    I worked at Grey Group

    Pros

    External GREY group/WPP management are professional and supportive, but powerless to intervene. Quite close to the MTR. Great stationery shop just over the road.

    Cons

    Talented local team ground down by a toxic culture of fear. Bullying management, bullying clients and a holding company keen on profit at any cost does not make for a happy company. Grey Dpi exhibits a wilful lack of recognised agency process, professionalism, care over creative execution and an almost pathological disregard for employee rights and wellbeing. The company makes money, true, but the cost is the souls of the staff. You have been warned.
