    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great co-workers - Great work life balance - Great exposure to various industries and given the opportunity to see the full audit (top to bottom) at a much earlier stage than with Big 4

    Cons

    - With a predominantly middle-market clientele, you can occasionally run into the engagement where the client doesn't have it all together. Take these as learning opportunities though!

    Pros

    There are a lot of young, smart, diverse people working at this company, but more so at the lower levels than the higher.

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Audit Associate in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Grant Thornton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn a lot, lots of trainings and they have good expectations for the abilities and productivity of their new hires.

    Cons

    If you don’t fit the mold of a young professional who is unmarried and has no kids and has nothing but time to give, then it starts to get hard. The hours are very long and the expectations are to work as long as they need you to on any given night. That’s ok for some, but hard for anyone who has other commitments in life.
