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.

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

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.

Portland, OR | 2014 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The best aspects are the people you work with. It is a firm that has the resources of a large firm but the office size of a small firm. Co-workers get along very well in the tight knit group environment. The opportunites to develop are also top notch.

Downers

The worst aspect is only that GT doesn't have a lot of Fortune 500 companies to audit.
