Grant Thornton Employee Benefit: Vacation & Paid Time Off | Glassdoor

Grant Thornton Vacation & Paid Time Off

Updated May 25, 2016

153 employees reported this benefit


Employer Summary

In November 2015, we became the first public accounting firm to offer a flexible time off policy, instead of a predetermined number of paid time off days. Employees no longer need to deplete their PTO bank to take a special trip or to take care of family obligations.

“Our goal is to further enhance our culture of trust, where employees are empowered to manage their own time, which allows them to return to work refreshed, with better ideas and solutions for clients,” says Pamela Harless, chief People & Culture officer.

    They offer great paid time off which I saw a lot of employees take advantage of during the summer months when things were slower.

    Unlimited FTO but you'll be lucky to take any days off because they don't hire enough people.

    They have flex time off, a policy where people can take off however much time they need. It is up to their manager and clients.

    There is an unlimited number of days off; however, it is difficult to utilize these days.

    It is nice to have as many days off as you need, however, not all vacation time gets approved and this system creates an awkward situation where you feel obligated not to take time off.

    "Unlimited" time off for every employee - the approval process is a logistical nightmare for everyone. Much longer process of getting your days requested approved.
