    Positive, but a difficult uphill battle

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsG2 analytics has come a long way while i've been there, and the ability to custom engineer products and build new services has definitely been a great opportunity. We've been able to build some very advanced capabilities and within the analytics group we have strong support.

    It's been a very positive experience and there have been many times where i've been extremely proud of what has been accomplished.

    ConsUpper management can't seem to get out of there own way. Departments are siloed, and you feel like you are constantly battling internally over every little detail. Account and project management teams seem very redundant and both groups seem to think that they should have the final say in any project at any time. Client access is generally restricted, which leads to a very difficult development cycle, and more than once, ended up with subpar deliverables because account teams were not equipped to communicate technical information.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop in-fighting and integrate the departments. Create synergy not animosity, and don't be afraid to try new things. Invest a little capital into the company and create some new capabilities, G2 is well positioned in the industry to take over emerging areas in digitial, but that won't last.

    Typical big agency experience. Fortune 500 clients. Lots of great talent. Tight deadlines and a great office.

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe pay is competitive and you work with amazing people. Agency work isn't for the faint and especially not in NYC. Work can be long and hard, but it depends on what department you're in. The office is in a great location.

    ConsIt's a big agency, so lots of people coming and going and so sometimes it's hard to make a connection with folks. As a contractor, it's even harder because I'm guessing that people are so used to seeing new faces that they don't really bother to try to get to know you. Sometimes it's hard to stand out in the crowd. There are some young people there who have only worked at Grey and only know that way, so they aren't the nicest, but that's the exception.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would do a bit more to welcome people and create a more personal work environment. It really was just a job to me.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's an entrepreneurial and controlled environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat culture where you can build strong relationships.
    Entrepreneurial- everyday is never the same.
    Excellent Quality of Life compared to most ad agencies
    Room for growth if you show it

    ConsPolitics with upper management and or lack of communication
    Salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn order to better G2 I think we are in need of offering higher salaries. I strongly believe that "you get what you pay for". In light of this and where I am in the company- I can say that this is something they are working on.
