PitchBook Named Top Workplace in Washington for Third Time
June 28, 2017Employees Recognize PitchBook’s Culture, Training and Growth Opportunities as Key Drivers of Workplace Satisfaction in Puget Sound Business Journal’s Annual List
SEATTLE – JUNE 23, 2017 – PitchBook, the premier data provider for the private capital markets, today announced it was named one of the Best Workplaces in Washington by the Puget Sound Business Journal in the category of businesses with over 250 employees. Out of hundreds of nominations, the Journal distilled the list to just 20 companies in each size category based on scores from a comprehensive employee survey. For the third year, PitchBook employees ranked the company highest on all workplace satisfaction measurements including culture, training and growth opportunities.
“PitchBook is all about great people doing great things every day to make our customers’ lives just a little better,” said John Gabbert, founder and CEO of PitchBook. “It’s awesome to get feedback from our employees that they feel appreciated and empowered. Culture is something that we truly work on every day and there’s always more work to be done. We’ll continue to invest heavily in our people, provide more communication and make PitchBook an even better place to work.”
In just 10 years, PitchBook has grown into a 637-person organization stretching global offices in Seattle, New York and London. With a 60% year-over-year revenue growth rate since 2009, the company has cornered the market as the leading source of private capital market data, serving more than 2,000 institutional clients. Following its acquisition by Morningstar in December 2016, the company has continued to grow, both from a revenue and workforce standpoint, all while maintain high levels of employee satisfaction, as exemplified by the Puget Sound Business Journal’s annual list. Together with Morningstar, PitchBook will continue to prioritize employee satisfaction through various HR initiatives, including a continued education program and other office perks.
The Puget Sound Business Journal's ranking of Washington's Best Workplaces aims to honor regional companies setting the bar for workplace culture and employee satisfaction. To make the list, companies must first be nominated and then invite their workforce to participate in an anonymous survey, administered by Quantum Workplaces, to provide feedback on all aspects of employee satisfaction, including career development, relationship with management, perks and benefits and workplace environment. In each size category, 20 businesses are chosen based solely on the results of the employee surveys.
The honorees will be celebrated at an awards event on August 3 at Safeco Field. For more information about PitchBook, click here.
