    I have been working at Evercore Partners full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Evercore is a great place to start a career as an investment banking analyst or associate. They offer relatively higher compensation, a collegial work environment, high profile deals, and more responsibility on projects.

    Cons

    The company is only 15+ years old and still growing its partner ranks through external hires. It will be telling to see how it develops its internal talent.

    The Mexico City office needs rehabilitation and integration with Evercore global

    Current Employee - Analyst  in  Mexico City (Mexico)
    Current Employee - Analyst in Mexico City (Mexico)

    I have been working at Evercore Partners full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to leading economic thinkers in Mexico. Very intelligent coworkers. Learned about public finance in Mexico.

    Cons

    No chance to interact with other offices/projects worldwide. The Mexican company Protego was acquired by Evercore but they basically just changed the logo. Most people still refer to the company as Protego.

    One HR person for the entire office. This means no training/professional development. The HR rep is strictly for hiring/benefits.

    No documentation/knowledge management/project management processes. This means every project starts from scratch. Lots of brain drain because people leave. Habitually late on deadlines (part of Mexico in general). We were actually calling former employees for help. People's idea of knowledge management is printing a prior project and putting it on a bookshelf.

    Unreal amount of time in the office. People don't care what you get done, they just want to see butts in seats. Work-from-home/flex time is unheard of. If you have to finish something for a Monday deadline they ask you to come in on Saturday instead of doing it on your laptop from anywhere.

    Barebones IT resources (i.e. we make diagrams all the time but don't have MS Visio, we don't have MS project). This is not an NGO and we could afford to have this software.

    No upward mobility. Analysts are undergrads, some have master's. Then they all leave for a PhD or go work for the government. You can't stay and work your way up to a management position - there are no "middle positions."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You acquired Protego but haven't done anything to make it better. Sometimes it feels like we are just spinning our wheels in Mexico. Swap some managers so that there is more cross-collaboration and help us feel included in the larger organization. Not exaggerating when I say that all that happened was that they changed the logo. I have no idea what people do in other Evercore offices worldwide.

    Former Employee - M&A Analyst in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at Evercore Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High-profile M&A assignments, prestigious (and improving) brand recognition. Still small enough to build true relationships with SMDs/Partners and learn from some of the best/most respected senior bankers on Wall St. Pays better than the big banks.

    Cons

    Typical i-banking lifestyle if not worse (because senior people count on you more). Minimum training and HR practice (although improving). Not as recognizable outside of the finance community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to invest more into your jr. people, especially associates to help them grow.
