    I have been working at GLG full-time


    I’ve been at GLG for almost a year, and what I’ve seen over the past few months has been genuinely inspiring. Sometimes it takes a moment of great stress - -like the Covid pandemic -- to show what kind of culture your company has. I’ve seen teams rising to the occasion and rallying together. In my team specifically, people have not been shy about asking for help, but people are also raising their hands without being asked, pitching in where they can, even moving roles and departments. The company’s leaders are acting with agility, resilience, and compassion. I’m proud to be working here.

    Advice to Management

    Experiencing a crisis like Covid, we can see how motivation and accountability do in fact come from within – not solely from top-down targets. Fostering a culture for the future is critical, and the company should promote and develop those who are living up to all of GLG’s values.

    Do not let up on manager training, especially during difficult times like these. Good leadership is and will continue to be key, at all levels. Also, while we are still working from home it’s even more important to keep open channels of communications between managers and their direct reports. Trust employees to tell you what they need and any obstacles in their way to success. And if they don’t tell you, just ask.
