Passion for consulting, making a difference by adding value to clients and managing teams as well as clients
Associate Vice President (Current Employee), Gurgaon, HRJuly 1, 2014
Pros: flexibility, firm support for lunch/dinner/drinks to maintain team morale, team activities
Cons: long hours, lower salary than industry, low international exposure, no higher education programs
At Grant Thornton, my primary responsibility currently is to conceptualize and spearhead project delivery in the areas of strategy formulation, feasibility/ market assessments, fiduciary risk, business planning, commercial due diligence and project management.

I have had a steep learning curve having worked across divisions and teams in strategy and – more... transaction advisory in the last 5 years. I have also had the opportunity to work on GT's internal operations development and implementation programmes.

A typical day includes ensuring client deliverables are being executed smoothly, managing the project teams across projects and guiding as well as writing the key analysis aspects of the reports, reviewing the overall project reports, undertaking practice management aspects for the team such as invoicing, collections, chasing targets and managing clients to ensure customer delight for the services being provided. I am also actively involved in business development in converting leads into new clients as well as getting recurring work from existing clients.

The hardest part of the job is to ensure time management to cover all the above varied aspects and still ensure top notch quality being delivered from the GT stable, managing team motivation against crunch timelines and creating a balance of ensuring development of the team and making work fun for them at the same time.

The most enjoyable part of the day is to interact with the clients and their review for satisfied work delivered/implemented which has actually made a difference for them in real terms and to share the same with the team since its a team effort that delivers the true value to a client. – less

Trying too hard to be like Big 4
Assurance Associate (Current Employee), Houston, TXMarch 30, 2014
Pros: compensation similar to big 4
Cons: no recognition
The work-life balance is awful. You don't get world class clients like Big 4. The hiring quality is going south. I would either decide to go Big 4 or go to a large regional firm.
