    I have been working at GLG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Top of the line MacBook Pro, freedom to expense all the tools you need
    - Work from home 4-5 days a week, and/or go to the beautiful and conveniently located office as much as you want
    - Freedom to pursue projects that you think have real business value, ability to switch between teams in the company
    - Devs on my team are great, real focus on building quality products that meet real business needs without deadlines. Little pressure from management to "get code out the door." If I need to take a couple weeks for a research project based on log files and app-generated data, I can do that.
    - Vision, dental, and health insurance are reasonable. Life and disability insurance are free, with options to increase the benefits. Great parental leave

    Cons

    - Company is growing quickly right now, making it more difficult to find people with institutional knowledge to answer questions
    - It took a couple weeks to sort out benefits when I was hired
    - Healthcare premium is not 100% covered, plans have a deductible so an FSA account is a good idea

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time building a collaborative culture considering large number of WFH employees. Developers often split off into pairs or threes with video chat and the group chat room is frequently lifeless. It can feel a little segmented and isolated.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at GLG (Boston, MA) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Straightforward process - phone screen + an onsite interview. The onsite consists of a presentation about a side project (programming related) and then lunch with the team. The presentation took the format of a code review plus a demo, and the lunch was more centered around Q&A with the team.

    Interview Questions

    • There arent really normal questions you can expect - anything you're asked will pertain to the code/project presentation.   Answer Question
