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

    Pros

    I have never worked anyplace where the company worked harder to create a good workplace. Great training opportunities, including the opportunity to see what different teams do via Thirsty Thursdays. Lots of thought is given to providing fun experiences for everyone. Monday morning meetings and Monday 5 newsletters allow management to share what's going on with the full employee population. Great benefits, including paid time off. Fabulous intern program.

    Cons

    There should be more attention paid to providing performance reviews and establishing career paths for all employees.

    Pros

    This is a great position for someone right out of college looking to get into Med Ed and work with a great team

    Cons

    At this level, there is not much travel, if any at all. Same day to day tasks but meetings keep it interesting.

    I worked at greyhealth group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked normal hours, better than other agencies

    WPP benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    This was one of the worst agencies I've worked for.

    Had some great creatives, but for the most part, nothing too innovative or special happening at this agency. Senior management is lacking and that explains the extremely high turnover in both GHG and Phase V (both owned by greyhealth group).

    Only after I left did I find out my manager had been complained about for being "emotionally abusive" and had multiple people leave under their supervision. Clients had also complained about them and I was not made of aware of this..very deceitful.

    Advice to Management

    Out with the old, in with the new

    Pros

    Location of the office. Trying to think of another pro...there isn't one! Check the overall rating- not many pros.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership. Toxic environment. Lack of transparency. Don't come here. Not worth the misery and frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Agree with the February 18 and March 15 reviews- it's really terrible to work at Ghg and Phase Five. Save yourself. This will be focused on the horrible Phase Five leadership. Unqualified individuals who blame everyone (including the CEO) for their terrible management. Leadership is part of a "secret club" where no one else's opinion matters, even if for the good of the company. It's the consensus- ask any current employee. ZERO transparency. Extreme dishonesty. Leadership are horrible managers as well. Never address any issues brought to them. Look at the turnover. No one wants to stay- good luck to any new hires!

    I worked at greyhealth group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Only a few decent people otherwise work here for a year and leave

    Cons

    Worked long hours. No recognition. My own manager talked behind his employees back then smiled at them when they came in later on in the day. Managers that should not even be managers in the first place. Each department huddles to themselves and only uses others when they need somethong

    Advice to Management

    give better opportunities to those that actually finished school than those with not even a degree

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

    Pros

    None any more. This is the second data breach in less than 1 year--this one of employee personal information!

    Cons

    The new president has done nothing to secure the troves of information on clients and its employees. Today, yet another Grey Health Group data breach occurred and I got notice that my personal information including SSN, date of birth, full contact info--everything on me--has been stolen again by a third party entity.

    Advice to Management

    Secure your systems! For goodness sake, have you not learned anything at all from last year's 2017 Petya-like data breach of company and client proprietary information?

    I worked at greyhealth group full-time

    Pros

    Location of office. Can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    Horrendous leadership. Terrible managers. Majority of the senior leadership team members are not qualified to do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    A stressful environment where senior leadership sends snarky emails and has verbal public flip outs. "Transparency" is a joke. You come with an issue, particular people will pretend to care and address. When you follow up, there is always some excuse about why it wasn't addressed. The excuses are tiring. Important meetings with employees are frequently cancelled and never rescheduled. Consensus is that senior management and leadership dismisses those employees who do care about their work or have ideas to improve things. Zero growth potential unless you're going to report to one of the good ones (very few of these individuals). Morality is low, everyone walks around looking miserable. High turnover. There were internal meetings regarding negative reviews online and now these reviews have now been removed. Salaries are not competitive. Money for potential raises goes to new lobby furniture, coffee mugs, pizza, and hot chocolate. It is important to do nice things for your employees but the majority would rather skip frequent parties and pizza lunches and get compensated instead.

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

    Pros

    - Strong creative, studio, tech and editorial teams

    Cons

    - Very, very weak PM and Acct Directors (in terms of leadership capabilities and overall knowledge of work functions)

    - Director-level leadership does not teach/train their subordinates and frequently acts on emotions rather than factual occurrences

    - Directors do not have their employees back (in other words, they are weak-willed and pushovers when toughness and grit are required)

    - Rather than promote and reward quality of work, fiscal responsibility on accounts and solid internal communication, the corporate culture is laden with 'politicking' and showers accolades on those who are well versed in the art of brown-nosing

    - Disturbingly high turnover

    - Entirely too many internal meetings (most are pointless) which interferes with daily work output and hinders the ability to leave the office at a reasonable hour on most days -- this really adds up on a weekly basis

    Advice to Management

    Relieve yourselves of duty and let more competent, logical, mentally-capable leaders take the helm.
