    Pros

    The company is built upon strong ethics, with a strong vision for both business and staff development. Everyone in the firm has the opportunity to develop themselves and progress. The firm has some great client relationships who are strong supporters of GreySpark. There is diversity in the organisation - from research, to advisory and pure management consulting - which helps foster and grow client engagements....

    Cons

    At young firms there is always maturity required in processes and ongoing development. If you walk in to GreySpark expecting very clear process and structure you may be disappointed, however, there is opportunity for everyone to help shape the company as it grows - in the UK and globally.

    Advice to Management

    Ignore the recent spate of updates that have been posted on GlassDoor; they are spiteful and reactive to an unfortunate situation and based on mostly unfounded or incorrect information that is designed to be disruptive. The company is in a great position built on strong client relationships with a strong project opportunity pipeline.

    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.
