partner, you are treated like fodder. This is especially true for the support staff. At least the analyst have a chance at becoming a revenue producer, the support staff are treated like a changeable expense and often are. Beware unless you are a senior level banker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a hard concept to acknowledge but there is work life balance for the support staff.
