    I have been working at Greythorn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company is reliable in paying wages and expenses on time and without a hassle. They are quick to respond to questions or concerns. They are honest and provide all the details of upcoming projects as they know them.

    Cons

    My only concern was when they changed parent companies. The insurance benefits changed and the new options are not as good as the old ones.

    Pros

    The office environment is pretty nice and the coworkers are some great people. There is an opportunity to earn good money.

    Cons

    Management. The office is run with an "old school" micromanagement culture. Employees are looked at as expendable and their experience and expertise is not valued. They actually had a meeting specifically to address all of the bad reviews they were getting and launched an initiative where employees were intimidated by lawsuits if they posted anything other than a positive review on the company.

    Additionally, if you are a recruiter, look VERY closely at your commission statements. My check was consistently short and I had to constantly be talking to payroll to correct it. Just unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Leave. Seriously. The company has NOT GROWN in over a decade specifically because of the archaic, outdated management style.

    Appreciate the feedback.

    You're right; we used to micro-manage and by leadership who may or may not have appreciated staff as much as they should have.

    You're also right, I have seen... More

    I have been working at Greythorn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great commission structure for sales and recruiters. Career growth. Global company with relocation possibilities to the UK, Australia and many many more. Very competitive base salaries compared to other firms in the area.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are also some of the pros. Almost feels like they are a perpetual start-up, always changing processes, but at the end of the day, they’re just trying to improve the way they do business. Health Benefits could also be better and I would like to see a match in my 401k.

    Pros

    Greythorn gives you the ability and support to really dig into a vertical you are passionate about. They definitely are believers in hard work and hard-core recruiting by meeting the candidates, meeting with clients, meeting with industry professionals just to network, going to meetups/events, creating a reputation in your field--just getting out from behind LinkedIn to build a brand and drive work your way simply through reputation.

    -Everyone is passionate and wants to be here and loves recruiting
    -Leadership supports its recruiters/AEs, has the resources available to ensure they succeed, and offers a flexible environment that supports their varied work styles
    -The more you dedicate, the more success you will see. It's well worth the effort to build your business.
    -We are work hard, play hard, and honestly have fun together. Company sponsors many events to give us an opportunity to blow off steam and recharge.
    -Definite advantages to working for an international company
    -Leagues better than the last firm I worked for which was all heads down job board search, no personal connections, plug and place environment with no concern for quality--all bottom line with no benefit to you. Greythorn is the exact opposite and approaches recruiting exactly how it should be done to achieve the most success.

    Cons

    -Really direct and open bunch of people, everything in good jest, lots of respect (pro). Great for the outgoing types; might not be great for those who offend easily.
    -If you need to be micromanaged or would hate being out late occasionally having dinner with the best of the best in your vertical, it's probably not a great fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    -Doing a really good job creating an environment where employees want to stay and supporting those who do in any way possible. Keep it up.
    -Obviously weekly company happy hours are a must and should be scheduled immediately

    Pros

    Great follow through with processes. Someone is always available by phone if needed. Quick turn around to assist Corporate client with staffing needs. Caleb, Chris & Linda are terrific.

    Cons

    Helpful with looking for next gig, but nothing available. Not really a con.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you with the position at HOU, TX.

    I have been working at Greythorn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    True vertical specialization, solid team, strong company culture, honest and ethical.
    I love that I’m able to manage my desk like my own personal business. I can come up with new ideas and ways to impact the industry.
    Ideas are allowed to become reality – we truly have all the control in the world to create a space that is “ours”

    Cons

    Not as well known as they need to be yet. We need to get our name out there more outside of the Seattle market. We are starting to make a dent in the San Francisco market, we just need to keep building.

    Advice to Management

    Solid management team - really beginning to understand the importance of flexibility.
