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

    Pros

    Good client base, people are generally nice

    Kontras

    Zero structure to the place. Bosses were apathetic to team and at times activley hostile. Place was basically run as a small private company, but instead of having active, interested owners, the person who should have played that role was completely checked out and almost never in the office. Responsibility devolved to people who didn't want it and pretended it wasn't there.

    Rat an das Management

    Think beyond what's on your current client to do list, foster team spirit and professional development.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Grayling gearbeitet (Über 8 Jahre)

    Pros

    I worked at Grayling for several years and it was an overall positive experience for me. I left the company grateful for my time there and with lifelong connections both professionally and personally.

    Opportunity, growth and reward abound for those who are determined and play well in the sandbox with others. The majority of my Grayling colleagues (both on the front lines and in management) exhibited guts, creativity, teamwork and a conscientious work ethic day in and day out. I gained continual growth opportunities and increased my knowledge and skills immensely.

    Grayling does more to promote work/life balance than any company I worked for in the past. The generous U.S. benefits package is unrivaled in the communications industry.

    It’s a good time to be at Grayling. New energy is emerging after a period of growing pains from expanding the U.S. region. Global leadership is ambitious, committed and connected like never before. More multi-market accounts are happening across all regions. My role kept me in the bigger picture each day where I could see the great things on the horizon for this organization.

    Kontras

    The U.S. mergers over the past couple of years were tough in the couple of offices where local talent and leadership were merged. Whether you are the acquiring or the acquired, mergers could always go better. No doubt we could have done a better job in those offices.

    Consolidating and rolling out new processes and systems in large scale takes time and it is understandable that it can feel like things are not moving fast enough if you are not involved in that process.

    From my vantage point and experience, the people who keep it productive and work respectfully with others are plentiful in Grayling’s 50+ offices.

    Rat an das Management

    My advice is to everyone. Look for bright spots instead of shortcomings. Replicate the bright spots and ask how you can be a part of the solution where needed. Use the available resources to reach out and work with colleagues around your region and globally – the opportunities in this organization are limitless.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Grayling (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Grayling SF offers one of the purest meritocracies I’ve seen in my career. For entrepreneurial people who demonstrate passion, hard work and raw talent, growth is rapid and unbounded. Specific examples: Intern to Account Manager in 3 years, AAE to SAE in under one year. Unlike many organizations where promotions only come when someone above leaves, Grayling promotes frequently based purely on individual performance.

    Additionally, Grayling has a family-friendly culture. Benefits such as unlimited vacation, work from home Fridays and a flexible work environment allow for greater work-life balance.

    Kontras

    Following a merger and some office reconfigurations, Grayling is in a period of change. While that can be scary, it is also presents a unique opportunity to shape your own path, grow rapidly, and make a meaningful contribution to your team.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue building synergies between global teams

    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

    Pros

    At one time UK and Western Europe business was strong with top name brands and companies.

    Kontras

    With fall of the Europe, management finally looked at the hodge podge of acquisitions it made in the US. It is just a mess. Management changes every two years and people come and go. Bad place to start a career.

    Rat an das Management

    Sell the profitable areas of the business.

    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.
