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

    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.

    Pros

    Great culture and people
    Learn strong technical skills
    Lean deal teams
    Opportunity to learn from highly respective senior bankers with years of experience

    Cons

    Generalist program is not set up well as hybrid between small boutique bank and transitioning to large bank, industry group program. Generalist program is a great opportunity if it functioned the way it was supposed to. Although not disimilar to other banks, you work many hours and often have to cancel plans last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Work to achieve a well functioning generalist program as I think this is a great opportunity for junior banker if run well. Create a "Saturday" rule as has become standard in the industry.

    Pros

    Excellent culture with the opportunity to get a lot of really good live deal experience and interaction with senior professionals. Lack of bureaucracy of larger banks.

    Cons

    Difficult to switch between groups, lack of HR policies for career development / continued learning. Company is really structured to serve partners rather than to develop employees. Comp and exit ops are good though, so few junior bankers really complain.
