    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Greythorn as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have some very good Information Technology clients. The field representative works with high energy and will get feedback to you quickly after client site interviews. The paperwork process is fast and easy.

    Cons

    Poor benefits plan and if you decide you want it, it will cost way too much compared to other placement firms. The field representative tends to forget names (for example, who you are) after you have been placed. When your assignment ends, there is little urgency to get you redeployed--you are basically on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Stay more in touch with the consultants and their hiring managers at client sites so you know what's coming up. When an assignment ends, put more effort into a redeployment plan.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Greythorn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free fruit, great bonuses and top billers staff days out. Not much else to say.

    Cons

    Corporate psychopaths as managers. No training. Poor Infrastructure. Don't get paid commission until client pays. Bad office environment. Very fake.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
    Give proper training and support
    Follow up on serial complaints
    Treat staff how you'd like to be treated
    Upgrade your IT database and infrastructure
    Hire managers who can manage people
    Pay commission up front not after client has paid
    Transform your culture
