Mid-level in Audit & Assurance | Melville, NY | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The flexibility and reasonability of most people.

Downers

Sketchiness from upper management and not everyone being on board with the culture can make some things very miserable. All it takes is one bad seed.

Advice to Candidates

The company business model and plan is shifting and we aren't sure what it will hold - I would advise getting into the advisory section because all the money is being spent on growing that area.

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.

Advice to Candidates

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.

Advice to Candidates

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.
