    One of the greatest learning experiences of my life.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at RiskMetrics


    The people were brilliant, the opportunities open to all employees who were willing to put in the work to make it happen. The company had a good vacation policy, an emphasis on importance of the family in an employee's life.


    Sometimes work/life balance was pretty out of whack. Salaries were far below competitive opportunities in a similar space.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at RiskMetrics in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviews and informal lunches with future colleagues. I initially reached them by meeting someone who worked them at a networking event. We then went for lunch. That led to a series of informal chats, which eventually led to a job offer.

    The culture was jeans, t-shirts and a palpable intellectual curiosity and excitement about the work.

    I loved it. The salary was pathetic and I didn't care because the culture was so unique.
