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

      6 Sep 2022 - Director 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      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.

      Great job with good pay & benefits!

      3 Feb 2023 - Senior Client Solutions Associate 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Good pay + quarterly bonuses - Fast track to promotion if you hit your metrics - Very thorough training to help you succeed - VERY flexible PTO & great benefits - Flexible hybrid work (only go in 2 days a week and the days we do go in, we go in around 10AM to avoid traffic, so nice!) - Great leadership - lots of young professionals - Fun work culture in my experience - team outings, work happy hours, etc. - Lots of great skills to learn especially in the client facing senior role

      Cons

      - Time-sensitive work so you must be able to work in fast paced environments - Can work longer hours if you don’t get your work done - I personally never work passed 5:30. Some people work until 7:00 because they don’t get their work done in time - Must be good at time management! If you’re not, you will have to work late hours. Just finish your work during the day and you’re good to go!

      Good Office Culture & Growth Opportunities

      31 Jan 2023 - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      GLG is a great place to start your career and quickly advance. You'll learn a lot from smart colleagues and the clients/experts you interact with. Leadership genuinely cares about employees and invests heavily in DE&I, development opportunities, career path, benefits, and more. Plus there's a strong Social Impact program to add meaning to the work.

      Cons

      Most jobs are client-facing so you'll learn a lot and develop important skills, but you will also work hard.
