    I worked at Grant Thornton as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When working there, I experienced a broad range of industries, which enabled me to get a more diverse skillet. Grant Thornton is a well known company, and the experience earned there will help boost the rest of my career

    Cons

    It was very long hours(55+), which is expected in public accounting. Filing week was on average 80 to 90 hours.
    Some weekends were spent working as well during this time, although it was not every week.

    Advice to Management

    The organization of the internship was a little unorganized. Sometimes, it was difficult to find out where I was to be working for that week.

    I worked at Grant Thornton as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn a lot in a short span of time. All the seniors and manager are willing to work with you and answer any questions you have.

    Cons

    I interned during a slow season so they had to try to find me work. Other then that I had no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    If there is no work at the client site, ask the seniors or managers to tell the person assigning the interns to the various clients.
