Current Employee - Business Analyst

I have been working at McKinsey & Company full-time for less than a year

Cons

Can feel challenging at times

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.
