Gyro Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
A gyro or gyros (; Greek: γύρος, romanized: yíros/gyros, lit. 'turn', pronounced [ˈʝiros]) is a Greek dish made from meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Like shawarma and tacos al pastor, it is derived from the lamb-based doner kebab. In Greece it is now most often pork or chicken, whilst beef, chicken, and lamb are common in other countries. It is typically served wrapped or stuffed in a pita, along with ingredients such as tomato, onion, and tzatziki sauce.
Leslie Barrie mentioned, "The gyro’s main nutritional downside is not its pita bread or tzatziki sauce: The meat is the real doozy. The ground lamb, beef or both used in gyros aren’t necessarily of the leanest variety."
Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"The job is a job. But its more of a talk down by all the men there. That a woman cant do this type of work.i left bc of the comments everyday. And my coworker being a jerk and his sexually comments towards the women there. Cons: Everything about this job is a cons."
Upper Management (Former Employee) says"You will lose your job as soon as your client leaves!! Which they leave all the time. The agency has NO MONEY to afford payroll and fire employees to stay afloat."
Manager (Former Employee) says"Don't waste your time unless you desperately need to build your resume. There are all of the makings to be a great company, but it just is not. Unfortunate, really. Cons: Work life balance is non existent"
A longtime manager (Former Employee) says"Gyro lacks coordination of operations. There is no operations management - no logistical means to an end. Each location rolls off on it's own, doing it's own thing, and not able to take advantage of leveraging a coordinated effort between locations. This is because between the CEO (the chief creative thinker in name only), and the CFO (the guy who thinks cash management is the way to build a business), there is nobody to manage the things that have to happen to make everything work. Some of the individual locations work despite this. Some (Denver, London, NY) suffer from poor management styles. Long hours and subservient attitude expected. Cons: No real operations management."
Cashier (Former Employee) says"I used to get a lot of tips cause I can work under pressure and even if there’s a lot of people to attend I can still keep my cool and be nice. Some of the customers told me that and that my personality was perfect to work at a restaurant."
Delivery (Former Employee) says"A typical day at work would consist of customers ordering food and I would have to wait until the food was made to deliver it and drop it off at the location given. It was sometimes confusing because some locations weren't specific enough but I would figure out what to do."
Former Employee - Creative says"I worked at gyro full-time for less than a year Cons: What a time to be alive. To be disrespected on a daily basis, to be forced to do sub par work, to work alongside strategists who say everything is amazing yet have no idea what they're doing, to be yelled at on a monthly basis and then be taken into reviews and be told you're the problem. To have some managers who get in at noon and others who leave at 4pm. All smiles on the surface. Total misery underneath. What few clients they have left don't respect the agency due to how they present themselves. If you want to feel undervalued and be forced to do terrible work by someone who was last considered relevant by the industry 15 years ago, welcome in. You get to raid the agency bar in compensation for checking in your brain and your soul at the door."
Former Employee - Creative says"I worked at gyro full-time for less than a year Cons: high turnover cliques understaffed no process Work is boring Awards submissions are lies some people seem to live at the office and work 24/7, while other people get by doing nothing. very unbalanced fake and inaccurate client lists"
Former Employee - Creative Director says"I worked at gyro full-time for more than 3 years Cons: No real leadership No real culture remaining No real commitment to creative beyond a few brave souls No real growth in many years No real grasp on Gyro's accelerating decline"
Former Employee - Creative says"I worked at gyro full-time Cons: Senior leadership is fairly clueless and dictatorial. It's a very volatile atmosphere, which doesn't make being creative very easy. Also, your voice is not really heard. Or if it is heard, it's not taken seriously. No real business wins, and fake ads for awards shows are a real thing."
Former Employee - Accounts Manager says"I worked at gyro full-time for more than a year Cons: If I could give this a company a 0, I would. It is a sinking ship and I hope people leave before it’s too late. So much toxicity and it is not a good place. The good people are leaving and the bad ones are being left behind."
Former Employee - Manager says"I worked at gyro full-time Cons: Spineless leadership No vision No discipline No collaboration Over-promising and under-delivering C-Suite is completely disconnected from the rest of the agency Too focused on profitability as a line item on a spreadsheet instead of investing in tools and resources to get the job done and as agreed to with clients Kings of the bait and switch with employees Hasn't earned the right to be called an agency"
Current Employee - Senior Account Manager says"I have been working at gyro full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Management has lost their way. Large egos and small competency. What they say and what they do are two different things."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at gyro full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Overworked, Upper Management only looks out for their friends, Underpaid"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at gyro full-time Cons: Absolutely no structure. No on-boarding process. Company downsized and got rid of the good performers, then people started quitting left and right because they inherited the work of the people that were laid off. The agency also for some reason, hires the most mediocre account folks on the planet (not sure if said people don't listen, or just old school). Additionally, despite being part of a big holding company, gyro is still a small agency, so expect to wear many hats. I say this is a con because they don't necessarily tell you this upfront. If you're coming from a big agency, my advice is to stay away from gyro, even if they're offering you a title upgrade"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at gyro full-time Cons: I don’t even know where to start. After the acquisition, everything at gyro changed. The culture, the work, the requirements. What used to be a collaborative family turned into a mid-life crisis, start-up feel, corporate nightmare, to say the least. After 8+ years in the industry, I’ve never seen such a tank in a business like what happened to gyro."
