    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.

    Pros

    Surrounded by high quality, technical people The work can be very challenging and detailed

    Cons

    Under utilised for advisory work and lack of exposure directly to clients. This can be a strain considering productivity targets and a large part of the work being provided to do is not chargeable. Depending on work levels senior members give the impression of being unapproachable.
