Business people in a people business.
We never forget that our colleagues are not just brilliant at what they do in business; they're brilliant people, full-stop.

So stop by our booth and say hi to the team.

We live (and work) by our values.
At Grant Thornton, we are bound together by a set of global values and supporting behaviors that shape the way we work with our clients, with each other and within our communities. These values are:
Our values are the foundation of each step we take toward as a leading firm serving dynamic organizations. They are the bedrock of our culture as a modern organization that is inclusive, respectful, flexible and where employees can truly and fully be themselves.
Build a strong foundation for growth.
Starting your career on the right foot is important. You want to grow with a firm that’s interested in your long-term professional development. That's us. We'll help you learn the technical skills that will grow your career, and provide guidance, mentorship and inspiration along the way. You will gain valuable experience by working alongside our approachable, available leaders, and through formal leadership and technical training courses.
Flexible time off. Really.
In November 2015, we introduced a new flexible time off policy, instead of a predetermined set of paid time off days. Our employees don't need to deplete their PTO banks to take a special trip or take care of family obligations. We are the first public accounting and consulting firm to move away from the traditional paid time off model in an industry focused on utilization.
We do this because we trust our employees to manage their own time, which in turn allows them to return to work refreshed, with better ideas and solutions for clients. It's one more way we encourage you to bring your whole self to work. You decide when and how much time you need to pursue your passions. Go ahead, climb Kilimanjaro. Go to the beach. Reconnect with your kids.
See how employees reacted to the new policy when we shared the news! (Spoiler alert: They were delighted.)
I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (Less than a year)
This firm has exceed all my expectations. I came from a Banking background to the Consulting world and am amazed at the cultural differences. This is a lean, entrepreneurial firm where they value their staff as the true engines of growth that we are. Actions speak louder than words and GT gets it.
It is a fast-paced culture that rewards entrepreneurial drive. This is not a place for followers.
Advice to Management
Continue your focus on the quality of life initiatives that you have in place and the staff will continue to support you
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Grant Thornton.
Met with a greeter while waiting for the interviewer and discussed any questions I had about the program. When we finished, she brought me back to the interviewer. The interviewer was very nice and made the interview conversational.
