Career Advisor (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 12, 2019
It is always have a company with new ideas to come in to introduce employers to new ideas. Grant Associates is all about the people working for them and being open to many things. I love how diverse the company is as well. The company gives a down to earth professional feeling.
Friendly company, open to new ideas
Short lunch, and slight disconnect with demographics and how they differ from area to area
Rodman (Former Employee) – Flemington, NJ – March 21, 2019
I enjoyed driving to all the places where we did surveying. I also enjoyed doing the math when I got to reduce the notes. I a typical day, we would drive to 3 or 4 places. We would take a half hour for lunch and eat our sandwiches. I was the rodman, so I didn't use the transit. I would have liked to have learned how to use the transit.
Event Coordinator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 19, 2019
It was an ideal job to have. However, the position was considered to be a revolving door. Worked with a small team. The only flaw is poor quality upper management. Lack of communication and favoritism from management.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – August 7, 2018
This company is based around providing their employees with a family like feel and they are always one call away. The possibilities are endless here. There is ample room for promotion and they are fair when it comes to compensation.
Scanning Specialist (Former Employee) – Harlem, NY – July 11, 2018
The workplace was very clean and coworkers are very friendly. Tasks are very easy to understand. The hardest part was when the machines would break down and was unable to continue with your task. overall a very enjoyable environment.
Career Advisor (Former Employee) – Germantown, MD – June 27, 2018
1. Many companies face employee morale issues, but, when taken to extremes, it can turn a company into a "toxic workplace" one that's organizationally dysfunctional. 2. Company unethical based. 3. Manager reward those who are skilled at playing politics even though they never make productive contributions. 4. Manager are always out of the office or hiding in their offices or unable to be reached. 5. When you propose something new and innovative, it gets shot down in a hurry because it's "not something we normally do." 6. Avoiding transparency, leaders refuse to discuss important subjects, including failed projects. 7. Toxic environment has taken hold—and likely can't be reversed.
Short breaks, overwhelming, unprofessional, unethical.
Trainer/Instructor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 8, 2018
Grant Associates is not a great nor a good company to work for. I'd stay very clear of this company. It has no clear defined culture and the VP of Innovations at the Harlem location has no idea about management nor effective leadership. Please stay away from Grant.
Productive, friendly atmosphere but fast paced environment
Career Services Recruiting Advisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 25, 2017
The typical work day was hectic and I learned a lot about workforce development. The management was supportive of junior staff and the culture was very relaxed and friendly. The hardest part of the job was trying to help the clients but they did not want to help themselves. The most enjoyable part was seeing a client succeed.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Staten Island, NY – May 25, 2017
I wore many different hats at Grant because I was eager to learn more than just my role. I enjoyed working with my boss and co workers as every one had a positive attitude. the work is very easy, common sense and at times could be very fast paced.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Jamaica, NY – March 17, 2017
If you do well with functioning in ambiguity, nepotism and poor management well hop on-board. While your day to day may seem like pretty much the average office environment, there-in lie the challenges of working in a bureaucratic regulations. The immaturity of mid-management often lends to poor moral on the work-floor as they aren't experienced or equipped to handle certain issues.
Work here because you believe in the mission to place a workforce
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 26, 2017
Grant Associates is a company that operates under their funders' expectations. It changes direction as instructed and may not always be transparent. Grant is a good company to work for and is making strides in the care of their employees. The mission is really awesome and a great place for someone to start their career.
Can make a difference serving the NY population
Constant change in direction and policies because it is a contracted organization
Youth Services Manager (Current Employee) – Tulsa County, OK – March 16, 2016
Nice group of people to work with and their are opportunities for advancement. At this time they are grant funded. However they work to help people get jobs and short term training. There services are at no cost to the public.
