I worked at Bridge Capital Holdings (More than a year)
Great for college graduates. Good starter job. The people are pretty cool. Kitchen stocked with drinks, coffee, tea and some snacks.
Pay is extremely low. Benefits are mediocre. Some people think they own the bank and since the acquisition things changed (for the worse).
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bridge Capital Holdings (San Jose, CA) in January 2014.
Initial phone interview with HR, followed by an in-person interview with members of the lending team.
The phone interview was more about fit, with very simple accounting questions ("What's a balance sheet? What are liabilities?").
The in-person interview was conducted by a panel from the lending team, but accounting questions were still very basic. Seems like the focus was more on fit, as analyst positions usually lead to client-facing roles. There's usually a lending manager present, along with a few relationship managers.
After a few weeks, I received an offer by phone.
