Lifestyle/work-life balance


Comments

Lifestyle/work-life balance and Firm culture/colleagues are important factors that keep me happy at GT. Other factors that matter to me like compensation and prestige are mediocre and nothing special.

the variability of my work, and sometimes being not chargable


Comments

I like the firm a lot. I wanted to switch practices because i enjoyed the work more, and they made that happen. The company and the people i work with are very flexible, and trust me, which is appreciated.

Executive in Audit & Assurance

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.
