Absolutely no working from home. Zero work/life balance. Spent thousands on parties while making 100’s of people redundant. Not much training given. Board don’t listen to management running the business day-to-day thus resulting in fundamental staffing errors. Very incestuous.

Working at G-Research is a breath of fresh air. Unlike many other tech firms with a finance focus, they promote a very healthy work-life balance, with a fun but focused office culture.

You are givens freedom and trust to own your own area and are well-rewarded for good performance. Staff are treated like adults and there is still plenty of exposure to senior management despite the company's recent growth.


The company needs to continue to work hard to maintain this culture as growth continues but I have every confidence it will. Historically the levels of security have been high but this is being relaxed significantly.


It is also hugely inspiring being part of a business that is really pushing the boundaries of data and technology.


Alongside excellent remuneration there are numerous soft benefits like weekends away, summer/Christmas parties, regular socials, and sports clubs.


I look forward to coming to work every day and leave (at a very reasonable time) feeling happy and valued.
Pros
Work-life balance, great colleagues, fun atmosphere, remuneration
Cons
Continue to work with staff to find a good balance between security and flexibility

Exceptional bonus scheme + compensation, friendly/informal/fun culture, great work-life balance, free fruit, weekends away, great benefits

Lack of work from home currently but this is changing soon
