Evercore is a firm that offers unparalleled career development and analyst-level responsibilities and tasks

5.0 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

- Amount of responsibility given as a summer analyst (at times was staffed as the sole analyst on the deal)
- Unparalleled mentorship
- Flat organization structure in the sense that you really got close to everyone that you worked with (+ being able to interact one on one with individuals higher-up in the organization)
- Great in-house training during the first week of the internship

Downers

- Because the firm is growing, there were at times when I wasn't staffed on as many projects as I would have liked to be on

Advice to Potential Interns

Evercore is honestly a phenomenal place to be at both during the summer internship experience and post-graduation. The organization has a very flat structure and the mentorship program (both formal and informal) is unparalleled. This is evident in not only Evercore's strong first week in-house training, but also in the time and effort that your seniors put in helping develop you. Additionally, I think it is hard to find a place in which you would be given as much responsibility (both in terms of slide decks and modeling) as Evercore.

Would You Recommend

Excellent experience, generous compensation, very manageable hours.

The deal teams were truly lean and I was given plenty of responsibility. There was also ample mentoring. I also really enjoyed getting to know the other summer associates. We all grew close working together in the "fishbowl".

Downers

Unpredictability of work load was the most challenging aspect, but this is generally true at any investment bank.

Advice to Potential Interns

Speak with as many people at the firm as possible before applying. Evercore has a distinct culture vs. other investment banks. You'll want to make sure you can see yourself working there.

Would You Recommend

Yes

A complete and fully immersive 10 weeks as a full time Associate in Restructuring.

Uppers

The best aspect of the internship was the fact that I did not feel like an intern. You are given live deals and expected to run them like a full time associate. The experience is real and as a result you learn a great deal and have a perfect understanding of what life as a full time associate will be like.

Downers

Training is for general investment banking (M&A) and thus the first few days of the internship are not as accretive to restructuring associates as they are for M&A associates.

Advice to Potential Interns

Meet the people. I had a wonderful experience in restructuring and that was largely due to the people.

Advice to Management

It would be great to get maybe an afternoon or half day at the beginning of the training program that focused on restructuring.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best boutique M&A investment bank on the street

Uppers

Great culture, good people, very enriching deal experience for those who are willing to take on work.

Downers

Long and unpredictable hours (as to be expected from investment banking).

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are interested in investment banking and want to work in M&A, Evercore is the top shop.

Advice to Management

Weekend policy that was being implemented could be very helpful to reduce stress from overworking.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great exposure and learning experience with great people

Menlo Park, CA | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

People at the firm are smart, driven, and nice. Summer analysts were ramped up quickly and given exposure through meaningful work.

Downers

Unpredictable hours, which is a part of the job

Advice to Potential Interns

Try to get a feeling of the culture as well as the type of work you will be doing.

Would You Recommend

Yes

If you want to pursue investment banking, you want to pursue it at Evercore.

The people made the internship. Everyone was extremely bright, friendly, and willing to help whenever needed. The environment created thus was one that was not competitive at all, but rather extremely collaborative. The interns and full-times look out for each other, which I think is a huge key to success and enjoying your job.

Downers

The hours of banking are never good, but Evercore's were still better than the majority of major bulge brackets and almost all boutiques.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be sure to have a strong technical background for interviews, but the on-the-job training will get everyone to the same level.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Outstanding experience with an excellent firm

The people at the firm - full time employees are invested in teaching interns and ensuring that they succeed.

Downers

Similar to many jobs in the industry, you work unpredictable and sometimes long hours.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are a "people" person, intellectually curious, and motivated to succeed come to Evercore, it is a great firm and you will fit in well here.

Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. There were a lot of intern events that were very enjoyable and everyone seemed to take an interest in my development.

Downers

The hours were long at times but that is the nature of the industry and I expected that.

Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you are willing to work hard. If you can handle the industry lifestyle (long hours, etc.) Evercore is by far the best to land at.
