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


    Coming from a large organization of 75,000+ employees, GLG is a dream company to work for. The work is stimulating and challenging, people are incredibly friendly, and there are opportunities for rapid growth if you put in the work and show your value. The benefits that GLG provides are also vast and on-par with larger companies with much deeper pockets, which shows that management truly cares about the well-being of their employees.


    Things are changing rapidly, which could be viewed as a con to some. Depending on how willing you are to change as the company changes, there is definitely room to add more onto your plate and advance quickly through the company, so it really is what you make of it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to employee feedback! It has improved tremendously over the years and it is exciting to be part of a company where senior management takes an active approach to employee commentary.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GLG (Austin, TX) in July 2015.


    There were steps: 2 phone calls, 1 case study review, 1 afternoon of in person meetings. Overall, it felt like they were looking for more of a culture fit than to see if my background or experience fit with the job role.
