    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

    Relatively good work life balance
    People respect junior bankers' time
    Good level of responsibility to contribute on the deal team

    Cons

    Experience can vary depending on the industry group and deal team
    It's still banking...with a lot of the cons typically associated with it

    Advice to Management

    Improve advancement opportunities for analysts so everyone doesn't leave after two years

    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.

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

    Pros

    Nice people
    More bearable lifestyle than bulge brackets
    Good benefits/perks (meals, drinks, events)
    Good compensation for bankers, but doesn't seem to be as good as it used to be
    Some great senior bankers

    Cons

    Growing pains of a rapidly growing company
    ISI acquisition has made us more like a bulge bracket
    No 401k contribution

    Advice to Management

    Focus on lifestyle of junior bankers to make sure that they stick around longer term
    Make sure to comp at high end of street otherwise people will tend toward more established firms
