Blackstone and Evercore have again ranked very well in another set of investment bank ratings. The folks at Wall Street Oasis collected data from employees of the world’s top investment banks and have been releasing their rankings on various metrics.

Investment bank management rated in four areas

The website found that Blackstone and Evercore ranked at the top of the list for best-paying investment banks, while Evercore won in employee promotions. Wall Street Oasis’ latest list is about management at the major investment banks.

They broke down this particular set of ratings into four categories: communication, teamwork, leadership and competence.

In the first category, the website asked about “communications from management about important issues and changes.”

Blackstone topped the list with a score of 99.8, while Robert W. Baird came in second with a score of 99.3. In third place was Evercore with a score of 99. Harris Williams & Co. was in fourth place with a score of 98.
