Featured Review

Former Employee - Consultant

I worked at APCO Worldwide full-time

Pros

-Diverse, collegial colleagues -Global reaches makes for flexible work schedules, a variety of projects and clients -The good managers are great managers, but not always the case -On a trajectory... of growth

Cons

Success depends on manager, office.

Advice to Management

Make management a lateral move rather than a promotion/vertical move. Some folks are meant to lead others, some folks don't even want to.

Current Employee - Senior Account Executive

I have been working at Grayling full-time for more than a year

Pros

I took a position at Grayling from a small boutique agency, which had very little opportunity for growth - it was the best decision I ever made. Grayling offers me constant learning opportunities. I... love working for a global agency and collaborating across boarders on a daily basis. It's a fun fast-paced work environment, where hard work is acknowledged and rewarded.

Cons

Working on a Microsoft based IT system can be challenging and frustrating at times. Many clients want to collaborate on other types of platforms, which are not allowed for security reasons.

Advice to Management

Continue rewarding and offering opportunities to your best employees.
