    I worked at Third Bridge for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is positive and the company has a good vibe to it. The job is very easy to do and even a fool should be able to sail through it.

    Cons

    The actual job is incredibly stupid and a real waste of your time. The website doesn't explain the job clear enough but this is essentially a call centre job. Third Bridge arranges phone conversations between people who need information (like say an investment fund) and people who have that information (say an executive at a rival company that the fund is looking to buy). Your job as the research associate is to facilitate the phone call. That's it. So you find relevant people on Linkedin, try getting a phone number, then get them to agree and then set up the call. That's all there is. You do not participate in on the call and you learn nothing on finance/strategy or anything of that sort. All you learn is cold calling and some call centre skills. I didn't know all of this when I joined (which explains why I left early) but anyone with even a bit of self respect / career ambitions should stay clear of this call centre company.

    Pros

    Friendly, hard working environment. Direction of company seems really positive, with everyone pulling together. Location is great, right next to Liverpool Street and Spitalfields market. Graduates paid great salary on joining with clear career path from first day. Informative induction, gives good impression of company. Flexible working including working from home are options.

    Cons

    Work life balance typical of sector, but managers conscious to promote that excessive hours are not expected.

    Nice working environment. The young team makes young joiners feel more comfortable. Good salary based on commission.

    Former Employee - Research Associate 

    I worked at Third Bridge full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent place to work right out of college, nice, earnest young coworkers looking to get paid and enjoy their life after school, sociable work environment.

    Cons

    Experience strongly depends on the sector and team you're placed in, and there were extremely limited opportunities to transfer during my time there. Target and bonus culture is extremely stressful, even more so with clients who don't place calls, and you have to be comfortable pressuring strangers constantly on the phone, email, text, etc. Work is not intellectually stimulating, though socially very much so. Play your cards right and befriend the right people, and you'll do fine, but it's admittedly a hard place to keep working at if you have a rough start, rocky team or stingy clients, and there's extremely high turnover with very few actual senior senior level staff (team leaders and senior associates are usually anywhere from 23-27 years old). Almost no opportunity to learn hard skills until at team leader level for future careers.
