Pros

Learned alot good start to get into public accounting. The firm as a whole doesn't quite have the resources that the BIG 4 have but it is a friendly and comfortable work environment with good experience on interesting clients.

Cons

Performance feed back tends to get back to you relatively late in the game hurting your ability to fix your mistakes and issues in the work place.

Advice to Management

Make your performance feedback especially in the internship program more timely and effective. So that interns may be able to actually address the issues they have in the work place.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The organization name on your resume

    Cons

    Management in the Houston office does not seem to care about their employees. Employees are not treated well. They had an overwhelming amount of employees move from the Houston office of Grant Thornton to the Houston office of Price Waterhouse Coopers in 2010 for this reason. Some even left from senior positions at Grant Thornton to an associate position at Price Waterhouse Coopers.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the lives of your employees and solve issues regarding the dysfunction in the Houston office. The levels within the organization keep key issues from getting solved. When you have so many employees leave in 2010 (and this was not due to ordinary turnover), there are certain fundamental issues with the organization.
