    Pros

    You will get to work alongside some of the most intelligent colleagues you will ever work with, the work culture is great, and everyone is supportive of each other which is completely opposite to the typical corporate environment. GLG does a great job of taking care of, training, developing, and motivating their employees. This is a great place to start your career as well as build a robust professional network and there is a lot of room for growth if you find the company to be a good fit.

    Cons

    The work-life balance can be a bit tough at times, but I believe the company is working to address this issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, that is, maintaining an open door policy and meeting with and mentoring associates.

    Placements Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took over a month. Two phone interviews/conversations, four in person interviews and a written case study assignment. Interviews were a mix of conversation and questions mostly about my background/experience.
    Case study wasn't spoken about much other than going over it over the phone with feedback that it was "excellent and impressive". Replies to my thank you emails were on the whole very nice however two of them were interesting, one included nothing in the body of the email (from an Engagement Manager) and the other my name was spelled incorrectly (from a Managing Director). Feedback and email correspondence from the employee who leads the business unit and a VP I interviewed with were helpful, complimentary, sincere and much appreciated. Overall a fine/neutral experience, recruiter was easy to work with, interviewers pleasant. However, I found it unnecessary and disappointing to take a candidate through a long involved process knowing he doesn't have private equity experience and in the end that experience is very important to the job and a determining factor.
