    I worked at Gerson Lehrman Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    GLG attracts very smart people from variety of background but every department can boast of hiring talented and experienced individuals.

    Cons

    Not a very collaborative environment - the approaches are very individualistic. Tend to hire smart people but not great

    Advice to Management

    What looks great on paper in terms of education and experience may not translate to great management or people skills.

    I worked at Gerson Lehrman Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Some really great people to work with, made great friendships and long-term professional contacts
    - Some colleagues were very encouraging and went out of their way to highlight your abilities to internal management and clients
    - Interesting work some of the time that kept you learning more about various fields
    - Some really nice and interesting clients that were a pleasure to work with
    - Good drink selection

    Cons

    - Unrealistic expectations of employees including being "on call" 24/7/365
    - Numerous "initiatives" that swing attention in one direction for a week or so and then a new one shortly thereafter that takes attention in a completely different direction
    - Management turns a blind eye to those who do not pull their weight; doesn't acknowledge that workload distribution is imbalanced
    - Company politics like I've never seen in an organization; if you do good work that may not be enough if you're not properly aligned
    - GLG is an expert network that isn't proud of it's position relative to the competition and is constantly trying to be something its not.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on core competencies and work on company wide communications
