I worked at Grant Thornton International

Pros

Learned alot good start to get into public accounting. The firm as a whole doesn't quite have the resources that the BIG 4 have but it is a friendly and comfortable work environment with good experience on interesting clients.

Cons

Performance feed back tends to get back to you relatively late in the game hurting your ability to fix your mistakes and issues in the work place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your performance feedback especially in the internship program more timely and effective. So that interns may be able to actually address the issues they have in the work place.

    Management in Houston does a terrible job

    Pros

    The organization name on your resume

    Cons

    Management in the Houston office does not seem to care about their employees. Employees are not treated well. They had an overwhelming amount of employees move from the Houston office of Grant Thornton to the Houston office of Price Waterhouse Coopers in 2010 for this reason. Some even left from senior positions at Grant Thornton to an associate position at Price Waterhouse Coopers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get into the lives of your employees and solve issues regarding the dysfunction in the Houston office. The levels within the organization keep key issues from getting solved. When you have so many employees leave in 2010 (and this was not due to ordinary turnover), there are certain fundamental issues with the organization.

    Pros

    -Great people
    -Great benefits
    -Flexibility, especially if you need to work from home or if need to take time off

    Cons

    -Pay---after doing some research you are vastly underpaid. You can easily make 15-20% more elsewhere. Even when doing your research and trying to approach a discussion on salary, you are dismissed.
    -Job can be repetitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should remember to value its employees by simply showing their gratitude (thank yous) and remember to compensate them accordingly, especially if you want them to stick around.
