    I have been working at Evercore Partners (More than a year)

    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

    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.
