    I have been working at GLG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to senior professionals (CEO's, MD's, Top consultants) as clients or experts Clearly laid out, and rapid progression at junior level (12-18m promotion outlook for new Associate who perform well) and beyond; International mobility options to/from US and Europe Pace and positive energy: Never a dull moment and young motivated team Growing company (look at industry reports), still feels like a (now big) start-up!...

    Cons

    Internal career paths for those who want to stay longer than 3 years currently limited to one "Track" but strong new options created Core activities will typically not leverage technical skills (Data, Finance), but can be appealing for some

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on breaking down internal silos across functions and regions; this definitely one of the better organisation I have seen though Maintain autonomy within International offices

    Pros

    Good coffee, nice office, decent salary

    Cons

    Terrible senior management, a lot of distrust and negativity in the office, employees are treated very unfairly, no over time pay but you get penalised if you don't stay late by being given bad projects, open favouritism. Example was were forced to work from the office during mumbai floods until it was too late, even when other offices were evacuated and police had issued red alert - all of this is can be seen by the...

    Pros

    -Good work life balance. You almost never have to carry work home or work beyond six, except days when there are global CEO talks which are interesting. -Great colleagues. Most are out of college with an average age of about 22 which make them have a fresh perspective at work. There is a sense of teamwork in the team and the employees help each other -Good senior global leadership. Work gives a lot of visibility...

    Cons

    -Severe lack of leadership: The Gurugram leadership is either absent from everything or irrelevant. They come and go as they please. Take leaves as they please. In the six hours (yes, they don't even work eight hours) that they spend in office, no one has a clue what they do between the dozens of cigarette breaks they take. There is virtually no communication with them even though they sit in the same office space. ...

    Advice to Management

    Review the local management. They are redundant and have no adopted to changing business and have become comfortable with delegating rather than leading. GLG Gurugram needs visionary leaders and no Nannies/Baby-Sitters to keep employees under surveillance.

    - A wonderful bunch of young and enthusiastic kids out of college willing to work. - Approachable global leaders - New CEO is energetic and the future looks prosperous - Free beverage in the pantry

    Cons

    The management is thoroughly unprofessional and largely serve in the operations function without any knowledge of compliance. It is utterly frustrating that for every little issue, the concern is sended to the compliance team abroad to resolve because of severe lack of knowledge locally. There exists, rampant favoritism as individuals who are close to the management, despite having a poor track records for nearly...

    Advice to Management

    This is great company. Conduct an audit on the management in Gurugram. They need to understand that this isn't their personal property or personal company in the way that it is run.
