    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.

    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

    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.
