    I have been working at Gerson Lehrman Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, fun, cool, people and office. Great place to start career. Have to build strong communication and client management skills.

    Cons

    Daily tasks can become mundane. Not always intellectually stimulating/challenging work, but you still get to learn a lot about all sorts of random markets/companies. Still not totally sure how this job fits into my career goals and feel I do not have enough guidance on this.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gerson Lehrman Group.

    Interview

    Had a 20 minute phone screen with a newer member to the GLG team. The interviewer called 30 minutes later than scheduled which I found to be highly unprofessional. Later had another 30-minute video call with the hiring manager.
