    Weak CEO Clings to Job and Company Stumbles Along

    Pros

    smart and interesting group of people you work with -- tend to have similar backgrounds and managers are pretty much a strong group

    Cons

    Someone below said there's a strong foundation that company is built on, but that the CEO is totally unfit to run company; that kind of nails it. He not only can't think through strategy, he has a total absence of leadership skills. He's openly mocked by senior managers, and there seems unanimous consent that he is way over his head at this point. There's no accountability as far as I can tell for the huge money, time, and effort he wasted on various social media efforts that contributed nothing to sales and growth (and actually took time and focus away from our core markets), and we stumble along with no overall plan. We all wonder why our very smart investors don't replace him already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need a strong, decisive, and strategically informed CEO -- current one has to go.

    GLG is a fantastic company. They genuinely want employees to excel - whether at GLG or at another company.

    Pros

    Great company culture.
    Company is still young and growing - it's a great time to be a part of the changes that GLG is making.

    Cons

    If you let yourself, I feel like you could be at work all the time. People rarely take lunch breaks (or breaks of any kind) and more often than not, eat at their desks.
