    Former Employee - Senior Tax Associate III in Kansas City, MO
    Former Employee - Senior Tax Associate III in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at Grant Thornton full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I had several personal issues arise right after I was hired by Grant Thornton's tax department in Kansas City, MO. My mother passed away and right after that, I was told I needed immediate back surgery. I missed the majority of tax season due to the aforementioned issues, but I was allowed to record all my time as PTO and continue receiving full paychecks despite the HR manual stating new employees cannot begin using their PTO until after 90 days of employment. Because of my time away from the job, I was told at the end of April that I was not going to receive the manager promotion that I'd been told about during the interview process and that I was being let go so I could deal with my recovery and grief issues. My negative PTO balance was forgiven, my contractual obligations to repay the unamortized portions of the signing bonus and moving allowance I'd been provided were waived and I was kept on the payroll for an entire month with no responsibilities (I wasn't even required to come in to the office but I was allowed to keep my office during that time to look for a job) so I could search for a less demanding position and so that I would qualify for COBRA benefits. I could not have asked to be treated any better.

    Cons

    There were honestly no challenges in working for Grant Thornton. I guess if I had to say something for this category, I would say that having to deal with interns that were being paid hourly instead of on a salaried basis (and therefore were overworking themselves to the point of exhaustion and inability to perform their jobs adequately) was difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice I have for management would be concerning the aforementioned negative issue. I would suggest capping the number of hours employees paid on an hourly basis are allowed to work somewhat like the new rules governing medical residents not being allowed to work over 80 hours per week because it compromises patient safety. Having interns exhausted and driving home half asleep will eventually result in somebody getting into a serious accident, and when attorneys start looking for who has the largest pockets, they certainly won't be interested in the interns that are usually college students or their insurance carriers. However, I would be willing to bet they would look at the environment promoted in that person's workplace that allowed them to become that exhausted and drive while being half asleep and then file suit against the firm.
