    I worked at Grey Healthcare Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    GHG tries to run like one big family. Of course, in a normal family, the 'mother' knows all her kids intimately, and that just can't happen in a big company. But Grey does try its best and it tries harder than most. There is a powerful corp d'esprit that means people go way beyond the call of duty. You work hard. And you play hard. If you mess around, or don't play as a team member, you are out the door. The people who have worked there, and who still meet up socially (in a way that doesn't happen at other agencies) are legion. And they all have the same positive view of the place. It has it's faults, sure, but it tries to fix them, and it wants to know how. And if they have anything to say to you, they will always say it to your face, and not behind your back.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is very hard to establish at GHG. My view is that people end up working late night after night and at weekends because either they are overworked or because they simply aren't very good at their jobs. Often it is a case of both. Grey is very accommodating. If you can take on more, they will give you more (and pay you more). But if you are drowning in work just ask for help and, if its warranted, the cavalry will come. That doesn't happen in other agencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help people to get their work done during normal office hours and encourage them to go home to their families at night.

    Interview Details

    Human Resources asked if I knew basic industry standard software. Got the impression the churned through people quickly and they were looking for an assembly line.

    Wasn’t sure this was a place I could really see myself for in the long term.
