    I worked at Glass Lewis & Co as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked on the Executive Compensation team that offered an interesting perspective considering the recent emphasis on NEO pay. Overall the work was informative and I gained a range of knowledge on the subject.

    Cons

    At times the work could get boring and repetitive, but then a report comes to your desk that could be quite complicated and interesting. This back-and-forth of expectations could become annoying.

    I have been working at Glass Lewis & Co full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Low pressure, low tension, pretty relaxed work atmosphere. Analysts are very friendly and happy to teach you even if you have a hundred questions a day.

    Cons

    Extremely boring once you know how to do it. No room for growth, no responsibilities, no projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up some pathways for promotions each season.

    I worked at Glass Lewis & Co full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice environment for a first timer experiencing full-time work: 9-5, mandatory lunch break of at least half an hour. Good accommodations - fridge and sink and tea. Lots of temps get hired in proxy season, and the management is fair and used to training newcomers. You'll have plenty of support and company.

    Cons

    Their business involves hiring tons of temps during proxy season. I wouldn't bet on staying on full time. The work wasn't that stimulating for me. But I felt that good work was noticed by my managers so there is some feeling of reward.

    Diverse work place where there are small teams covering different parts of the world in one place. People are generally nice.

    Cons

    Depending on what you do, the analysis part can get pretty boring because it is so systematic.
