The people are super nice!

Busy season and long hours


Comments

If you are looking for a place to work where you can genuinely get along and make friends with your coworkers without being considered just another "number" in a huge firm, GT is the place for you. Everyone is very warm and welcoming, and I can tell GT has a bright future ahead. Not to mention, we are competitively compensated, too!

The work environment is great. Even at our most stressful times of the year, the staff tend to keep a positive attitude and are light-hearted.


Downers

The time demand can make it difficult for people who are thinking about starting a family. But that is true of any public accounting position.

Executive in Audit & Assurance
McLean, VA | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

I work for Grant Thornton both because of its culture but they quality focus. I'm encouraged to be the best I can be each day and not only as an auditor but a wife, mom, volunteer, neighbor, etc. I have grown and developed into a leader at work and in my community thanks to the firms support.


Downers

We have struggled to retain so top talent at the early levels do to a generation shift. We need to better align are programs, incentives and culture to meet the younger generations wants/needs. We are working on this and it will be a long change process but I think it took us too long to recognize the need for a change.


Comments

I was once told by a college professor if you want a career in public accounting and not just a job you should choose Grant Thornton. I completely agree with this statement. Given our size we are large enough to get exposure and opportunities but small enough to be recognized, respected and valued. We are a growing firm which creates opportunities for advancement.

Mid-level in Tax
Baltimore, MD | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE


Uppers

The firm culture and close-knit community of professionals in the Baltimore office. The advancement opportunities, depth and bredth of project opportunity.


Downers

Lack of transparency at times, compensation does not seem comprable to other firms, trying to become a Big 4 firm, agressive client targeting while feeling that quality of client service is being compromised.
