3.0 of 5 stars

Entry-level in Audit & Assurance | Atlanta, GA | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

I enjoy the people I work with and I learn a lot at this job.

Downers

The FTO policy and the long hours.

Comments

If you want to spend some time in public accounting, you should choose Grant Thornton. The issues that I have with the company are across the board of public accounting companies. I believe that Grant Thornton, even with it's flaws, is a great place to spend time at if you are interested in public accounting.

Overall it has been a good experience. It has taught me a lot about what I want from my career and what I will do in the future to prepare for it

3.1 of 5 stars

Mid-level in Tax | Miami, FL | 2017 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The culture.

Downers

Management prefers to focus on budgets that would allow them to provide a potential client with a low fee quote to acquire work rather than on realistic expectations. This in turn causes the rest of the team to face backlash when the unrealistic budget isn't met.

Comments

The firm has a great culture, decent compensation, and will help you take control of your career early on. On the other hand this is still a CPA firm and the general common themes expected in a CPA firm still run rampant. Examples being long hours and a heavy focus on hitting charge goals and budgets.

Fullfilling

It is a good firm, I just wish I was more a part of it.

2.9 of 5 stars

Mid-level in Tax | Charlotte, NC | 2016 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Good working environment

Downers

Too many silos among business lines. If you aren't in the right one, you will not have opportunity depending on who you work for and the circumstances.

Comments

This is a great firm for entry level employees. They are nurtured and mentored. If one is hired with experience, I would not come in at less than the manager level. Senior associates are not welcomed or adequately trained. It is a sink or swim mentality, and I have seen many sink in the time I have been here.

I enjoy the independence and the people I work with, but the necessary hours to put in can be demanding.
