Life at Evercore

Evercore is one the world’s fastest growing independent investment banking advisory firms. Over the last 10 years, we’ve grown revenues at greater than a 20% compounded rate, established a truly global presence with 28 offices worldwide, and continued to expand our sector coverage and product capabilities.

Our continued success provides opportunities for career progression and mobility within the firm, and some of our most successful senior professionals began their careers at Evercore. Evercore is deeply committed to the ongoing professional development of its employees. In fact, Evercore was recently ranked #2 and #3 respectively, by Vault in its 2019 annual rankings of investment banks for its Formal and Informal Training Programs.

Our widely-praised training framework involves ongoing development at all stages of our employees’ professional careers. While we offer formal training to our employees depending on the nature of their position and seniority, we also believe that the most meaningful aspects of an employee’s development come through informal on-the-job training and ongoing employee engagement, including through extensive mentorship. In addition, all of our employees benefit from a comprehensive evaluation process, designed to provide them with the feedback necessary for all aspects of their professional development.

Our primary distinguishing asset is our talent. We attract, nurture, and retain professionals who deliver the highest quality advice with unrivaled client service. We are defined by a set of core values which drives how we run our business; we hold ourselves to the highest standards of professional integrity.

Our ethos of partnership and teamwork ensures that we learn from each other. We do not function as individuals within a larger machine; rather, our relatively flat structure enables us to exchange ideas, collaborate and work successfully as a unified firm. To that end, we host employee town halls at a firm-wide level, designed to provide employee access to senior leadership and input into organizational initiatives.

From the outset, junior hires work alongside senior bankers on industry-defining deals. Evercore’s hands-on approach makes the Firm a unique and extraordinary place to begin your career. These cultural and employee-focused attributes create a truly unique working environment and have resulted in an exceptionally high retention rate.

Evercore has some of the industry’s most highly respected bankers who bring a wealth of industry and client-relationship experience. Our proven track record, flat organizational structure, and hands-on learning model make our platform very attractive to junior professionals.
We are dedicated to helping our clients achieve superior results through trusted, independent, and innovative advice on matters of strategic significance to boards of directors, management teams, and shareholders. We advise on mergers and acquisitions, strategic shareholder advisory, restructurings, and capital structure. Evercore also advises clients on raising public and private capital, and we deliver equity research and sales as well as agency trading execution. In addition, the Company provides wealth and investment management services to high net worth and institutional investors.

At Evercore, we understand the importance of ensuring our employees are satisfied with their professional experience. We are proud of our #2 overall Vault ranking and top 5 rankings in numerous Vault “Quality of Life” categories, including Firm Leadership, Formal Training and Informal Training, Business Outlook, Satisfaction and Vacation Policies. Evercore encourages employees to give feedback, and incorporates that feedback in its assessment of employee satisfaction and management of Evercore’s operations. For example, we have improved our flexible work arrangement policies in response to recommendations from our employees.

We believe that a crucial component of our employees’ satisfaction is our commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle. Evercore offers all of its employees the opportunity to participate in EverWELL, our wellness program. EverWELL is designed to promote health education and encourage our employees to take a mindful approach to their overall well-being. Through EverWELL’s internal and external partnerships, we offer various resources and seminars related to all aspects of healthy living, including a focus on employees’ health, welfare, nutrition, stress management and financial wellness.

In addition, we offer a range of health and other benefits to our employees. Our benefits plan is designed to provide competitive and comprehensive benefits while maintaining a program that considers individual needs. Among other things, we offer our eligible employees:

  • Paid holidays, vacation days, personal days and sick days;
  • Paid parental leave;
  • Flexible work arrangements;
  • Back-up child care;
  • Paid marriage and bereavement leave;
  • Medical, dental, prescription drug and vision insurance;
  • Life and disability insurance;
  • Retirement benefits; and
  • Commuter benefits, health club membership discounts and other corporate benefits.

Finally, we are also proud of our commitment to achieving diversity in the workplace. We have benefitted over the years in employee recruitment from our Diversity Initiatives and partnerships with external diversity organizations. Internally, our Women’s Council has been a valuable resource for creating positive organizational change. We believe that diversity of experience and background improves our organizational culture and social construct. Our commitment to diversity was recognized by Vault, with a #2 ranking in Overall Diversity and Diversity for Women in the last two years’ surveys.

    Mergers & AcquisitionsLondon

    Evercore bankers advise clients across industries in domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions, including, but not limited to, corporate mergers, tender offers, purchase of assets and LBOs.

    Private Capital AdvisoryLondon

    Evercore's Private Capital Advisory (PCA) team advises managers of private asset (private equity, private debt, real estate, infrastructure, etc.) seeking to recapitalize or liquidate their assets through a privately negotiated transaction – fund sales, asset refinancing and fund recapitalizaitons. The PCA team typically provides advice encompassing pricing analysis, recommendations on process, structuring alternatives and contract negotiation through the transfer and closing. Clients benefit from the team’s close collaboration with Evercore’s strategic advisory bankers, leveraging their broad and deep sector expertise.

    Private Funds GroupLondon

    Evercore's Private Funds Group (PFG) provides comprehensive, global advisory services on capital raising for select sponsors. Our clients include general partners raising capital for private markets investments including private equity, private debt, and real assets strategies.

    Equity Capital MarketsLondon

    The team assists clients across the full spectrum of equity capital markets (“ECM”) including IPOs, rights issues / placings, sell-downs, spin-offs / demergers and convertibles / other derivatives.

    The team acts as an Independent Advisor to its clients on ECM transactions, meaning that it is focused purely on giving advice and does not provide underwriting services or equities sales and trading. Integrated investment banks which act as underwriters can have conflicts between their corporate clients on one hand and their institutional equity buy-side clients or internal interests on the other (such as where to price shares being sold, the optimal deal size and structure, negotiation of fees and terms of an underwriting agreement, which investors to focus marketing efforts on, who should receive share allocations in a deal etc.). One of the roles of an Independent Advisor is to manage these conflicts and remain the client’s advocate throughout a transaction.

    The team focuses on early preparation of companies prior to a transaction and assists in the appointments of underwriting banks and other advisors, including advice on selecting the optimal candidates as well as negotiations of fees and terms of engagement on behalf of clients. The team oversees the execution phase of the transaction, ensuring best performance from the underwriting banks and giving independent views on all key areas (including market conditions, timing, investor targeting, tactics, structuring, pricing and allocations) as well as general problem solving.

    The team typically works in conjunction with Evercore sector teams on transactions, who focus more on a client’s equity story and market positioning or in some instances will be running an M&A process either requiring an equity raise for funding or as an alternative to an IPO.

    Debt AdvisoryLondon

    Our Debt Advisory team impartially guides borrowers, investors, and creditors on how to structure and raise capital, without any deal or market bias. We evaluate all of our client’s options across markets to optimize financing terms.
