    I have been working at GLG full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Having worked at a few companies before here, I can confidently say none of them put in the effort GLG does into making everyone feel like they are contributing and making a difference, regardless of title or level. It is a collaborative and supportive environment, which creates endless opportunities to learn from all the smart, talented and hardworking people here. Everything starts from the top and it is very refreshing to see senior leadership actually care about making this company a great place to work.

    Cons

    There have recently been significant changes made throughout the company, and although change is never easy, leadership took the time to implement all aspects correctly to ensure a smooth transition for both employees and clients. It is just the beginning, but you can already feel the positive impact these changes have made company wide.

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

    Pros

    Apart from the location in Mumbai - BKC, there are hardly any benefits

    Cons

    • No work-life balance. Work for 10-11 hours everyday and then work after you're home as well • No clarity in job role - doesn't match what is part of the job description. It's mostly editing bios and profiles of experts on boarded and more of that • The training module and process is rushed. There is nobody who will help you with your queries, while being trained nor after been given projects of your own. And if then you make mistakes, it's just hour long futile meetings with your manager and playing the blame game • Read it in another review of being termed as a Glorified Call Centre - Totally agree to that • No scope of learning

    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.

    Cons

    Growth at senior level is currently limited.

    Pros

    All I can think of is good salary which this company can offer,

    Cons

    Terrible senior management, a lot of distrust and negativity in the office, employees are treated very unfairly, open favouritism and it feels like a one man show here who is running this shop and not a company.

    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
