Working in investment banking is not an easy career path. The hours are long, the spreadsheets seem endless, but the rewards can be worth it. And choosing a career at one of the best investment banks to work for can make all the difference.
To help make your decision, Vault.com just released the Vault Banking 50 which lists the best investment banks to work for in 2018. Deciding factors include the top issues facing bankers working in the industry today – work/life balance, culture, training, compensation and overall prestige.
Goldman Sachs & Co. tops the list of the best investment banks to work at for the second year in a row. The bank’s extensive history on Wall Street continues as one of the top deal makers and their stance on work/life balance continues to be progressive comparative to their peers.
Evercore Partners moved up two spots this year to fall just short of Goldman Sachs. Although not as large as Goldman, Evercore employees view the bank as the “leading, most respected boutique” and “pretty much the strongest name in the industry”.
