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

    Pros

    Zero actually sub zero. Apply elsewhere.

    Cons

    I have just been informed by a former colleague that Fred Ponzo, the managing partner, incorrectly accused me of writing previous reviews. I did not write the reviews but now must advise anyone interested in working for this company that they would be making a huge mistake. I left after being harassed and bullied which resulted in high blood pressure which was purely caused by receiving abusive, sexist text messages from...

    Advice to Management

    Advise Freddie to just go back to France. It is time to hang up his boots now. He lives in the past and is clueless about the present and how the banks work. His insolent behaviour cannot be blamed on his nationality as was done so by another Partner. Nationality is not an excuse to be a rude, sexist person. He cannot tell girls to ‘just shut up during meetings’ and ‘yap a little less’. I was not a Jack Russell that...

    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.
