I have been working at Greythorn full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Internal staff are able to run their own mini-business also known as a "vertical market" - they choose a niche area and learn the ins and outs of that market. Although Greythorn has been in the US for over 10 years, the acquisition by the FiveTen Group definitely opened the door for greater opportunity. In the last two years, they have climbed the ranks of all of their vertical markets, including Healthcare IT, with an unparalleled appetite to succeed.

Cons

There are still some kinks to work out as the business grows and roles change, but that comes with any business. As a global company, sometimes work/life balance is impacted due to the difference in time zones. If you know how to manage that, it's no problem at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Utilize communication channels to the fullest- consult your direct reports when working on projects and understand your role within the business. Many recruiters, sales people, managers, etc. are quick to adopt a "survival of the fittest" mentality, but with the right coaching - everyone can be successful and collaborative. Win, win!

    Pros

    Great commission structure for sales and recruiters. Career growth. Global company with relocation possibilities to the UK, Australia and many many more. Very competitive base salaries compared to other firms in the area.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are also some of the pros. Almost feels like they are a perpetual start-up, always changing processes, but at the end of the day, they’re just trying to improve the way they do business. Health Benefits could also be better and I would like to see a match in my 401k.
