    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Pros

    Great work culture, perhaps the best I have ever encountered. Overtime is generous and you'll be doing a lot of it

    Cons

    Work you like a Hebrew slave, no matter what you position is... You'll work harder than you will ever work in your life. Period. No option of growth, so get the job you want when you get in and the pay you want.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people or understand how to create an atmosphere where your employees aren't working 60 hour work weeks as administrative support.

    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

    As the firm starts to grow, hierarchy and bureaucracy are starting to show

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the culture
