    I have been working at Glosten

    Pros

    Great clients and interesting work. A lot of talented people work here.

    Cons

    Seems company is looking backwards; talk is always about how great it used to be. It's all about billable hours and whether you get on

    Advice to Management

    Stop it with the culture lectures and treat us like adults.

    I have been working at Glosten

    Pros

    The company culture at Glosten is very nice. Everyone is collaborative, helpful, and interested in helping you to grow as an Engineer.

    Cons

    Glosten's Senior leadership can be a little heavy-handed and conservative. This can lead to the stifling of creative solutions.

    Advice to Management

    To be truly innovative, Glosten's Senior leadership would do well to be more hands-off during early stages of a project and rely on an employee's more immediate management to vet ideas.
