    I worked at Grant Thornton

    Pros

    Great clients. Great co-workers. Decent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Age discrimination. I wasn't asked to leave, but I was told on three separate occasions that I didn't fit the image of a traditional new associate. Because of my age (38), I wasn't considered to be on a "partner track"...so, my future at Grant Thornton was in question. As a result, I wasn't given the traditional training all new associates receive until I was at the company for almost an entire year. So...for the first...

    Advice to Management

    Diversity has nothing to do with skin color or age...it has to do with thoughts and ideas. You only benefit from diversity, if you give it a chance. Your clients loved me. I wish you would have taken the time to get to know me, too. Maybe you would have liked me, too.

    I worked at Grant Thornton for more than a year

    Pros

    Fairly flexible schedule (at least for accounting), very good benefits, helpful support and administrative staff, extremely good State and Local Tax department, very knowledgeable leaders at the firm

    Cons

    Not much innovation in Federal Tax work, leaders of the company don't seem too concerned with fostering any sort of culture, experienced lots of recent employee turnover (even for an accounting firm), client turnover, at least when I was there, created instability in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create more employee specialization, incorporate more Federal Tax consulting or just become fully dedicated to State and Local Tax
