NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Actually, GLG is a scam - I received an invitation from one of their representatives to do consultations for GLG, as have many others and was left with the impression that opportunities would be presented to me provided that I submitted applications for open consulting projects.
I have already supposedly been 'promoted' to the 'educator' level, still applying for consults, and I believe there are federal statutes governing this, if a company presents you with an opportunity and offers you a position, it is partly their responsibility, provided you are doing your part in whatever agreement you have with them, to ensure that you are benefiting from your efforts and being compensated for your efforts.
If you fall for this scam and you do research for their company for alleged consulting opportunities, make sure you send them a very large bill (my invoice totaled more than $40,000) for whatever research you did for them to do that, calculate the number of hours and multiply those hours by whatever hourly rate they set for you.
Also, if you fall for this scam, do not be surprised if your account is deleted immediately after inquiring about the status of consultations for which you have submitted acceptance applications. And as for anyone from GLG who sees this, which I am certain at least a few of you have, if you don't want to be exposed as a scam, or for fraudulent acts as punishable by law, such as your illegal insider trading scam from 2007 don't lie to the people with whom you make contact for your bogus consulting projects.
