    Great place to get hands-on finance exposure. Management team is highly respectable.

    Pros

    Working at Evercore has provided opportunities to contribute to a wide range of transactions. The firm culture is excellent, especially relative to other firms in the industry.

    Cons

    The firm is somewhat inflexible in advancement timing, and tends to only promote people after a set period of time in each position.

    Pros

    There can be excellent work life balance but that depends on who you work for. They have nice perks like a cafe, opportunity for a bonus, and holiday parties and gifts. Health benefits are great, average vacation and holiday package.

    Cons

    Depending on who you work for being an EA actually means being a personal assistant and doing personal favors, returning library books, buying things on ebay for someones family, researching flower arrangements, etc, in addition to all the meeting scheduling, travel, and heavy calendaring. A lot of EA's in my department work heavy overtime due to this. Consider learning to exercise good boundaries because you might be pushed beyond reasonable limits. This is also the first place I've ever worked where assistants feel guilty stepping away or taking lunches, which does not seem too healthy. There is also a heavy gossip culture amongst assistants, watch out for that.

    I worked at Evercore Partners full-time

    Pros

    generally nice people (except for a couple of the industry groups), collaborative corporate culture with emphasis on culture building among the employee base (relative to peers)

    Cons

    standard drawbacks associated with investment banking (unpredictable hours, low value-add grunt work); firm has been expanding a bit too quickly from a headcount perspective which as diluted the quality of people a bit

    I worked at Evercore Partners full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, comradery, sense of belonging to a top-notch team. Good leadership at both the investment bank and Evercore ISI, the equity research, S&T arm.

    Cons

    Evercore ISI's culture of buying up and bolting together top sector teams from the street means there's little interest in promoting from within - not the best for morale of junior members and for talent retention. Lots of younger talent has left.

    Advice to Management

    Evercore ISI's build-out stage is complete - concentrate more on developing, retaining, promoting, and paying talent internally.
