Featured Review

Current Employee - Audit Assistant

I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Wellbeing investment Flexible work hours Work exposure Progression

Cons

Workload is high during busy season

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
