Recommends

I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The culture is pretty good but it is changing. There is easy access to leadership. There are lots of training and certification opportunities.

Cons

There is a core group of people who do all the work. The pay could be better. For the last 3 years, they pushed back our bonuses. You really don't have any say on what client you would like to serve. Just work on the client you've been assigned. You'll get annoying emails that will ask you to email someone because he or she couldn't do it.

Advice to Management

There are many young managers and bad, experienced managers. There needs to be more managerial training.

    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good client base. Happy medium between large and small firms. Great place to work in the short term.

    Cons

    Does not present the strongest career building foundation. Hired a bunch of rejects when the market was tanking because no one wanted to work at the low ball salaries. The fruits of their labor are truly starting to show when incompetent people move up the ranks and keep brushing off what they cannot do to others just to get by.

    Advice to Management

    Don't present flawed pictures of where the company is at or where it will be. Work on employee contentment before and retaining good workers. LISTEN to what employees give you as feedback instead of just asking for it as a formality and not actually doing anything about it.
