I have been working at Gerson Lehrman Group full-time

Pros

GLG has a really special culture in that everyone is super friendly; the org is relatively flat so you have opportunities to interact with leaders at the most senior level; and the direction the new CEO is taking us is exciting

Cons

GLG has struggled with inclusion and diversity, but it seems like it's being addressed and is a top priority
