A stepping stone
Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NY9 June 2019
This is a place to get a foot in the door for anyone looking to jump into the New York job scene however you will come to find quickly that the work itself is far from rewarding or inspiring. The people that you will meet there as a developing professional are fantastic for the most part and you will make a friend at least but again, the overall experience will leave you feeling a bit short-changed. Many of the senior leaders are not friendly and lack personality, similar to a robot (any employee will know who this is). All in all, a solid opportunity however it is one that I encourage all to pass through and do not let the complacency set in, spread those wings and get out there!

terrible culture, basically a college frat
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New York, NY30 May 2019
' management will ask you for advice, but if it's not something they want to hear - they will get defensive and you days there are limited as you are now on their "to-get-rid-of list.

Good company but Management Issues
Desktop Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  New York, NY24 May 2019
Everyone I worked with seemed down to earth but a lot of the people who were in upper management seemed to live in a different world. From the stories of certain individuals its as if they were living the fast life. The head of HR definitely had some issues as I am not sure how she has kept her position. Some of the C-execs definitely need to retire as their personalities seemed unfitting of a professional environment but perhaps they never really liked being there themselves or just thought of the work culture as "highschool".
Pros
They have events, speakers, ok benefits, down to earth employees
Cons
Cranky management?

Great career developer
Product Owner (Former Employee) –  London3 May 2019
Third Bridge is led by a group of people that really look at their business and make it work for their customers. As a start to your career you will learn a lot, coming back mid-career it was great to be able to reinvest in a growing product.

Good first job. Difficult exit opportunities
Research Associate (Former Employee) –  New York18 April 2019
Young company with many social events and intelligent coworkers. Management truly believes in the product but as an employee it is becomes hard to justify the level of devotion required to the company when little exit opportunities exist.

New leadership making changes for change sake
Undisclosed (Former Employee) –  New York, NY8 October 2018
Third Bridge ownership are am amazing group of men who built a company with an amazing product and an amazing team that is doing great work. They were not good business leaders and smartly brought in help from the outside. However, these new leaders are making change for change sake with little regard for change management and looking at what is working. This is ultimately destroying the culture of this successful company.

What once was a great place to work is quickly becoming a case study for what not to do when trying to growing a business.
Pros
drinks and snacks, awesome product, good people
Cons
treat everyone like children, communication, childish behaviors of management

A company that doesn't keep their promises
Analyst (Former Employee) –  London14 August 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.

A Good Company in the Midst of Difficult Changes
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NY29 May 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, UK12 March 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

Research Analyst (Former Employee) –  London6 March 2018
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, NY12 February 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, NY29 November 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 London24 October 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, NY16 October 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.
