    I have been working at Preqin full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I'm in the NYC office (in a sales capacity) so can't speak for London or Singapore, but seems like things might not be too great on the London Research side considering all of the Glassdoor reviews that are negative seem to come from them...(how can you say it is good working hours and thengive 1 star for work-life balance?!?!) Anyway, on our side of the pond everyone is young, hungry and moves fast. Our company is always looking to hire, and people come from a diverse variety of both academic, geographic, and professional backgrounds. Office has no turnover besides 1 or 2 rare cases, and is growing rapidly. Hiring more senior positions and outside people allowing our culture to strengthen and move past our growth stage. Lots of support from senior management, team leaders, great compensation, no strenuous work hours, flexible time, easy to meet projects/goals and deadlines.

    Cons

    A lot of the key functions on research, finance and HR are in London, so sometimes getting pertinent research and data to clients can be lagged based on the time differences. Could imagine research's job could be tedious/monotonous, but you have the opportunity to be published and cited in a wide variety of financial press, which always good to mention on a resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring across all facets of the company, we are truly the best so let's do everything to not lose customers because someone has a better interface or functionality!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Preqin.

    Interview Details

    I went through a phone interview with HR. She will ask you why you want to work there, what you know about the role, pretty standard prep questions. You will then schedule an in person second round interview with two managers who again will ask you about what you currently do, why you want to work there, etc. You should really do your homework on the company and understand their clients. Know the major asset classes covered: PE, Hedge Funds, Real Estate, and Infrastructure. Finally one last interview with the Head of US Operations, which is basically the same interview as number two. I heard back with an offer within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions are not difficult or intended to trick you. They basically want to see how well you mesh with the culture and if you can stay on top of your work which are deadline driven. If you don't have sales experience, show them that you can outgoing and persuasive.   Answer Question
