    Negative Outlook

    I worked at G-Research full-time

    Pros

    Some very smart people to work with
    Good pay and benefits

    Mixed blessings:
    Rules limit hours in the office so engineers generally have to leave before 8pm
    Lack of email outside of the office means getting urgent emails that disrupt your holiday is not an issue

    Cons

    Very draconian constraints in the name of security make getting work done extremely hard (rubber stamping from various levels of management to make otherwise-straightfoward changes, mandatory spyware-like tools that cause performance issues on workstations and servers, purposeful knowledge siloing, ...)
    Lack of personal phones in the office and work-from-home options means office-hours life admin can be difficult

    Advice to Management

    Make empowering the people beneath you a priority and listen to them when they advise that your decisions are getting in the way of their work

    Placement Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at G-Research (London, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    There was an online test on Linux and Networking after the application has been made, and then an invitation to an assessment centre. There were different tasks at the assessment centre involving roleplaying as a placement student and working with other applicants. The train journey and accommodation for the journey were paid for via reimbursement, however it took them about a month and a half at least to get round to doing it.

    Interview Questions

    • How you would react to certain situations if you were to get the job and there were certain roleplaying exercises, such as a simulated phone call with a stakeholder.   Answer Question
