Entry-level in Audit & Assurance
Dallas, TX | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

The people, The base salary is great coming right out of college, and the variety I get in my work from client to client.


Downers

Not geting paid overtime, some scheduling could be done better as far as logistics goes, and a fairly heavy workload.


Comments

I have really enjoyed my time at GT so far. The people that I'm working with make a huge difference. Any public accounting job, you're going to be doing pretty much the same work, and a lot of it, so being stuck in an audit room with people whose presence I actually enjoy makes it infinitely more rewarding. And everyone is really helpful, I learn so much every day, just from little tidbits that get passed down to me as excel tips or a better, more effecient way to do something.

Partner/Principal in Audit & Assurance
Kansas City, MO | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Opportunity to make a difference / not as bureaucratic as the Big 4. Better work life balance than Big 4 as well.


Comments

Quality of work really builds the resume whether a person stays in public accounting or exits to private. GT offers great experience in complex accounting matters, yet a balance with a wide range of clients / industries. Not getting stuck on one client in one industry like the BIG 4. Work life balance is probably 5 to 10% better which is meaningful and the compensation and benefits are competitive with all the firms.

Entry-level in Audit & Assurance
Portland, OR | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

Having an office that is a size where I can get to know everyone, management and colleagues who care about your personal/professional growth and development, management who wants you to stay in at the firm over the long term and actively seeks to improve your quality of life as much as they can, not an atmosphere where people feel like they've got to play games (eg: one-up one another), on the job training is extensive and colleagues are extremely patient and understanding when helping first year auditors

For a public accounting firm, the workload is reasonable and diverse to allow for a candidate to obtain experience and pursue the career focus they choose.

Entry-level in Advisory Services
Baltimore, MD | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

I love the people I work with in my office. If it wasn't for them, I don't think I would like the actual work I am doing as much.


Downers

I do not like how my office is on the smaller side. Sometimes when I come to the office, I am the only person from advisory there, which can be lonely.
