I worked at Grant Thornton Ireland full-time

Pros

Partner visibility is good. Open door policy.

Cons

Always felt smarter than everyone else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your brightest people are at the lower levels. If you want things done right, get the junior staff to do it. Most of your senior leadership has forgotten how to do work.

    Worked for the competitors, Grant Thornton has been the best place to really land

    I have been working at Grant Thornton Ireland full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People. Can't say enough about how nice people are in the Chicago office. I've worked at other big public accounting firms, and the people here are really what make this firm different. I can't speak for the other offices, but the Chicago office has been really great so far.

    Cons

    None of far that I would consider note-worthy compared to its competitors

    I worked at Grant Thornton Ireland full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    GT is looking to increase its market penetration and brand awareness on the consulting/advisory side. This provides opportunities to contribute toward business development initiatives and identify new opportunities for services. The firm’s culture is pleasant and collaborative, it has a high focus on organic growth. Colleagues for the most part are intelligent and driven.

    Cons

    Within HCAP (healthcare advisory), a team of about 40 consultants, leadership seems a bit lost. The group does not have a strategic plan or direction to compete against larger firms. Salary is market competitive but bonuses are on the low end due to the overall financial performance of the firm. Human resource support for consulting basics like travel booking, time logging, corporate cards, and cell phone is very poor. The structure for submitting career goals, fostering individual development ,and granting promotions is loose to non-existent. Turnover for the practice has been high which negates their aggressive hiring strategy. If you are looking at GT coming from the Big Four or a boutique consultancy, reevaluate your decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a business strategy
    Firm up your internal capabilities to support consultants
    Refine structure for setting goals and personnel development

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
