    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.

    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

    Open-door policy gives junior staff the opportunity to get access to senior members of staff easily. Mutual respect between senior and junior staff. Innovative and challenging. Great work-life/life-work balance as long as you are efficient. Dynamic environment.

    Cons

    More flexible working schedule could be encouraged (WFH/flexitime).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work & encourage staff more to maximise their potential.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The work environment your describe is very much the one that the firm aspires to offer to all our colleagues, i.e. a place where: - we are all pushed to do better and be better thanks to collaboration and mutual support - ...
