A company that doesn't keep their promises
Analyst (Former Employee) –  LondonAugust 14, 2018
Poor management, boring job, pay is low for the hours they expect you to work. They promise a lot, but hardly ever deliver. Promotions and secondments get delayed on a regular basis.

Employed as 1099 and independent contractor. Work requirements highly dependent on customer base. Everyone I have had contact with at ThirdBridge have been collaborative and a pleasure to work with.

A Good Company in the Midst of Difficult Changes
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 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.

glorified call centre
Telephone Researcher (Former Employee) –  London, UKMarch 12, 2018
Really mind numbing work. I think I've lost brain cells just thinking about the time I spent at Third Bridge. Only go if desperate for money. Not for the faint of heart.
Pros
they don't lock you in the dungeon at night
Cons
having to talk on the phone to strangers for 8 hours straight and then being told you suck

Odd for a company's job description to focus more on what you would not get from a role, than what you would.
At least they are highlighting what your experience will be!
Come away with less than you went there with

RESEARCH ANALYST II & PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 12, 2018
hours are stupid long. if you want to be a cold call monkey, this job's for you. otherwise, get a real job, not a commission-based sales job that's really just facilitating insider trading.

Good First Job, Solid Colleagues, Mind-Numbing Work, Limited Career Progression and Skills Development
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 29, 2017
The work itself is focused on juggling internal and external stakeholders. Client relationship management is placed entirely in your hands and you are effectively selling to both clients (who are known to be unresponsive) and the experts (who are often uninterested in divulging information to investment analysts for free). Overall, it is the nature of the work that leads a lot of intelligent and driven employees to dissatisfaction and eventually to move on. At the end of the day, the company does a fairly good job of creating a nurturing environment for those that take advantage of the opportunities.

Fun work place but middle management leaves a lot to be desired
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  London, Greater LondonOctober 24, 2017
A day at work is absolutely what you make of it and you have the autonomy to explore the areas most of interest once competent at the job e.g. client development; account management; training and development etc. The middle management are yes-men though and seem to lack vision, direction and real purpose though.

Great place to work
N/A (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 16, 2017
One thing that is great about and certainly molds to culture of Third Bridge is that it hires almost all employees out of college, creating a unique and fun culture.

Stepping Stone Job
Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 9, 2017
First 3 months are difficult but based on performance things get better. Begin network and develop a strategy for exit early on as it is unlikely you'll wish to stay longer than 1 year.

Great place to get started- level out fairly quickly
Project Manager/Research Analyst II (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 22, 2017
great place to get a footing into finance and the culture, but can become stagnant rather quickly (2 year time frame). Teaches you how to pitch/sell and work the phone.

Young, fast-paced, dynamic company
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 8, 2017
Great place to start your career. Fast advancement if you're good at your job. Bonus makes up more and more of your total income as you advance. Job can occasionally be monotonous. Lots of time on the phone recruiting executives into your network for your projects. Cool clients.

Not a great place to work
Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 26, 2017
If calling random people, inside and outside of a "professional network" isn't your thing. They will take you in a room and give you an ultimatum. Hit their "target" or get fired
