      Great office culture where everyone looks after each other and genuinely seems to care. Good opportunities for career advancement. Paid overtime.

      Pay not as good as big 4. Does get very demanding in busy season which can lead to bad work-life balance.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      GT had a structured system for providing feedback to employees and development opportunities.

      Cons

      There was very little opportunity for 360 degree feedback within the organization, and the group structure seemed to constantly evolve and change with partnership changes.

      Not perfect, but an awful lot better than most

      Jul 12, 2021 - Audit Associate in Cambridge, East of England, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Leadership team genuinely seems to care for its employees which is a huge plus in this industry, they communicate very well internally with staff at all levels - A good and improving client base across a wide range of industries - Some very talented and intelligent individuals at the firm

      Cons

      - Even if you are proactive and plan well, you still get punished by the last minute 'need this now' mentality of some partners, directors and managers - Good performance is only rewarded with more difficult jobs and more responsibility, not with remuneration which leads to some of the most talented people leaving the firm

    8. 5.0
      Current Employee, more than 10 years

      22 years at GT and never been prouder to work here than I am now

      Jun 21, 2021 - Associate Director in Liverpool, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The way the senior leadership team have looked after their people during the pandemic has been amazing, and the way they are seeking to preserve all the good aspects of lockdown (less time commuting, more time for yourself/families) is fantastic to see. They recognised the amount of work people have put in during lockdown and have rewarded everyone with two well-being days off (on top of our existing holidays) and bonuses. Like most organisations at the moment there is a huge focus on diversity and inclusion, but the work being done in these areas is genuine and focused about bringing about real change rather than just a box ticking exercise. The firm has a great culture where you are able to be yourself. Teamwork and looking after one another is in the firm's DNA.

      Cons

      Like in any professional service firm the job is tough and stressful at times when we have tight deadlines to meet, but the support of colleagues and a true tteamworking ethos makes this manageable.

      Great place to work

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great place to work. Everyone seems to believe in the firm and the values they talk about. It's clear when talking to people who have been here for years that it's a place you can build a strong career. You're valued for who you are outside of work as well, and given the freedom to manage your own day, working at hours that work around things like childcare for example.

      Cons

      So far, I've come across none.
