My two cents: Evercore and PJT are very similar in a lot of respects. Both pay top of the street, great cultures, solid exits. PJT is that cool new shop on the block and brings with it that exclusive feel (purely by function of smaller analyst class) and slightly better work life balance. Evercore is more established and has much stronger deal flow but that obviously results in slightly longer hours (but still better than rest of the street). Overall, don't think you can go wrong with either, I'd pick whichever one I like the people more at.

Pay is equal, deal flow is relatively equal (in terms of number of people, Evercore does more deals but is also 5x the headcount), prestige and placement is relatively equal, areas of strength are different and culture is different.

With that said, you should probably pick based on your areas of interest and your fit based on who you've met. Everything else is too similar, so wanting to work with one group or another, a larger or smaller bank, should likely be your main factor.

Deal Flow - EVR
Brand - EVR
Exit Opps - Push (EVR is better in terms of raw representation at places but pound for pound PJT competes)
Pay - Push
Culture - Push

Comes down to if you want to be at one of the most established boutiques or somewhere that is new and establishing itself (can look at that as + or -) where you can have more of an impact but still has top placement.

I would say PJT because Taubman was very highly regarded at MS and was able to pull many of MS's top bankers to his firm, not to mention Blackstone's former bankers. But for you, as an analyst, the only thing that matters is the exit opps. If you have any analyst friends, the best thing to do is have them ask the head hunters they are working with how PJT is perceived and how PJT analysts do in recruiting.

I would go for PJT, they are a rising firm and pushing a lot to get on top of the league tables. This will reflect on your experience and exit opps
