    Pros

    PitchBook is great because the people are great. Nearly everyone on every team is accommodating, sharp and dedicated to the company. Most of the team is young and exceptionally talented which translates to a constantly engaging work environment. If you are looking for a company to launch your career, gain invaluable experience, work with an amazing team and be professionally challenged, PitchBook is it.
    Three important things to know when considering a role at PitchBook:
    1. Your colleagues will be for you. PitchBook, across all teams, is hugely collaborative and everyone is willing to help, teach and challenge each other.
    2. Your work will make a difference. Admittedly, some roles are more mundane than others but because the company continues to grow rapidly, there is always something to do. Many teams have established career paths and for most employees, the opportunity is what you make it. One of my favorite PB stories is of a colleague who in 3 years time, created a new department and continues to grow a team under her.
    3. The culture cannot be beat. Although the company culture continues to evolve, you can still count on having fun at work. The management team has put in a ton of effort into keeping their teams connected and engaged. You can plan on regular company events, impromptu gatherings and team happy hours.

    Cons

    PitchBook continues to grow rapidly and it is no surprise that one of the biggest challenges is scaling. The company growth goals are aggressive and at times this means there is too much to do without adequate support. I fully believe that as the management team grows and key positions are filled, issues like communication, professional development and internal resources will be addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Y'all are awesome and make working at PitchBook a positive experience. Keep doing what you are doing and leading well.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at PitchBook.

    Interview

    Horrible experience. On the phone interview, the recruiter was an hr and a half late, but I was nice enough and waited till the recruiter was free to talk to me. A week later the recruiter emailed me to come into the office for an in person interview, I responded to her email 3 times to let her know my time availability, I didnt hear back from her till a week and a half later. That following week I came in for the in person interview. First round was with two employees on the research team, the interview was about 30 minutes. I was supposed to have a second interview with the director of research right after but the recruiter told me the director got stuck in a meeting and I had to come in another day for a follow up interview. I did not hear from the recruiter till a week later and she told me they decided to go with another candidate. I think the whole interview process was total BS especially when I know I was well qualified for this entry level position. The company probably just wanted to hire someone with less experience so they can low ball them on their salary.

    Complete waste of time, the recruiters are unprofressional and unorganized. Do not bother wasting your time applying to this company
