- “While hours are long, senior deal team members work hard to provide the most immersive experience, while also being respectful of interns' time and effort.”
- “I had time during weekends to do what I liked. Also, there's no facetime culture, so when I don't have work to do, I can go home. Also, you can go home in the evening to work from home if you still have work. Most important thing is to get the job done”
- “IB does not have the best quality of life; however, I feel the company did a good job within those constraints with limited need for facetime and helpful teammates.”
- “Culture was definitely genuine, kind, and smart people. People were also very willing to teach/mentor the interns, and I never felt like I couldn't ask questions. There was also no face time culture. Most Evercore teams seemed to transition to WFH after dinner time, so I never felt pressured to stay late. Usually the interns would stay later though if they wanted access to the monitors. If I ever stayed later than 9-10PM it was because I was doing work for my teams and they were also staying later.”
Getting Hired Here
- “Out of the interview processes I had gone through, Evercore had the most technically rigorous interview process, and I thought that their interview questions were the most interesting and challenging.”
- “The interviews of Evercore are special because they don't just pull questions from the M&I 400 or ask simple concepts from the Rosenbaum guide either. They ask unique questions that test understanding on a slightly higher level and I believe that their standards of choosing applicants was very high in efficacy.”
- “Evercore did not require me to meet with tens of bankers over coffee chats, like some other banks. It was a relatively low-touch process but still always had an idea of where I stood with the firm.”
- “Interviews were some of the most difficult I had. They really test that you understand the technical concepts beyond memorizing answers. After completing the internship, it makes sense that the recruiting is more rigorous because you really skip over the basic concepts during training and get in-depth with DCF/merger model/LBO.”
