    Pros

    The culture at Grant Thornton is amazing! The people and work environment are top notch. Flexible schedule and perks are amazing at Grant Thornton.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not great. Expect to work 50-60 per week and always be on call even when on PTO. Compensation and benefits are sub-par.

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation and work-life balance. Provide employees with real PTO not PTO but you must take your laptop and answer emails.

    Pros

    Great compensation/benefits package, attentive partners and managers who truly care about their relationships with clients. Work ethic and dedication are highly rewarded/regarded. Lots of room to move up/ grow.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between offices/partners - they seem to be disconnected. Work/life balance varies depending on the time of the year (tax season). Frequent travel can get to be a little much, but I guess that comes with the territory/accounting in general

    Advice to Management

    Need easier to use systems. They are confusing and difficult to use. Otherwise, keep up the employee benefits and attention to clients. Keep remaining open and transparent with clients

    Pros

    Open ended platform, high degree of collaboration between advisory, tax and audit teams, lot's of potential for growth of the firm if the right leadership and approach is provided.

    Cons

    Lack of organization, rampant lack of polish and professionalism, No 360 degree feedback allowing some partners and directors to display poor behavior, lack of HR process and threatening behavior from partners

    Advice to Management

    Introduce 360 degree feedback at the earliest and develop a more professional environment.
