PitchBook offers clients data on global mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital activity that goes far beyond what’s available online. The PitchBook Platform database enables users to find and analyze details across the entire private investment life cycle — from fund initiation to company exit. New employees are able to quickly develop deep perspective on the industry through a two-week PitchBook University training session on private market basics.
That kind of training continues throughout an employee’s career. “We look for professionals who want to learn, want to grow,” says CEO John Gabbert. The company has nearly 500 employees in Seattle, New York and London. PitchBook’s 220 workers in Seattle enjoy in-office parties, pizza lunches, local brews and Mariners games. Employees rave about the company’s training programs and its “work hard, play hard” ethic.
