    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent work life balance (depending on department), they will send you to trainings and pay for your CPA, CFA and other designations as long as you pass the exams, great people

    Cons

    The raises are awful and promotions are normally based on time served vs merit. The quality of your work life depends on the group you work in, as some partners are great leaders and others are not.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Grant Thornton.

    Interview Details

    I applied through an employee at the office I was interested in. I was contacted by the recruiter about a week later. Had a brief talk with her and received an email shortly after about setting up a phone interview with a manager. After that the recruiter called again and we were able to set up an office visit. At the visit I met with two managers and a partner. Received a call a week later with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions from recruiter and manager were focused on location and background of the past few years. Office visit questions were very focused on how I would fit in and a large percent of the time was me asking questions.   Answer Question
