    Planning for growth

    In 2018, UK businesses could leave up to £72.5 billion of untapped growth on the table. Companies need to become purpose-driven, invest in top-line growth, tech confident and networked to unlock their growth potential.

  • Success, profit and purpose aren’t mutually exclusive. Read the write-up of our recent event, which saw our CEO, Sacha Romanovitch, debating purpose with David Grayson CBE, Emeritus Professor of Corporate Responsibility at Cranfield University http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQzkb

    Organisations need a purpose - and here's why

    I have been working at Grant Thornton UK LLP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been promoted within the year and so the restructure has worked well for me and I am happy that the changes have been made, the team leaders are supportive as are most of the dept.
    I enjoy the work I do and feel I make a contribution to the audit process, ideas are shared on a board which I like, my manager listens to my feedback. I think as a department it's growing and personally speaking I think it's got A LOT better. There's also a good reward package eg pension etc and the people from all levels are great to work with.

    Cons

    I suppose you can't keep everyone happy, and because the work is quite complex it's not for everyone, you will get lots of support from your team however if you refuse to take advice or make the same mistakes over and over again you will be put on an action plan, not really a con but it's all I could think of.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoy working here and pleased that my hard work has been recognised with a promotion (but would like to be paid more)
