    Je travaille chez Grayling à plein temps

    Avantages

    A very dynamic atmosphere as it is an international young team. Ppportunities to grow and climb up the ladder if you are dedicated to work and to th team. Ideal to get early responsibilities for projects which is partly a reason for everyone's steep learning curve.

    Inconvénients

    Work is your life. Extra hours are not worth to be mentioned and working during weekends happens on a regular basis. There is a very firm team culture you need to fit in. A lack of senior colleagues results into not sufficient guidance and much "learning by doing".

    J'ai travaillé chez Grayling en Contrat Permanent (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Grayling is very small, so you get the opportunity to jump in on projects and learn things you wouldn't at a large agency.

    My direct manager and account director really let me take the reigns on projects I was interested in, and was very invested in my career growth.

    Inconvénients

    Cliquey -- in my office, there were definite cliques, even though there were only 6 of us. It was an open office space, but instead of sitting with your colleagues, there were a few girls who would lock themselves in a conference room and alienate themselves.

    There is absolutely no senior leadership. Our office has a managing director who is rarely there, because of family priorities. It's hard to equally prioritize family and career, but running the office suffered. There was no guidance for what the company's mission is, and where Grayling wants to grow. No mission or goal for the particular office.

    THERE IS NO CEO!!! Grayling is an international agency, headquartered in the UK, and the international branches' CEO is Paul Taaffe, but the US has no permanent CEO. While Paul is technically overseeing the US offices, pretty sure he's just letting them fail.

    The client roster is extremely small. Small to the point where it's detrimental. Grayling US has recently lost their largest client (ZTE -- which is also now banned from US operations) and there is very little drive for new business to make up for the loss of revenue. The loss of ZTE resulted in multiple senior employees getting laid off, and multiple employees quitting. Out of the 6 people in the office, two have left in the last 2 weeks.

    Not enough effort to secure new business. Most new business efforts I was privy to, didn't follow through. The Los Angeles MD insists it's fine but if your largest client leaves, why are you not trying your hardest to secure new business?

    Clients are served by multiple offices, but when the agency is so small, many things get lost.

    Conseils à la direction

    GET A US CEO!!!!!

    The LA office needs an MD who is actually in the office.
    Don't rely on one big client for the majority of an office's revenue. Clients leave all the time.

    Communicate the agency's mission and vision to employees.

    Have an office meeting at the start of the year to develop office goals.

    Keep clients. Proactively pitch new business.

    Keep clients in one office, to prevent miscommunication.

    Avantages

    Interesting range of regional, national and global clients which is continuing to grow
    Huge range of talent in the business and a great place to learn – corporate, consumer, public affairs, digital and creative teams all work together to share expertise.
    Fun people to work with and an open/relaxed office atmosphere
    Everyone is approachable
    Flexible home working and flexi-time options help with my work/life balance
    Opportunity to work with international network and travel
    Great to have ‘Finish Early Fridays’ and Thursday drinks!

    Inconvénients

    It’s unsurprising that as an agency the hours can occasionally be long, but the flexible working perks help make up for that. Generally, the hours stick to 9.00 - 18.00 and my colleagues and I rarely face PR horror stories! Although there was one particularly bad week in 2016….!

    Conseils à la direction

    There have been some strong hires recently following challenging times, but the boat is steady now. It’s an interesting time to be at a company that is pushing itself to be at the top of its game, which in turn is raising eyebrows across the industry.

    Really enjoy working with Sarah, Richard, Jonny, and Jo, who are open to and supportive of new ideas/initiatives, wherever they come from. The teams, not only in London but across the UK, are really pulling together in a way they weren’t a few years ago, so my advice would be continue to grow the company’s burgeoning collaborative culture and make it thrive!

    Avantages

    Excellent people to work with. Patient colleagues were fabulous teachers and helped all new starters get up to speed. Good considering there is quite a lot to take on board! Managers were fantastic, any downward pressure was held up well by them. The office in Bristol is/was beautiful, socials are well organised and regular and all kit/tech is up to date. Overall great start to the field. Also great team chemistry in the Bristol office. The business has great media relations acumen also.

    Inconvénients

    The business wasn't doing terribly well (as a whole, our office was more than fine), which may have contributed to the fact that progression wasn't clearly defined - or it may have just been me. Pay wasn't actually that bad to start out with but didn't go up from Trainee Account Exec to Account Exec level (which I later learned wasn't really the norm).

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the good work!
