    Pros

    You get exposed to a variety of industries and topics early on in your career. There is usually a lot of work available, and you can distinguish yourself from your peers if your willing to step up. The training programs at GT are solid, and there is no shortage of CPE (i.e., quarterly webcasts, annual training at Q Center, etc.). As a new hire, the Firm offers incentives for passing the CPA exam (usually a monetary bonus and paying for CPA Exam prep review material).

    Cons

    Compensation is not consistent with the rest of the market. Employees are typically paid lower than Big Four and the Firm justifies this by saying the hours are not as long as working at Big Four. Additionally, employees are paid less than people working at regional or local firms, but they work more hours. Basically if you work at GT, you will be paid less than Big Four and less than regional and local firms.

    The rewards for being a high performer are not consistent with the work performed. Usually the high performers are constantly utilized, everyone wants to work with them. This results in very little downtime and the work/life balance of these individuals tends to suffer. Additionally, the comp for high performers and average performers has been substantially the same. This raises the question, why go the extra mile if everyone will basically be paid the same (there may be a difference of roughly $3K to $4K for average performers and high performers?

    The message and direction delivered by local office management can be inconsistent year over year. There have also been shifts in the culture of the office over the past few years with the addition of a new Office Managing Partner. It is understandable that management styles may differ but the Firm should take caution when implementing changes that can be perceived as shifting the local office culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be mindful of changes to the local office culture. The culture of the firm is a major selling point for most people who work for the firm. Once that starts to change, people begin to re-evaluate their choices.

    Work harder to make compensation more consistent with the rest of the market.

    Work harder to retain your keep employees (i.e., via promotion, comp, time away from work, etc.).
