Hey all, I'm a sophomore (non-ivy target) going through recruiting and I'm really drawn to what the independent advisory banks ("elite boutiques") have to offer in an internship. Out of curiosity, what are the top target schools for Evercore and other EBs? Are they similar to BBs? What else do they look for, and how does recruiting for EBs differ from BBs? Thank you all for any insight!

Hey, I'm currently a senior at a target and I've always been interested in studying at Oxford. I've been accepted to get a masters in sustainability& environment and could eventually get another one in history/philosophy; how will this affect my chances of breaking into IB or PE in New York? * If I'm getting an MBA it's got to be H/W/S*

I've found this website to be immensely helpful throughout college and the beginning of my banking career. I thought I would return the favor by having an informative discussion around the current elite boutique landscape in the U.S. (although EB bankers elsewhere feel free to chime in). I think it's fair to say that EBs are becoming increasingly popular choice for undergrads going into finance, especially at target schools. For context, I'm a former EB analyst who spent two years there before leaving for private equity. My initial thoughts here obviously reflect my experience, but they're

Evercore opened their SA 2021 applications weeks ago and on their online portal it says they will be closing them in May, with interviews commencing in April. For SA 2020 they didn't open their applications until much closer to the summer. I'm pretty concerned about there hyper-accelerated timelines. What are chances of getting in as a non-target? The profiles I see on linkedin are literally all target schools (think HYP, columbia, uchicago, cornell). I'm trying really hard to network a lot with the firm and hope for the best. I wanna know everyone's takes on this accelerated recruiting

Seen a lot of posts lately that consistently rank Evercore as the best EB and even better than most BBs. Want to know what exactly it is about Evercore that makes them so great? Is it because of great MD relationships resulting in more deal-flow, better comp, or just a prestige factor associated with the name? Thanks.

Hi Everyone, I'll be starting full time at Evercore next year and I'm thinking about staying long term. I really enjoyed my internship and loved the people and work, but I'm wondering what the all-in compensation is like after the couple of analyst years. I don't want to miss the boat for exit recruiting, but if the pay scales nicely, I hope to become a career banker. My analyst class (2021) was offered $95,000 base salary + $25,000 signing bonus, and assuming 80% end of year bonus (+$76,000) = $196,000 total compensation. How much does the pay scale for Associates, VP, and MD? I just hoped to

Basically what the title says. I have offers from both and both in NYC. For evercore, I got an offer from their Private Funds Group and the CVP offer is generalist with mostly focused on M&A in HC/C+R I believe. Based on the offer letters, pay is basically the same or pretty much around the same to the point where it doesn't make much of a difference to me. I like the EVR culture better because it fits me more. I guess I'm more curious from a exit ops standpoint so want to know what you guys think...
15 Aug 2020
Did anybody get or knows if people received first round interviews for the accelerated diversity process at Evercore for the 2022 Summer Analyst role?
24 Mar 2021
I know its probably super late for RX (heard they already finished some supers). Is anyone is in the pipeline now? Have all people heard back? What is the class size / makeup looking like.
25 Apr 2021
Can someone enlighten me on exits from this group? I keep hearing it's a good group but how do their analysts exit compared to PJT or HL restructuring? How large is the FT class and where do they usually go?
25 Apr 2020
Anyone here applied to the Evercore Rising Junior Diversity Scholarship this year? If so, does anyone know when we will hear back? Also if anyone went through this process last year and could shed some light that would be great as well. Thanks guys and good luck with recruiting!
14 Aug 2017
I just got a interview for Evercore ISI equity research sales, can someone shed some light on it. What should I expect at the interview?
20 Sep 2017
Hi!!!! First time poster here, all the info from WSO has been realllly helpful for getting me into finance, and I was wondering if I could get some help with a dilemma I've been having :) Senior Year recruiting has been the worst, but after what seemed like endless networking calls and M&I prep, I was able to secure an Analyst gig at Evercore starting Nov 2021 in a high COL city. I was hoping for direct placement into Lev Fin, but I got a generalist position which I guess is also good. I'm not as thrilled as I expected I'd be though, because I also got an offer from the Corporate Venture Fund

Hey guys, prospective intern here interested in Aerospace & Defense IB. Wanted to ask if anyone had any knowledge on which banks are generally considered top in the A&D space. Thanks!
16 Jun 2020
Does anyone have advice for choosing between Evercore NYC vs MS NYC? I'd be a 2022 summer analyst and would be looking to join full time afterwards. My concern is ending up at a bad group at MS whereas I'm basically guaranteed to do M&A at Evercore. Context: I go to a target school.
10 Apr 2021
Whenever I was asked this question, I never gave a bullshit answer. I said that obviously the hours aren't a pro of working in this industry, but its not something that i necessarily mind and it will help me learn a lot. I also brought up my student loan debt and that I really wanted to pay it off. Interested to hear other perspectives on this.
17 Sep 2019
I'm lucky enough to have Full-Time Analyst offers for Investment Banking from both Evercore NYC M&A and PJT NYC M&A. I know I'm splitting hairs here but I'm just wondering if any of you have thoughts if one firm is slightly better positioned in terms of exit opportunities into PE mega-funds (Apollo, Blackstone, Warburg, KKR, TPG, Bain, Carlyle) as well as top MBA programs (Harvard, Stanford, Wharton)? Appreciate any insight!
23 Aug 2019
Can anyone shed some color on Evercore's relatively new group, Activism & Defense? I'm interested in learning about the responsibilities of analysts, exit opportunities, and work-life balance compared to your standard M&A or coverage roles. Thanks!

While we all know Evercore is a good shop in terms of $ value and deal flows, does it really outperform the other shops in terms of exits and analyst quality? Do top kids from H/W go there at all? I know a few kids at both and I don't think the most finance-savvy kids go there. It seems like most people at Evercore M&A either have connections with the senior management or good grades - but other than that nothing really stands out. Again, this is not meant to say it is bad, but there just seems to be a mismatch between its reputation here and what I have seen. The average kids at decent

Monkeys, What are the top groups at Evercore M&A when considering exits, culture, and deal flow (in that order)? As an incoming SA, wanted to get a feel for groups as the placement process has changed (generalist SA with no generalist FT time) and the firm has many smaller, vertical-focused groups rather than broad industry groups (Ex: FIG is split into Insurance, Banks, & FinTech while TMT is split into Tech, Media and Information, & Telecom). Thanks

Hi All, I'm currently an analyst at a EB (EVR / CVP / PJT) and business school has always been something I've wanted to do for various reasons, one of which is the optionality it provides for going abroad (originally from Asia). I know from personal sources that CVP sponsors MBAs, although I'm not sure what the clawback is / how long you have to stay after you come back from the MBA. I've been hearing EVR and LAZ also sponsor, although lesser known - although not from a personal source so not too clear on that. Do people have more visibility into who sponsors / what the terms are for

Hi everyone, I got offers for 2021SA from these three firms. I was just hoping for any info on reputation/culture/compensation FT and which one would you recommend me to take and why? Also, how hard is it to exit to HF/AM from a top ER firm? What's the pay progression in associates? All positions in NY. Thank you for all the help! Sincerely, A confused and lucky monkey
09 Oct 2020
Was wondering if anyone had any information on the full time recruiting process at MF's (BX, KKR, Apollo, TPG, Warburg, etc.) for undergrad students. I'll be at a top EB for my SA stint and, though I will most likely stay for FT, I figured I might as well at least try for a few MF's now since it might give me a leg up come associate recruiting. Any advice on how the recruiting process is structured and on how to do well in any coffee chats/interviews is appreciated. Thanks.

Wondering how Evercore fairs for PE placement in London compared to the bulge bracket banks? Stress this is for London, not US. Afaik their UK business is basically just the old Lexicon business, so wondering if the prestige/exit opps still hold.
06 Aug 2015
Trying to figure out what industry/product focused teams have offices in San Francisco. Particularly interested in bulge brackets and e.boutiques as well as any consumer/retail focus If anyone could add to this list it would be greatly appreciated: Greenhill - advisory (M&A restx) Lazard - healthcare GS - TMT, generalist DB - Tech Barclays - Tech (Menlo Park) Moelis - Tech (Palo Alto) JPM - Tech Needed (in addition to any other groups that the above may cover): Evercore MS BAML CS Perella Weinberg Partners Peter J Solomon

Hi, I'm a rising junior from a semi-target. I'm very interested in Evercore, but Evercore barely hires from our school. I recently found out we have an alum joined Evercore as a Senior Managing Director for a year, and I just cold emailed him. I was super lucky, this MD agreed to grab coffee with me. I'm wondering how should network with him during our coffee chat and get my first-round. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, community!
13 Jul 2017
What about Evercore makes it consistently rank high for employee satisfaction? More lenient hours/more lenient and understanding MDs and management/unique perks or benefits?
08 Sep 2020
Hi All, Just wanted to learn more about Evercore's Restructuring practice. Not a lot of information on WSO that's recent and wanted to learn more about comp, work, rankings, exit opportunities and the like. Thanks!

Hello All, Just for fun, I thought it would be interesting to get everyone's take on the top 10 groups in investment banking considering reputation, dealflow, senior leaders within group, overall prestige, etc. I totally recognize this is subjective and shouldn't be used as a way to make employment decisions. With that said, what are YOUR top 10 groups across BB, EB, MM, etc?

I have a first round interview with Evercore's ISI Equity Research division and was just wondering what to expect. Will they ask about a DCF, the 3 financials, and other typical IB technical questions? Thanks!!

So I've been trying to email alumni at Evercore, but my emails keep getting bounced. I keep getting a response saying: "Recipient address rejected: Access denied". Has anyone else been having this problem? Thanks

Hi everyone, Curious whether anyone has any insight into Evercore's US ECM team? Through a LinkedIn search, very few people pop up in this team and it's mainly senior professionals. Thank you!

And will 2011 be the year of the banker? Rainmaking, as defined by Wikipedia refers to the act of attempting to artificially induce or increase precipitation, usually to stave off drought. This is usually done by cloud seeding, dances, or prayer. But this is Wall Street Oasis, we do a different kind of rain dancing here. Institutional Investor magazine has released their Rainmakers of the Year list and surprise, surprise, the top two came from boutiques. Blair Effron of Centerview topped the list after advising PepsiCo on a $15.5 billion buyback, followed by Antonio Weiss of Lazard, who did
29 Dec 2010
Hey guys, I am looking to get some insight into whether I should start my journey at an IB or HF - I know theres a few threads out there regarding this but would be great to get some opinions on starting at an EB like Evercore particularly vs HF for SA. Would starting at IB be better in terms of exit opps and going to HF later on..more transferable skills etc? Any input would be appreciated
02 Oct 2019
Hey all. I just got notified of 2 offers I have for a summer analyst position at Citi and Evercore. Which would you guys take for a summer analyst role? Obviously, summer analyst leads to FT offer, so this is almost like deciding where to go for FT. Which one has better exit opps after banking? Which one would you guys choose?
16 Jan 2012
Now that Evercore's M&A NYC Analyst class is getting bigger (~50 Analysts) and they are placing Analysts into groups earlier - I was wondering what the top groups at Evercore are considered to be? I'm interested from a deal flow perspective, prestige perspective, and best exit opportunities into PE mega-funds (Blackstone, Apollo, KKR, Warburg, Carlyle, Bain, TPG). Specifically for NYC and specifically for M&A.
23 Aug 2019
I am fairly well acquainted with Evercore NY however, have a connection in the London EVR office. How is the reputation? Is it improving? Does/Can it compute with other BB's/EB's in London/EMEA? Good Exit Opportunities? All input is appreciated.
13 May 2019
Folks - anyone interviewed with Evercore's restructuring group recently? Are they recruiting? I heard they did some phone screens. How was the experience and what kind of questions did they target? Any help will be extremely appreciated!
12 Sep 2014
Hey guys, I wanted to know a little more about exit opportunities out of Evercore's restructuring and M&A groups. I know both are highly regarded, but what is the analyst placement into PE/HF like for each group? Any idea on deal flow over the last year and what the landscape looks like going forward in the next two years? Also, I know that the restructuring group is a lot smaller (roughly 40 bankers vs 360 bankers in M&A), so does that make restructuring more attractive because there are less analysts? Thanks in advance!
10 Nov 2012
I have my offers for summer analyst and I'm struggling to decide. The options are: -Evercore -Barclays IBD -Morgan Stanley Global Capital Markets -BofA (probably my least favorite) Which do you think is best in terms of experience, culture, hours, and exit ops?
