Great Company
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 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, NYJuly 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.

Organization mainly hires inexperienced kids.

Unethical and unprofessional
Career Advisor (Former Employee) –  Germantown, MDJune 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.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Short breaks, overwhelming, unprofessional, unethical.

Not a great company
Trainer/Instructor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 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, NYJuly 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.

Run For Dear Life
Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Jamaica, NYMarch 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.
Pros
none
Cons
unclear goals, poor commission structure/pay out

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 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.
Pros
Can make a difference serving the NY population
Cons
Constant change in direction and policies because it is a contracted organization

Busy Family Environment
Business Services Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIOctober 15, 2015
Grant Associates was a busy environment with a high expectation for efficiency and productivity.

The hiring model is unique and effective; about 90% of my coworkers were high performers, personable, and just nice. In fact, they hire with a high priority on nice.

The hardest part of the job was adapting to an ever-changing environment, but made much easier by the delightful staff.

It seemed the company is extremely tight with salaries and spending on employees. I didn't like the noon meetings with no food provided. And the all-staff meeting provisions were minimal
Pros
Nice Coworkers with Excellent Work Ethic
Cons
Extremely Tight Salaries
