I worked at Glocap full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- amazing team (but the best ones leave rather quickly)
- used to have highly coveted jobs at highly coveted hedge and PE funds - great place to make contacts within this industry

Cons

- absentee CEO who spends majority of time on vacation
- CEO micromanages every aspect of company down to the penny - but is never around so nothing ever gets done
- even most senior staff feel unempowered to do anything without CEO sign-off
- CEO is among the brightest people in the world, but uses intelligence to be among the slipperiest person in the world

Advice to Management

empower your staff. engage with your company. or, leave the company to be managed by your great deputies.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Glocap full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - For some reason, firm does manage to work with some well known clients

    Cons

    - Unethical senior management
    - Promotion is rewarded only at the cost of your peers
    - Hideous pyramid scheme pay structure
    - Sr. management has burned so many bridges with high end clients - you are fighting their scorched earth....
    - Horrible turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Shut down the firm and start over. Adam Zoia has ruined his own name in the world (which is great) - you don't have to explain why you left the firm because everyone else has.


  2. "Good attitudes, high turnover, long hours."

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Glocap full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very lively office, interactive people who make the day go by quickly.
    - Hardworking associates
    - Good feedback from higher-ups (if you have been placed with the right VP/MD).

    Cons

    - Not much room for growth.
    - You put in an incredible amount of work for little reward (when working as an assistant and not a VP or MD).
    - Very high turnover leads to a lack of strength in teams.

    Advice to Management

    Help your assistants help you and give them better feedback when they are not doing something the correct way.
