No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Young, energetic and lively staff. Breakfast and lunch in the office weekly. Access to some of the best technology available.

Cons

CEO counts every penny, to the point of being unbearable. Extremely long hours taking away from normal personal life. You never feel like you're able to fully disconnect.

Advice to Management

Let your employees take some time off the same way that upper management and the CEO can do it. Taking a breath outside the office and letting your brain rest is important.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Glocap full-time

    Pros

    There are some good people to work with on the recruiting team, but it depends on the office location and team. Most of the decent people have already left the company. Turnover is incredibly high and frequent.

    Cons

    The completely and utterly incompetent and unethical management makes this a horrific place to work. The management will do whatever is best for themselves and does not care about the employees at all. Stay away at all cost and save yourself the trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of your employees in unethical ways.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
