    I worked at Evercore Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The office was nice and many of the people were wonderful, intelligent and interesting to work with.

    Cons

    When the department was running on a tight budget, much of the cutting came in the form of lower level employee bonuses. There were also a few "bad apples" in the group. There also wasn't much upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Much of the turnover was salary driven. Not getting an appropriate bonus, or raise can lead to resentment. Maybe that could have been staved off with internal promotions instead of bringing in outsiders.

    I worked at Evercore Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smaller deal teams, huge deal flow (closed 5 deals in 2 year period), great access & relationship with the senior heads of my group and client facing work

    Cons

    Since being there, I think Evercore has grown too quickly - dysfunctional admin, larger deal teams, disintegrating value prop to analysts

    Advice to Management

    be very cautious of how many junior resources you are hiring. getting the reputation of not providing enough work (and high quality, modeling work) to analysts

    Pros

    Research is among the top 5. Those that remain from ISI have done well. mid level management good people. it is all about the Institutional Investor vote. Nothing else matters.

    Cons

    Ralph Schlosstein treats ISI like a dog. Never seen a more haughty, obnoxious human being. Gives Donald Trump a run for his money. Really made me want to puke every time he came around.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating non partners like crap.
