      Great people, flexible

      Feb 12, 2022 - Senior Client Solutions Associate in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      -Personable, outgoing people culture -Leadership takes time to be involved with junior level positions -They reach you so much about the business unit you are placed in despite your lack of experience in the field before the job. Don’t worry about not having majored in finance for example. A lot of people come from liberal arts backgrounds that don’t seem relevant to the current job purpose -Kind of unlimited PTO: they usually account for employees to take 15-20 days off but it’s super simple to ask for time off -Promotion usually within a year

      Cons

      -If you’re working in the financial services business unit, you will be working a lot! Be prepared to learn a lot of GLG specific things/ways to do your job. -You may burn out if you don’t communicate to your manager or leadership about your workload.

      Exposure to sophisticated clients and experts | Freedom to develop | Regional setup

      Sep 6, 2022 - Director

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Love the clients I work with and the experts I connect them with. Served sophisticated institutional investors on diverse projects. Loved the access to senior experts from across the geographies and industries. Relatively young team from many different nationalities. Lots of freedom to shape your role, of course, if you meet your objectives. Compliance is a real thing here and you need to drive your own professional development. When you do, it's worth it. Love the team I work with.

      Cons

      At times, the company feels too American and cooperation across the regions is less than smooth.
