Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than a year

Pros

The job expectations and promotion progress feel very transparent at Facebook and I feel that my manager has my best interests in mind. I receive plenty of help from senior engineers and feel that I... am progressing well as a programmer. My team also agrees to work 40hr weeks, which is not what I was expecting before coming here (excluding oncall).

Cons

I work on a ton of refactoring, so having to understand undocumented and poorly written code can be a pain :( When I am oncall, I can be paged to fix the production service after work hours though... I haven't been paged while sleeping yet.

Current Employee - Vice President

I have been working at GLG full-time for less than a year

Pros

GLG is a great place to grow as a professional. It's rare to see established company with an entrepreneurial spirit function well. Also great to see a company that eats its own cooking. Throughout... this time of crisis GLG leadership turned to expert advice to guide decision making. The executive leadership team has made sound decisions and shown compassion to employees as we all adapt to a new normal.

Cons

A few GLG old-timers are stuck in "the way things used to be". For this company to thrive it needs to innovate and embrace new thinking and new processes - or a process. At times decisions are made... as though we're still a 100-person company working out of a small house.

Advice to Management

GLG needs a diversity of opinion, particularly in senior management. A prior role at McKinsey should not be a pre-requisite to working at GLG. We need more operators and fewer strategists. Along... these lines, please continue your focus on diversity and inclusion and ensure clear follow-through on these efforts.
