    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Management is very open and helpful. - Roundtables are fair; not cutthroat like some other firms I have been in. - FTO is great and reasonable, so long as you plan. - Good mix of large and medium sized clients. - Good work/life balance with management support. - Good benefits overall.

    Cons

    - Culture is changing, for the worse. - Often very reactive, not proactive. - Can become siloed if there is no one else in the office or if you are at the client site by yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your success comes from your employees. Many people who have been with the firm for years are leaving because the culture has changed. Be transparent. If there are layoffs, then address them first with your employees instead of shoving the culture journey down our throats. No one will care about the culture if there are layoffs happening.
