Outstanding! Long hours (to be expected in public accounting), but the firm was top-notch!

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

Pros

The people. They were some of the brightest, kindest and most talented people I could have ever hoped to worked with. They taught me so much, and really made the long hours bearable. I consider many my friends (not just networking contacts) even after leaving.

Cons

When I was there, they may have been a bit understaffed at the Associate/Senior Associate level, but this was also not long after the 2008-2009 general economic implosion. I think most firms were cautious about they're hiring during the subsequent couple years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing -- a part of me wishes I was still there!

    Pros

    Experience and the people. There is always work to do. The CPE is very easy to get.

    Cons

    Each office operates as if it is a different firm. The tools are the same from office to office but office structure, scheduling, and annual reviews are done differently.

    Extreme hours and travel time. If you break it down to an hourly rate, its probably less than $15.
