137 employees reported this benefit
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.
Unlimited FTO once you meet ur
Great unlimited PTO program available
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.
Unlimited time off but not too many people use this perk.
No balance, and can't lose days. Have to work around an approval system, but still great to have.
The PTO/FTO is an unlimited program
Grant Thornton has transitioned to FTO. There have been mixed reviews among the employees. Most dislike it and miss their defined days. However, it is a big advantage if your contract permits you to burn at a higher rate and take time off during lulls.
