Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at PwC full-time

Clear career path and great learning opportunities, recommend as your job out of campus

Cons

Working hours can be unpredictable

"Love this firm"Apr 14, 2020

Current Employee - Audit Senior Associate

I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Great co-workers - Great work life balance - Great exposure to various industries and given the opportunity to see the full audit (top to bottom) at a much earlier stage than with Big 4

Cons

- With a predominantly middle-market clientele, you can occasionally run into the engagement where the client doesn't have it all together. Take these as learning opportunities though!
