    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great leaders, specifically at the local level . Partners show deep involvement in developing future leaders. Worked at 2 firms prior to GT and firm shows actual commitment in terms of $$ and time to driving an improving culture.

    Cons

    Growing firm experiencing bureaucracy challenges. Taking the step from a $500M firm in the early 2000s to a global $5B+ firm today. While the quality of the work output has seen huge growth, certain back office processes need streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone in management says they care about their People & Culture, but when there is an issues everything is push aside. Management is selfish and only cares about numbers rather than the good of the people that work for them.
