    I worked at GreySpark full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is on its way to liquidation. If you have a choice between killing yourself or working here, my only advice is 1 minute of pain is better than an eternity of suffering.

    Cons

    This company is a complete joke, if you have recently applied don't waste your time. Honestly find something else. The partners are imbeciles and they are happy to interview and waste your time when they have no current projects in the pipeline. They are likely to offer you a job after 3 long interview rounds and then rescind your offer when they realize they can't afford to pay you. Office location is really bad, good...

    Advice to Management

    Hire more incompetent business development managers so the company finally goes into liquidation.

    First of all, thank you for your review and advice. However, several of your comments appear to be factually wrong. First, no-one can call herself/himself a "Former Employee - FinTech Analyst" as: - this job title never existed in GreySpark - all the members of the FinTech ...

    I have been working at GreySpark full-time

    Pros

    GreySpark has a strong culture in terms of ideas and knowledge sharing. People have the opportunity to contribute, to be challenged intellectually and to learn, leading to a natural tendency towards thought leadership and being in step with the current (and future) challenges that our clients have to contend with. GreySpark is an international firm with a client-centric approach and is able to successfully partner...

    Cons

    Although GreySpark has a comprehensive career ladder framework which caters for people that can progress via a "Management / Commercial" track or an "Expert" track, continued investment in helping people to think of themselves as a "business owner" and not just an "employee" will help to define the mentality of whether people embrace the opportunity with GreySpark as a business opportunity as opposed to just a day job.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the long term objectives in to manageable short term targets on a more rigorous basis, aligned to specific regions. (Each region tends to be at a different stage of corporate development to the others, so a one size fits all rule book does not always work).

    I worked at GreySpark full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good opportunities for project pitching.

    Cons

    No guidelines and training. No effective performance review. Limited work experience. Non-effective management on onsite employees. Limited promotion changes or biased treatment on employees. Less leadership for the manager.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay more attention to your employees and the "field" that the firm presents to be professional.
