    Pros

    Smart, dedicated staff that is focused on breaking news and providing proprietary market information and analysis to a sophisticated readership. It's a nice place to work.

    Cons

    It's a wonky financial news service that won't be a good fit for journalists looking to write long features. M&A is the name of the game here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees better.

    Pros

    Great culture, opportunity for advancement, energetic environment, mentoring, conveniently located right off the 1/2/3 line

    Cons

    lower pay compared to rest of the industry. Most of the major players already have the product so you have to rely on renewals for large portion of your book of business.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let BC Partners ruin the great environment and culture you built over the years. Growth is important, as is product innovation, but don't let the pressure of their targets transfer down to the teams.

    Pros

    Mergermarket was a great place to work. Very close-knit and was able to actually meet and speak with upper-level management. Young, fun, supportive employees/team members. Nice office and roof terrace in the building.

    Cons

    Needs a little bit more improvement on organization and decision-making from upper-level staff. Really don't have much complaints about this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep interacting with your staff and fostering a very collaborative, close-knit environment. As said, not much I disliked about Mergermarket. Excited to see how they expand/improve in coming years.

    If you want to keep talent you need to create career opportunities.
