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

    Pros

    They provide benefits and the Head of HR is understanding.

    Cons

    The partners have come from telecommunications and try to win projects in financial services, with no real expertise. The managers they assign are awful, with a selfish attitude. The Partners don't even present themselves in a professional manner. No real leadership or strategy to the firm. They keep employees on projects just for the sake of making money.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to trying to win projects in your actual field of expertise.

    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.
