“I really value that Evercore is now one of the top firms in its bracket, but we still have a lot of space to grow and develop — something that is often not the case in bigger banks. The firm is very ambitious about breaking into new areas in finance and expanding into new geographies. It’s exciting to be a part of a firm that has such an expansive mentality at every level and to know that as a junior, I’ll be part of driving that change as my career and expertise progresses."
“One of the amazing things about Evercore is the collaborative working environment – regardless of seniority, we encourage everyone to contribute to team projects and trust that they’ll add value. The fresh perspective and energy that early talent brings to the team is also highly appreciated across the business. In some places you are made aware of the difference between you and senior people – here, you’re appreciated as an individual and there is a high level of respect for everyone.”
'When I started at Evercore. I was impressed by how much my team encouraged me to join client meetings and expand my learning. Looking back now I realise how important this was for my personal development. Because of the company structure and smaller team sizes you get huge exposure to seniors and more variety in your work, compared to being part of a larger team: requiring flexibility and a broad skill set. That is why there is a good balance of people from different academic backgrounds. including graduates with arts and humanities degrees."
