    I have been working at Mergermarket full-time (more than 5 years)


    Very flexible work-life bonus more than average newsrooms, travel to conferences almost as much as you like, casual office environment, vibrant staff, great bonuses and benefits including 20 prorated vacation days, only work Monday-Friday, can move up quickly if you work hard and make yourself standout with great ideas as management often changes in 2 years (few people are lifers)


    Lack of reporters with senior experience, too many entry-level reporters, very gossipy, raises are abysmal, often will promote with no extra pay at the time of promotion, like to get more work out of you for less pay, promotes based on likability and not experience,

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Mergermarket.

    Interview Details

    The employer had two staff interview me, one after the other. One manager seemed approachable but the other didn't. Trust your instinct and don't jump at a position with this company if you feel like you would not want to work for this type of management. Next step, if they like you, they assign a written test where you call two people at the company who pretend they are a CEO and a banker. Write-up the story and submit it.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't recall specific questions that stood out at me in the interview itself. More of the company's focus is on whether they think you could write about finance, and then they test that with the written part of the interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Definitely negotiate upwards because they will try to lowball you by several thousand. Might not be worth working for them if you feel the salary is too low for your liking.
