    I have been working at Mergermarket

    Pros

    Learn and write about startups and Fortune 500 enterprises
    Investigative journalism techniques often employed
    Nice work-life balance
    Interesting and worldly colleagues
    Opportunities to travel and work internationally

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than those of competitors
    Bonuses are modest
    The Financial Times Group sold Mergermarket in early 2014 so lost a great owner and news partner
    New owner is a private equity firm and it is unclear when or to whom Mergermarket will be sold again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mergermarket puts out a great product thanks to the hard work of a lot of smart, dedicated people. Top-to-bottom, the company has many stellar workers. I enjoy working here.

    Interview Details

    When I hired people, we really just wanted to see that you generally wanted to work at Mergermarket, that you wanted any job in the world as long as it paid you money.
