Fantastic Consulting Opportunities
Senior Healthcare Consultant-ad hoc (Current Employee) –  Seaford, DelawareSeptember 29, 2015
Found Gerson Lehrman to be a company which has offered new opportunities to work with healthcare clients who are seeking specialized knowledge.

The opportunities have ranged from financial to forecasting of company selections to health electronic records. Has been a pleasure to be a part of their team; compensation is terrific; the managers and analysts are very professional and a pleasure to partner. Appreciate their adherence to ethics and the focus on ensuring the information we provide (or the client requests) is compliant with all laws. It is a part of their onboard training, and again, before each conference call with a client.
Pros
Challenges of new clients, research topics, variety
Cons
Unable to predict how many calls will be awarded each month

Freelance Research Analyst (Current Employee) –  Green Bay, WisconsinMarch 18, 2014
There are numerous advantages to working for Gerson Lehrman Group. This organization is extremely organized and professional with all of their clients on a consistent basis.

Pros
Superior management team, culture, atmosphere, and overall environment.
Cons
Provide a lateral platform for freelance consultants to transition to full time.

terrible inconsistent culture and huge turnover
Senior Research Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 12, 2012
GLG seems to be on the downward path right now. Hopefully so new leaders will help move the needle in the right direction. There is a huge turnover rate and people are pretty miserable. Different offices have different personalities and face time is a given.
Pros
lots of cute girls
Cons
long hours, poor pay and lack of clear direction from management oh and lots of micro managers

Great people, interesting work
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 15, 2012
GLG is a great place for someone who is either looking for a two year analyst type program before they go back to school or someone who has been in finance for years and wants a little bit better quality of life. The people are by far the best thing about the company as just about everyone is friendly, smart and ambitious. The clients are very demanding so patience and top notch customer service are key to succeed.
Pros
good work/life balance, the people
Cons
you won't become a millionaire

Problems from the top.
Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 27, 2013
Problems start from the top. Replace senior leadership and insert someone with a vision and someone who actually communicates to their employees. Create clear routes for professional development. Be transparent. Heavily invest in new technology and systems.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
no 401k matching, small bonuses, no clear vision

Work with people behind a desk
Member Solutions Intern (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 25, 2015
GLG was very desk job based. I did not get to interact with customers face to face as I would have liked to. The people were great but there were not as many team building exercises as I would have liked. There was also not much room for personal growth and creativity.

Smart people, strong product, top performers with integrity
Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 23, 2013
So many companies today have no integrity. GLG is a company that values integrity, entrepreneurial employees and oustanding customer service. The people are great and definitely have seen that positions were filled with people that didn't make the cut and those are the people posting that it wasn't the right place for them. You have to be a high achiever to succeed here otherwise you won't be happy. I have learned so much here.
Pros
Brilliant, collaborative environment. Constantly learning and being challenged.
Cons
grew too fast and lacking some infrastructure.
