    Pros

    Challenging work, collaborative environment, great colleagues, interesting clients in the middle market space that continually face new situations and issues providing an opportunity to be a trusted advisor.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a struggle, pArticularly throughout the audit busy season. Employee turnover, while lower than industry averages, presents challenges and frustrations.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance is a real issue, particularly for the high performers. This leads to a higher level of turnover of the people you most want to retain.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview

    30 minute interview with two Grant Thornton employees (I had one partner and one manager). The interview was conversational and fairly laid back. It took place within the interviewer's office at Grant Thornton's Metropark office. The interview was one-on-one and predominantly resume/behavioral based questions. The entire day lasted about 5 hours with one hour designated to the interviews. The rest of the day was spent networking with various employees.
