Current Employee - Administrative/Executive Assistant in New York, NY
Current Employee - Administrative/Executive Assistant in New York, NY
Approves of CEO

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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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