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

    Pros

    The technology exposure is excellent, with the ability to have a healthy variety of work. Colleagues are fantastically smart and compensation is very competitive compared to similar companies in the industry.

    Cons

    The recent COVID-19 response has been poor, specifically the continued requirement causing the majority of staff to attend the office on a rota basis during Tier 4. While this is allowed due to technicalities it does not feel in the spirit of the guidance, nor appropriate for the situation in the country, when we are perfectly capable of carrying out our jobs in a WFH environment.

    I worked at G-Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Great teams and staff with a fairly good sense of community and 'all being in the same boat' to a certain level. -Wide ranging technology stack with exposure to exciting and new software and infrastructure -Lower and Middle management have been some of the best I have worked with.

    Cons

    A return to office policy that can only be described as bizarre in the middle of a global pandemic and the country ploughing towards lockdown. Over the past year it feels as if the company has transitioned into a hugely authoritive organisation where it's the employee base vs the executive management team. The company has been hugely productive whilst being remote

    Security has got consistently better since I have been at the company - continue on this path!
