    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Grant Thornton UK LLP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy, easy going culture, flexible working, fortnightly onsite doctor in London office. You get the feeling senior leaders do actually care about the wellbeing of people.

    Cons

    Support functions have been completely decimated meaning more work than ever with fewer people. The motivation and energy of staff has been sapped over the last nine months since. Partnership hierarchy is the biggest challenge to delivering on strategy - things take too long to get done. Individuals often derail firmwide initiatives Not diverse enough at senior/partner level. Need more women at the top to encourage diversity of thought.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out quality, bring in a more diverse leadership team and treat non-fee earners as experts, not skivvies.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, a good atmosphere to work in, also great opportunity to gain experience working for a big firm.

    Cons

    Basically doing an auditors job for a fraction of the money, no real prospects of progression in terms of job role or salary

    Advice to Management

    Provide a pathway for employees to progress on to training contracts were they have something to work towards, would reduce employee turnover greatly as there would be a higher job satisfaction knowing there is chance of progression
