I worked at Grant Thornton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

good people, working hours are not bad. Partners are aggressive but treat their juniors better than other advisory firm partners.

Cons

GT gets less work compared to their peers or the Big 4

Advice to Management

Need to add a lot more marketing professionals. Have an arm just for research and putting out thought leadership articles

    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff is friendly, but poor morale has them turning on each other too.

    Cons

    Very poor morale
    Pay not in line with other similar firms (doesn’t even compare to big 4 even though they always compare themselves to them constantly)
    Many unqualified people leading while blaming staff for what goes wrong
    Unorganized and understaffed
    Not much team building

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming staff for mistakes you make. Also, start rewarding staff for working around the clock. A $10 gift card from Starbucks won’t cut it. Realize that you have good people working for you and threats and making big 4 sound like the devil are tactics that will not work. Also stop acting confused when people leave. You know why you leave and it doesn’t seem like you care.
