I worked at PitchBook full-time for less than a year

Pros

Really nice, down-to-earth junior people who look out for one another

Cons

Crazy CEO with completely misaligned and uncontrollable expectations. People are in constant fear of getting fired. He has fired people WHILE they were on vacation -- there is no compassion in the way people are managed. NOT a place for career growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove the CEO and staff the company with senior management who KNOW how to attract and retain top talent.

    I have been working at PitchBook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice view of the sound. Cool workspace.

    Cons

    Workers are worried about being fired for random reasons. It is hard to focus when senior management changes direction constantly. Bonus program is hit or miss and makes no sense. Favoritism is the only way to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an atmosphere where workers feel safe, understand expectations, and know what is required to receive their quarterly bonus.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, good product. Thats it!

    Cons

    Management really lacks here. Not a fun culture to work in. Co-workers are great, but most aren't genuinely happy about what they are doing. We are overworked and dont get the praise we need.
    Make sure you do your research before you think about working here.
