Evercore offers full-time exposure and responsibility at an intern level

5.0 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship was the level of exposure I had to senior employees of the firm and the amount of real, hands on, work that I was given. Furthermore, Evercore has an amazing culture that allows one to feel comfortable in a traditionally high-stress industry.

Downers

There was nothing I disliked about the internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

Evercore is the type of firm that will require you to be able to work hard, handle multiple projects at once, and, as a smaller firm, require you to take full responsibility for all of your work. At the same time, the firm does an amazing job of making you a part of the firm's "family" through their mentor programs and numerous firm events

Sample Interview Questions

In one of my interviews, we were given a case of someone who recently inherited two businesses and was looking to make a sale of one of the businesses. We were given some information on both businesses and the business owner's preferences and were told to evaluate which business they would want to sell and why.

4.5 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The training was fantastic. I learned more in a few weeks than I learned in years at school. I felt very prepared to hit the desk. Everyone in the firm, from Analysts to Senior Managing Directors, really wants you to learn and will take significant time out of their busy day just to sit down with you and teach you something. The culture of the firm is fantastic. Everyone at all levels of the firm is extremely friendly and extremely respectful.

Downers

The groups can be a bit segregated. Sometimes the work is a bit slow to build up at the beginning.

Advice to Potential Interns

If you love to work with very nice, very smart, and very educational individuals and work on high profile, interesting deals, Evercore is the place for you. It isn't as "fratty" as some other banks (largely because our Sales and Trading group is so small), but I think this translates positively in that people are considerate and are trying to work hard and do a good job not trying to just keep up appearances.

Would You Recommend

Yes

rare combination of great deal experience and phenomenal firm culture. probably the best experience you'll have in M&A

4.3 of 5 stars

New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

transaction experience, great culture, peer mentorship, senior exposure, bounty of firm social events / coworker bonding

Downers

it is in banking after all, so you won't be able to escape the rough hours and mundane aspects of the job. but with that understanding, the general attitude towards work (no busy work, little face time, general mentality that coworkers are people and not 'assets' that appears to be sparse across wall street) ameliorates those factors to a level i found more than bearable

Advice to Potential Interns

if you are interested in M&A at all, make this your top choice. if you define the traditional tradeoff of banking as learning experience / career value versus lifestyle, this is a firm will almost certainly put you far above and to the right of the rest of wall street

Sample Interview Questions

- walk me through your resume

- why banking

- why evercore

- lots of technicals (for analyst level: three valuation methodologies, valuation multiples, DCF, accounting, enterprise value concepts, cash flow concepts, and others based on what you have on your resume)

Advice to Management

honestly, not much. from a relative perspective, compensation is already at the top of the street, but from absolute perspective can always be better, especially given all the recent positive momentum at other banks. understand they are just playing catch up but

Would You Recommend
