I have been working at Gerson Lehrman Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

GLG hires and develops top talent. Given GLG's client base and experts, it's hard to imagine a job where you're exposed to smarter, more thoughtful people.

Cons

Can be an intense environment, high expectations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to offer training, continuing education and coaching to junior managers.

    Intelligent, talented employees, but internship a bit monotonous.

    I worked at Gerson Lehrman Group as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very talented, intelligent people to work with, and as an intern you are still treated as part of the team. Free coffee. You also get your own mentor as a resource. Office is a fairly pleasant environment, downtown Austin.

    Cons

    As an intern, you do only two things, lead generation and wakeup calls. It's not that bad, but can really drag on if you get a lot of the same kind of requests in one day. Also you'd better live or go to school close by because parking is very expensive for your wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why does the CEO never make an appearance or have anything to say to the Austin office? I really got the sense that this was bad for morale.

    I worked at Gerson Lehrman Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    GLG has a unique product offering...(but see cons)
    The people are really intelligent

    Cons

    GLG has a unique product offering that they refuse to innovate or evolve so it's still stuck in the 90s for financial services companies. The competition will figure this out and get ahead of them soon.
    The CEO has NO CLUE what he's doing and is slowly letting the company crumble
    Benefits are awful and the management cares very little for their employees
    Company rewards length of time employed rather than merit. Too many 8-year employees (all now SVPs and above) who are just floating around without any real job or responsibilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave so some new blood can save the company!
