A Good Company in the Midst of Difficult Changes
Senior Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 29, 2018
Third Bridge cultivates good young talent and lets driven motivated people take the lead and take leadership initiatives early in their career. Management is young, cares about their individual teammates, and the company is full of expressive people that make a fun company culture. The downside is that due to a demanding client base and delays in staffing to meet capacity, often times researchers are expected to work longer hours in order to meet project demand. Normal hours are 9-6, but people will sometimes stay until 9pm or later. This would normally be alright given that the company offered good benefits and perks (global office travel, company offsites, good bonus structure), but due to the recent acquisition of a minority stake in the company by a private equity firm, management is slowly rolling back these benefits. Overall, I would still recommend working at the company, but I would note that you should be wary of of promises of perks and benefits that the company offers, as it's likely they could be rolled back.
