  1.  

    Unethical management that promotes putting down your peers to get promoted.

    I have been working at Glocap full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - For some reason, firm does manage to work with some well known clients

    Cons

    - Unethical senior management
    - Promotion is rewarded only at the cost of your peers
    - Hideous pyramid scheme pay structure
    - Sr. management has burned so many bridges with high end clients - you are fighting their scorched earth....
    - Horrible turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shut down the firm and start over. Adam Zoia has ruined his own name in the world (which is great) - you don't have to explain why you left the firm because everyone else has.

    I worked at Glocap full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Very lively office, interactive people who make the day go by quickly.
    - Hardworking associates
    - Good feedback from higher-ups (if you have been placed with the right VP/MD).

    Cons

    - Not much room for growth.
    - You put in an incredible amount of work for little reward (when working as an assistant and not a VP or MD).
    - Very high turnover leads to a lack of strength in teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your assistants help you and give them better feedback when they are not doing something the correct way.

    Set up for failure by very little training/communication from remote mgmt and inadequate pay.

    I worked at Glocap

    Pros

    Having "Recruiter" on a resume may show competence
    Well known name in financial community

    Cons

    Virtually no hands on training from remote mgmt, pay structure where co mgmt collects majority of fees brought in by associates, while associates are paid nearly min wage in the first 6 months, then turned to 100% commission (no salary). Employees are in a position to be paid NOTHING for a few months at a time - after 6 months of living on nearly min wage - so no time to save $ to live on during those no-income months. Pay outs on searches closed can take 6 months to actually be paid to employee, which is not addressed in contract. The only way to do this job in the first few years is to have a supplementary income. Very difficult to live in the Bay Area if Glocap is providing your only income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More hands-on training, more time (one year) with realistic/adequate urban living wages while employees are learning/ramping up.
