J'ai travaillé chez G-Research à temps plein
Some very smart people to work with
Good pay and benefits
Rules limit hours in the office so engineers generally have to leave before 8pm
Lack of email outside of the office means getting urgent emails that disrupt your holiday is not an issue
Very draconian constraints in the name of security make getting work done extremely hard (rubber stamping from various levels of management to make otherwise-straightfoward changes, mandatory spyware-like tools that cause performance issues on workstations and servers, purposeful knowledge siloing, ...)
Lack of personal phones in the office and work-from-home options means office-hours life admin can be difficult
Conseils à la direction
Make empowering the people beneath you a priority and listen to them when they advise that your decisions are getting in the way of their work
J'ai postulé via une agence de recrutement. J'ai passé une entrevue à G-Research.
I'm french. A head-hunter got my CV to G-Research. One week later, still through the head hunter, G-Research was "impressed" by the academic background, then wanted to submit a 90 min test. No any communication with G directly, even if I tried through social networks...
I worked hard for the test, whereas I didn't get precise idea about the questions. I just knew that there were five parts, and I really was encouraged to read the first part of a book.
Result: I didn't understand at all the spirit of the test, and hard working with the book was completely useless for the test. Unfortunately I didn't get it, and the result was still announced by the head-hunter.
