    I have been working at GLG full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    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...

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at GLG full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    GLG truly has a remarkable business model and mission: Bringing the power insights to every great professional decision. It's rare to find a company that works with the world's most influential business men and women and rarer yet to be seen as thought partners on complex business problems. GLG allows young professionals to shine and to flex their creative and consultative muscles.

    Cons

    Efforts to bolster the L&D program are being rolled out, which would help employees progress nicely through there careers. The company is also going through considerable changes, all for the better, but it may make working here a but turbulent. All the changes are with the intention of making GLG a better place to work and to increase GLG's value to its clients.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining the brilliant folks at GLG!

    I worked at GLG full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    GLG is a company of continuous improvement. I've admired how much that company has changed in the nearly 4 years that I had been there. It looks and feels completely different, from 2015. In a good way! I think taking an approach of continuous improvement is something that GLG-ers should take to heart personally and professionally as it is a great approach to taking a critical look at what's working, what can be working...

    Cons

    There is still some room for improvement, especially in terms of clear job responsibilities and expectations for night/weekend work. GLG is not a 9-5 job (in a good way) it keeps you busy and challenges you. But just make sure everyone knows the benefit of those challenges and has the opportunity to recharge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take a step back and ask "what can we be doing better?" Hire and promote individuals who are 'new' to GLG instead of legacy GLG leaders who can provide a "fresh perspective" on how you can improve. Continue to peel back the curtain. The coolest thing about GLG is understnading how valuable your work is to our client's lives. Make sure every GLG-er knows that. Good luck!
