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

    Pros

    Friendly teams, with incredibly bright colleagues. Management respect and heed advice and direction from technical teams. Industry leading compensation, would be hard to beat unless you're willing to sacrifice your life outside of work. Great support throughout virus period.

    Cons

    Security restrictions, but these are improving. Working from home was previously restricted, will have to see how this is handled after the virus period.

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

    Pros

    Colleagues are the best in the business Freedom to make own decisions - management is there to guide, advise and coordinate rather than to set research Huge resources/compute Compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Security still a minor hindrance - it's getting better all the time though

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

    Pros

    Endless social events continuously lined up throughout the year to keep you on your toes, a mixed bunch of intellectual minds who you can always bounce ideas off, and a place where new approaches to work are encouraged. There are very few other companies out there like this.

    Cons

    At times you may feel under valued, however, these times you're often given reassurance. Workload is never the same day to day, if thats your thing, this isn't for you!

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

    Pros

    G-Research is a fun and exciting place to work at right now. The people are some of the smartest in the world, and the business is growing quickly as it moves from strength to strength. The culture is very encouraging and has a good work/life balance. If you enjoy solving difficult problems with smart people, it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    Historically the business had more stringent security measures, and some of the traces of that are still around. However, it's clear there's been a big cultural shift away from that, so I expect things to change in the future.

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

    Pros

    Brilliant work/life balance, superb culture with lots of extra perks to feel valued such as a summer ball and weekends away, opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in the world and really make a difference, in my role specifically I get to hire and meet some of the smartest people and play a part in their journey to join the G-Research family

    Cons

    There aren't many cons, but flexible working would be up there if I was pushed to choose something. Having said this, it is still relatively flexible when needed and managers are open to discussion on things such as taking a later lunch to go to the gym when it is less busy! Which I think is great.
