I have been working at GLG full-time for less than a year
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.
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.
I have been working at Talroo full-time for more than 3 years
I am so lucky to be a part of fun and hardworking environment. One of the best parts of working at Talroo is the people. Our team is not only full of high IQ but also high EQ folks - they can be... easy-going, and they are always super eager to help others become successful. Our catered lunches (and grill days) is one of the best parts of the day because we get to eat together and continue to get to know each other, you never feel lonely. Managers want to see you succeed and will praise you for a job well done if you go the extra mile. They actually listen to your ideas and will give you feedback on implementation and that creates a phenomenal experience. It is impressive how many ideas come directly from regular employees and are put into action. Executives are transparent and will give regular updates on the business - both positive and negative. You will interact with them regularly. The CEO also gives trainings focusing on what we do, why we do it, and how it happens. If you would like to grow in your personal development of knowledge and skills outside of your job description, you are encouraged to do so. Fellow co-workers may be the ones to help you grow in these areas through shadowing and knowledge sharing. Like any company there is change, this is one of my favorite parts because it always keeps things interesting and it gives me a very positive outlook for the future of this company. I enjoy the work that I do every day. I can directly tie personal success in my role to success of the company. You can make an impact! Perks - Free catered lunch from some of the best places in Austin - 20 minute break (Tea Time) at 3:40 every day - Monthly health insurance is covered - Great office space (coffee bar, lunch room with food always available), sparkling water at your disposal, great views and of course, scooters.
