      Pros

      I have been working at GLG for quite some time, and have never been more excited to be a part of this company. The new leadership team is receptive to feedback, nimble in implementing smart changes, and driving accountability throughout the organization. A few great things about the company: - Interesting clients who you have the opportunity to learn from - Powerful product lines to offer - People of GLG are intelligent, curious, supportive, and committed to building a diverse culture - Collaborative teams that are committed to providing best-in-class service - Opportunity to rise through the organization for those who work hard and demonstrate passion for our business - Nature of the business and products enables continued activity, despite COVID-19 and market stress - New leadership has created significant positive change within the organization - Transparent leadership and opportunity to inform strategy

      Cons

      If you are looking for a 9-5 job, GLG is not the company for you. GLG clients work long hours and if you're doing your job well, you become essential to their process, which means you may need to be available during off hours / weekends. I have seen GLG's approach to off-hours coverage improve, but GLG will never be able to control when clients need us.

      Pros

      In office, lots of fun! Working remote has been very flexible during COVID, but I miss the perks.

      Cons

      Work is repeitive, but they tell you to find specifics to make it interesting. Long hours sometimes and a bit of a frat culture, BUT they are working really hard on inclusivity initiatives.

      Pros

      Co-workers, great views from the office, free coffee, casual dress code.

      Cons

      Long hours with the expectation that you will continue to respond to clients until 9:30pm and on weekends. No parking, they only reimburses a partial amount for garages downtown that doesn’t come close to the full amount. Metrics heavy even when the metrics can seem unrealistic given clients propensity to cancel projects on a whim leaving your hard work unaccounted for. Unlimited PTO is not actually unlimited. This is a recruiting job. Any position in client services is all about recruiting and recruiting the best candidate in a very small window of time. Hardly any actual client development, that is all handled by BD.
