    I have been working at Grayling full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for largely excellent and high-profile clients across a range of sectors. Work is varied – and therefore interesting – and success is recognised and rewarded. You get significant client-facing responsibilities at all levels, as well as training and genuinely valuable line-management which all assists personal development.

    My team colleagues are a pleasure to work with – diligent, fun, intelligent, creative, empathetic – and there’s an ever growing culture of inter-team working which engenders a positive environment in the entire office.

    Annual reports, client retention, new business, new hires etc. all evidence a business that has excellent people, which is full of energy and which is thriving.

    Cons

    As with most agencies, sometimes there’s overtime. However, colleagues are always on hand to offer support and overtime is recognised by team and senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recruiting, retaining and encouraging exceptional people. It’s highly valued that Sarah Scholefield and Richard Jukes operate a truly open-door policy and are excellent at communicating their vision to employees.
