    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Appear very friendly at first , this is an illusion be warned !! Apologies for this statement , however I speak from experience from GT processes and from the truth.

    Cons

    Appear very eager from job offer, then offer contracts then ( don’t tell you) that your job offer is not valid until you do another interview after you have already completed and accepted contract, completed security on boarding! On interview with client They did Not offer a representative from GT related Function to be invited on the interview,! When complained about the un fair treatment their response was : we don’t offer chaperone service !

    Advice to Management

    Replace your Risk& Assurance managers, and do a TOM around your management team , follow the correct Employment law and rights and avoid discrimination at all costs. Your current recruitment and on boarding process failed!!! CSI ITIL and Lean - CoBIT Management is needed urgently!!!!

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

    Pros

    People are genuine and enjoyable to work with.
    Almost all offices are really modern with lots of collaborative workspace and hot desking.
    Truly agile work environment; I work what hours I want to, from where I choose and I don't have to ask permission; my work is measured on what I deliver.
    It's a genuinely purpose led organisation. Sacha Romanovitch is genuinely inspirational and supported by her leadership team. The firm's impact on a vibrant economy is important and high on the agenda.

    Cons

    People experience of working at GT are different depending on where you are in the firm and who you work for. Typical of a partnership but frustrating to hear.
    Pay is good, benefits allowance isn't as comparable to other firms but work life balance is much better at GT than those I know in the Big4.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent in how we operate and the experience for our people. Be more aggressive in the market place. We should be growing at a faster pace.

    Sense of purpose; opportunities to work in a wide range of areas; to grow and develop

    Cons

    Talent and hard work is rewarded. But you should expect to work hard, at all levels.

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

    Pros

    The people are really friendly. There is a strong focus on work-life balance and agile working across the different grades. It is a really entrepreneurial place to work, and will allow you to progress your career in a direction that suits you. A rewarding culture which genuinely recognises good work. International opportunities.

    Cons

    I've never felt like a bigger pedant. Attention to detail is lacking in many individuals and there can be a lack of a sense of urgency. The firm does not work as collaboratively as it should.

    Advice to Management

    Quality is one of the KPI that needs to be insisted on. Collaboration would be easier if each team did not have individual P&Ls.
