    Pros

    I took a position at Grayling from a small boutique agency, which had very little opportunity for growth - it was the best decision I ever made. Grayling offers me constant learning opportunities. I love working for a global agency and collaborating across boarders on a daily basis. It's a fun fast-paced work environment, where hard work is acknowledged and rewarded.

    Kontras

    Working on a Microsoft based IT system can be challenging and frustrating at times. Many clients want to collaborate on other types of platforms, which are not allowed for security reasons.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue rewarding and offering opportunities to your best employees.

    Pros

    Excellent vacation time
    Flexible working schedule
    Opportunities to grow and excel in a fast-paced environment
    Supportive management
    Access to approachable, high-level execs in the company

    Kontras

    Disorganization and slow turnaround in certain departments, HR specifically.
    Over-servicing clients, allowing some bad practices to take shape
    Office technology needs updating

    Rat an das Management

    Get more help in the HR department. How things progress there is frustrating, especially for new hires.
    Empower your teams to collaborate across offices. Sometimes we still act like different factions based on location instead of one seamless pool of talent.

    „Account Executive”

    Pros

    Great environment if you're an independent, hard worker. Grayling offers the opportunity to rise up fast if you're good at what you do, but you must be a fast learner. GREAT benefits, work from home Fridays and unlimited vacation time. Very laid-back, comfortable office

    Kontras

    Lack of HR or structure, employees are overworked and under appreciated, lack of management and knowledge of employees workload. Grayling has culture issues that stem from merger and recent turn-over.

    Rat an das Management

    Value the low and mid-level employees, replace management when they leave, opt for a more organized reporting structure with limited accounts per employee

    Negative Prognose

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Grayling gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Unlimited holiday time (but very unstructured),
    Work from home Fridays
    Self starters flourish
    Strong female team

    Kontras

    - Basically no training on entry. Even entry level people are thrown into accounts and just expected to just put in the hours and figure it out. Attempts were made to add some level of training in recent times, but still the on-boarding process was awful.

    - Senior management is all over the place. Very out of touch with what is going on with staff and accounts, outside the flagship ones. Account managers expected to keep the accounts going with no input from management and then thrown under the bus if something happens. Cycled through a number of managing directors, all with no experience about how to run a business and deal with people. The VPs didn't seem motivated to win new accounts and would try and use employees contacts to get references rather than go out and seek some new accounts.

    Terrible atmosphere: People were constantly leaving and no-one new coming in. This led to some people having really big work loads with others scrambling around looking for things to make themselves look busy. Senior management were rarely in the office, choosing to work from home or what not, which meant that there would usually be a bunch of under 30s in the office at all times.

    - Accounts were constantly leaving and therefore people were being let go, by the luck of the draw of their account leaving because senior management didn't know what to do to keep them.

    - The recent merger was handled very badly so every single person from the original acquired company has left. Therefore there was very little experience among team members expected to run Enterprise accounts. Yet people formerly with Atomic (mostly consumer practice) were kept on because the new CEO knew them better.

    Rat an das Management

    Don't just hire former PR people to run a company. Bring someone with management and business experience to compliment the rest of the team.

    Put some faith in your employees and don't just rely on outside hires.

    Senior management shouldn't play favorites based on friendship and not talent.

    Pros

    While there are certainly some pain points within the organization I feel like many are losing sight of the positives. I was with Grayling for about four years and I feel that some of the negative reviews are a bit unfair. Some of the most talented people in the communications industry are at Grayling and I'm fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with them. My managers and coworkers were not only extremely professional but easy to get along with. Everyone is knowledgeable on all aspects of PR as well as other forms of communications such as Government Affairs and Crisis Communications.

    Kontras

    Growing by acquisition is tough. There were definitely some situations that could have been handled differently but I think that everyone is trying their hardest.

    Rat an das Management

    Stay focused on the clients and continue the great work.

    Pros

    Nice office, some genuinely nice and hard working people (junior level), a few big clients, cool history. The CEO is a nice and personable guy.

    Kontras

    Low pay, poor HR dept, very clique between teams, teams are more focused on personal success instead of agency wide success, very slow advancement, high turnover rate with employees and clients.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop prioritizing on competing with the top agencies and focus more on current clients and talent. Pay enough to survive in the city. Create a career path/goal timeline for employees.

    Pros

    - Certain teams can be extremely supportive of your career growth
    - Great benefits and flexibility with work from home
    - Will be given responsibility once it's earned

    Kontras

    - Not enough emphasis on company culture, especially for a growing company
    - Not strategic in selecting employees or clients
    - Promotions and work load not reflective of actual results
    - Not enough transparency from above

    Rat an das Management

    - Choose clients that actually sound like a pleasure to work with
    - Incorporate more strategy into everything you do: from hiring employees to signing on clients to pitching
    - Quality over quantity!

    Pros

    A very streamlined style of PR that cuts out a lot of the nonsense and offers a streamlined, quality approach to media relations. My team was particularly close and that fostered a secure, honest and fun-loving workplace.

    Atomic is the "anti-agency" and I love them for it.

    More pros:
    Job security--Atomic does fire people, but it has to be an extreme situation, and they work on issues with people individually before handing out pink slips.
    Access to top-levels--you sit right next to your VP so you can always ask questions and use your team as a resource.
    Work from home benefit
    Cell/internet reimbursement
    The week between Chistmas and New Year's off

    Kontras

    I left Atomic because I wanted to get out of agency PR.My team was particularly close, which wasn't always a good thing. Managers were often inconsistent and rude.

    More cons:
    Open seating environment, people can see your computer screen all day
    Teams work independently, meaning if the lead is doing something wrong, no one who can do anything about it will know
    No regular reviews, if it's time for a raise/promotion you'll have to ask for it

    Rat an das Management

    Keep the Atomic style, it's as functional as it is unique. Be consistent and professional by holding everyone to the same standard.

    Pros

    If you get a good team, you're gold. This is definitely the kind of place that if you show initiative, drive, and participate, your managers will notice.

    GREAT vacation + pretty good benefits

    They pay their interns

    Kontras

    Runs kind of like a start-up, not enough structure - which may be good if that's what you're looking for

    Lots of accounts at once - which still might be good if that's what you're looking for

    Rat an das Management

    Hire friendlier HR, plan more social events
