    Pros

    Grant Thornton LLP is a marketplace. Within that marketplace are many different groups and cultures that operate independent of each other, and independent of any higher leadership. If you can find (on your own) a group for which you are a good fit, you may have a very good work experience.

    Cons

    It is a marketplace. Once you are hired you are on your own. You are put in a little cubicle and that's it. You must then figure out how to (once again) market yourself to get a job on an existing engagement. You have to peddle yourself, the same as you did to get the position at GT to begin with. It is a cold and alien environment. Even as you are sending out tons of e-mails to various engagement managers to conduct meet and greet interviews, the firm is continuing to hire more people for whom there are no open jobs. The absence of company loyalty to their employees, despite lip service, is quite astonishing. It is better to look for a firm that is committed to you once you are hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exercise true leadership, commit to the staff you have hired. Include in your cost analysis the cost of turnover, loss of talented and proven consultants. As you churn your people, understand that they go to your competitors, and go to work at current and future client sites. Many former employees remember their experience, and will be in a position to select or deselect this firm.
