Featured Review

I worked at D. E. Shaw & Co. - Investment Firm

Pros

Decent comp, generally nice and mostly smart people, trusted to get on with the job

Cons

Tenure matters more than it should

Current Employee - Marketing Manager

I have been working at G-Research full-time for less than a year

Pros

Working at G-Research has been like a breath of fresh air. You are surrounded by ambitious, driven and talented colleagues (some of whom are genuinely world-class experts in their field), which are... contagious traits that drive you to improve. More than this, you have the resources and backing to exceed your goals and have a real impact on the company. The salaries and benefits are excellent, there are ample development opportunities, and the scope of extracurricular activities (including the legendary company weekends away to Europe) is the envy of all my friends. Love my job!

Cons

Historically, I understand there have been some blockers related to security. These are barely noticeable now, continues to improve, and is heavily outweighed by all the other positives. Work from... homes opportunities have been limited but, again, are starting to increase.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you’re doing, keep listening to employees, and keep taking proactive steps to progress the company – and G-Research will continue to be a great employer.
