Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

I worked at BDO for less than a year

Pros

A very helpful insight into financial reporting.

Cons

None which come to mind.

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Grant Thornton UK LLP full-time for more than a year

Pros

I feel very privileged to work at GT. The staff are genuinely some of the nicest people out there. The business prioritise staff well being, mental health and diversity very highly. It without a... doubt the most flexible place I have worked - the agile working policy is taken seriously. Even before Covid I was working from home at least twice a week, those with families even more so.

Cons

Some of the benefits e.g. paternity/maternity could be better and more in line with big 4. All of the other benefits are good, except there is no car allowance until Director level.

Advice to Management

Review our benefits policies and train the HR team better
