    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GLG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good office space and compensation package.

    Cons

    1. Bad management 2. Tedious work with no scope for growth 3. “Research” comprises of LinkedIn Stalking and persistant, annoying approach to sign up SMEs on GLG platform

    Advice to Management

    1. Lay out the job roles and descriptions for what they are instead of “selling” the idea to candidates that this is a research/consulting opportunity. 2. Work life balance needs to be incorporated in the culture or the overtime needs to be paid.

    I worked at GLG full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It’s a great company and offers good work life balance and plenty of opportunities for growth and learning. It has an open work culture so seniors are quite approachable and are always willing to listen to and address employee concerns. Interaction with clients (if in client facing role) and very senior professionals across industries ensures that the job doesn’t get monotonous and you are up to date with what is... happening in the industry. There is a lot of focus on learning, flexible working, women empowerment etc. which adds to a positive future outlook of the company. If you join the firm as a fresher there is a lot of learning about various industries involved which helps in building a lot of sector knowledge.

    I worked at GLG full-time

    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 high attrition rate
