Okay for a first job
Client Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 22, 2018

Lots of noise amidst big changes
Associate VP (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 2, 2018
GLG is a reasonable place to pass time if you just want a job and you just want to get paid. However, this is not a place you should go if you want growth, or if you want to bolster your marketability outside of GLG.
Pros
free coffee and food
Cons
virtually no growth, limited career trajectory

College for Young Professionals
Research Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 30, 2018
GLG is a great opportunity for those who are early on in there career and want to pad their resume. Be ready to sacrifice work life balance-- you will be expected to work nights and weekends. The culture is changing rapidly all of the time. Be ready and willing to adapt to change and often. Experiences tend to vary depending on who your manager is. I was lucky for the most part. Other were not. There is a diversity problem but HR and Hiring is "working on it". Work can be monotonous and boring but the compensation is pretty good for Austin, Texas. This is not a long term job for most people. Most stay for 18 months to 2 years and then move on to something else.
Pros
Free lunches occasionally, beautiful office space in downtown Austin, coworkers are awesome
Cons
no work-life balance, monotonous work, constantly changing culture

Research Manager review
Research Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 22, 2018
Pro's:
Easy to be entrepreneurial
Great for networking

Cons:
In my experience, management and job culture has been poor, but this is inconsistent across the company as teams tend to operate in siloes
At its core, the research manager role is repetitive and requires a competitive spirit to be successful

Lack of Management
Senior Research Associate, Private Equity (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 27, 2018
Great place to grow your career, but the management has no idea what they're doing most of the time. They often say "try 50 things and 5 of them will stick" which isn't how a business should be run.
Pros
Lunch on Tuesdays, but that'll likely be eliminated with new budgets
Cons
No work life balance, I work every night.
