    I worked at GreySpark full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work experience on the CV. If you can't get a job anywhere else, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Agree with all cons mentioned in previous reviews, all accurate. Company still acting like a start-up. Poor recruitment process. Low calibre hires, internal gossip and politics is the culture here. It's clear the positive reviews have been written by HR or senior management. I am sure a "positive" review will pop up shortly after this one to test my theory. Most key employees move onto bigger companies and...

    Thanks for your feedback. At GreySpark we rightly pride ourselves for our honesty and transparency. GreySpark still maintains a very entrepreneurial element which we feel remains a draw to prospective and current employees. As per Glassdoor policy, none of the reviews here ...

    I worked at GreySpark full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working mainly with Tier One banks. Good support system from Sales and Senior Management with regular meetings on progress. Flexible and pragmatic attitude, consultants encouraged to develop by taking on greater challenges, alternative assignment considered if the current one not suitable. Library of material from which to learn new skills and opportunity to contribute to published reports.

    Cons

    Workload can be high sometimes as governed by the client requirements which are not always clear until project started. Can end up unassigned between projects.

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

    Pros

    Working within Greyspark has been the opportunity to work with highly skilled professionals, always ready to give a hand and getting a quick access to Tier 1 banks. The salary was quite low at the beginning but they kept their promise, raising it 2 in a year and a half. I always felt the management was there if needed and I had all the support and mentoring I required. Any job can sometimes be boring and you can not ask...

    The first weeks on the bench were not really fun but fortunately, it did not last long!
