    I worked at Grant Thornton (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There was very good atmosphere in the company. I liked my coworkers and management.

    Cons

    You do not have work and life balance. You need to do many overtimes during the whole year.

    I worked at Grant Thornton part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance is amazing
    By earning my keep I was able to work a flexible schedule remotely without issue
    Good work relationships and lots of lasting personal relationships with co-workers
    Feel like more of a person and less of a number than bigger firms

    Cons

    Long hours
    Sometimes frustrating having to manage people who don't have the same work ethic
    Lot of administrative duties (time entry, billing, scheduling, etc.) in addition to professional work
    At times not a lot of support from management

    Advice to Management

    Be present and willing to help employees rather than letting them figure it out for themselves especially when their plates are already overloaded; recognize those who go above and beyond to make your job easier and do whatever it takes to keep them

    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, have great work life balance, and work with an outstanding group of people that care about your career development and professional growth

    Cons

    Sometimes the work requires a lot of our people and can cause more brain damage than growth and development. This is generally due to poorly managed engagements and clients.

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult to do in service industry but try to back your employees and not just always defaulting to the client is always right.
