Hear Direct From The GreyBians Who Were Once at Your Place
I graduated from NIT-Bhopal in 2011, and it’s been more than three and half years working with GreyB. When I joined here I didn’t know anything about this company, and when I look back now, it appears that my decision of joining GreyB was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I love the culture of transparency and openness at GreyB, even a person at lowest rank in the hierarchy can reach to the person at top rank if he/she feels the requirement. I also like the dedication and caring nature of the directors of GreyB, who take out time from their busy schedule and provide noble guidance to the people working at the ground level of the team. Talking about the work that we do here, it gives me sense of pride because of the importance it holds for the consumer. GreyB provided me the opportunity to work on projects in diverse technologies ranging from telecommunication to fabrication of IC, inertial sensors powering automatic detection in your mobile phones to genetic engineering. I have also experienced situations at GreyB when there was enormous pressure of deadlines, but our cultural DNA has already ingrained the never-give-up attitude that made me survive tough situations. After all, I knew one thing that there could be no gain without taking any pain in life. Last but not the least, I love the celebrations part of it, be it birthday celebration or festival celebration.
I have been with GreyB for the past six years. I still remember the day I joined GreyB – young and energetic college graduate but having no knowledge of IP/corporate culture. Since then GreyB has been the guiding light for me. At the start, I had a different perception of GreyB. However, with time I realized the real value of the time I spent at GreyB. GreyB has been a place of great learning for me. I have found a congenial atmosphere where I can experiment with different things. I even ended up filing a US patent after a lot of experimenting and it is now granted. My ideas, small or big, are valued here irrespective of my designation. The team members are very cooperative and helpful. Further, everyone wants and works to grow at a fast pace. Due to this, the work at GreyB pushes the employees to their limits to do and achieve things that seem impossible. This push at first seems like a burden but when you realize the competitive nature of the industry, the grilling comes as a necessary part of the job. In essence, I learned at GreyB, ‘Making money is secondary, making yourself worthy of earning it is primary.’ By the way, this is my own quote. At GreyB, I have done and achieved things which seem unachievable to an ordinary man.
Joining GreyB has been one of the best decisions I have made. The three years I have spent with GreyB have been the most productive and fun-filled years of my life because in these years, I have experienced more than I could expect or imagine – I did wild experiments, tasted glorious successes, faced miserable failures sometimes, but most importantly, I gained a tremendous amount of learning. GreyB gave me complete freedom to implement my ideas – there are no set-processes here, people devise their own solutions. It boosts your creativity and motivation when you see around yourself a bunch of creative, intellectual, and fun-loving individuals who inspire you and whom you can inspire. Every day here is uniquely challenging and quite memorable, and this is what I would like to share with all those who inquire about GreyB, with the objective that it will change their lives as it has mine.
I joined GreyB about 4 years back and this was my first encounter with the corporate world. Before joining, I had always heard about biases and politics in corporate offices. So, naturally I was little scared. But, to my surprise (pleasant surprise I would say), here at GreyB, the culture is so friendly and genuine. The journey so far here has been quite amazing or as we say internally, a roller coaster ride ;), from being just a college pass-out to a professional being. Now, when I look back, becoming part of GreyB has turned out to be the smartest decision I have made. Mostly because I always wanted my work to get noticed, not become just a name in the crowd. Here we get equal opportunities and treated equally irrespective of the hierarchy. I learned a very important thing while working here that ‘you have to make yourself worth noticing, own the work you do and do not wait for instructions’. One thing that I appreciate the most is that everyone is encouraged to have their own style of working and thinking. This kind of culture is hard to find and I was lucky enough to get it in my first job. Coming to the work we do, I feel proud to see that our efforts help big companies make their decisions and help in shaping the future of so many technologies. GreyB has become an important part of my life and I look forward to my coming years here!
It has been 9 months since I joined GreyB and I have to say it has been a great ride, every month I am working on a new challenge and up-skilling myself. Prior joining to GreyB and entering the IP world, I worked across different sectors such as IT, telecom, semiconductors, travel IT and supply chain industry and gained an amazing field experience in Europe and US region. Having completed my Masters in International Business from Grenoble Ecole de Management, France (FT Top 20 Global Masters), I worked with 4 companies in Europe before coming back to India. When I came back, my main challenge was “the mindset” of the people I would love to work with, I came across lots of opportunities but didn’t find those intriguing – I was still not sure but I thought to experiment it by joining GreyB, I believe that I made the right choice. I joined the client engagement team at GreyB and I can say this without any reservations that the job role is really dynamic, it culminates all of my previous job responsibilities and it pushes me to execute end-to-end sales cycle and getting things done in the right manner. Of course, you get all the weapons and necessary training to fight in the battlefield and get ready to put in lots of hours, it ain’t easy out here. What is unique about GreyB is its leadership style – managers have a positive and growth-oriented mindset here to guide you with the nuances of sales. You will be tossed up and down to get the reality check – trust me it’s hard but worth it! Another aspect of working here, is this place is way away from that “Micromanagement approach” – I have the freedom to reason and explore and it aligns well with the principle “Either you convince me or I convince you”. In nutshell, people listen to what you have to say and help you to improve the argument. Last thing, I want to say is, if you are just looking for a job with a flavor of mediocrity, GreyB is not the place – but yes if you like to be challenged and believe an easy way is not your way because you want to take the highway – then only join GreyB.
I am currently relishing the position of managing and designing the various software solutions developed at GreyB. When I first started my professional career in the IP domain, little did I know in just about 2 years I would be working on some of the most challenging and intriguing IP software and tools. GreyB has provided me a platform and a vision to think big and dream big. Right from the day when I began working on normal software to this day when I am overseeing the development of many impactful software suites, the journey has been fuelled by GreyB’s desire to do something path-breaking in the industry. As I also align myself with this dream, I am now responsible for endeavours that can shape the future of the company and the IP industry as a whole. The various IP tools that we are working on right now, and those that we have planned, at times gives me goose-bumps when I think of accomplishing them and the kind of impact they can make. But knowing the air of enthusiasm and pursuit of excellence that diffuses at GreyB, I am very optimistic of my endeavours. Without any exaggeration, I can state that the challenging environment at GreyB has made me realize my true capabilities. As I embarked on this journey, all the maths, data science and algorithms studied during college days fell in the right place like a Tetris game. I hardly noticed how I was transformed and it feels like I was destined to do this kind of work. Today I feel confident and exuberant about my future at GreyB with the belief that we are on course to revolutionize this industry for good. At the end, I would like to quote Jobs – “We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
The learning opportunities are immense because of the ideology of taking new initiatives. Transparent culture and freedom to try out new things is what I love the most. Some members organize workshops on topics like people management, customer understanding and intrinsic motivation; some people arrange presentations on technical awareness and patent laws; and some persons organized classes for learning Chinese. Not only this, some health-conscious individuals (we call them our fitness squad J) also started 5-minute exercise sessions to keep everyone fit. People have carved out their unique identity because of the talent boosting culture and initiatives they are taking. Everyone promotes creative techniques, skill development activities and looking for alternatives is in the air. In early days when I used to submit the task, most of the time my mentor asked me if I can come up with some more efficient way to do the same. Every time he pushed me to do something additional apart from the work assigned to me, like developing macros to reduce human effort. This helped me gain knowledge of software development while working in IP. If someone defines a job as just doing the assigned work and not taking personal initiatives to develop skills or grooming yourself professionally, it will be difficult to survive here. This place is for people who love to take challenges and have the guts to shape their path with intense effort.
