This position is hyped to sound like a great, fun-loving, culture forward place, but, in reality, the pay is basically minimum wage (when you break it down) and the expectations and volume of work are insane. Be prepared for managers to step on your career to advance their own.
Work load was constant and fast paced. Learned a lot about audit techniques. The company provided a great deal of training. The culture of the company is excellent as employees are encouraged to spend time with family and to do things to keep themselves healthy and engage with the community.
Variety of training opportunities
The company has over all electronic systems that guide and control the quality of the work at all branches.
It's a well established organization with international standards based on standard operating procedures. As the Audit Manager, I was charged with the responsibility of reviewing each and every Audit file to make sure that it complied with the following: 1) the international financial reporting standard
My job at Grant Thornton was a contract position and only lasted 11 weeks because of covid but while I didn’t get the full Grant Thornton experience I was comfortable, for the most part busy hours were perfect and I would definitely work there again.
Overall, the work experience in GT was fine. The salary was relatively low when compared to similar firms. GT hired so many CPA students and we (the students) needed the work experience to obtain our CPA, so we were willing to accept very low wages in order to get the experience. It happened to all the public accounting firms so there's not much to blame. GT had many offices and each office had its own office politics. The office politics were extreme in our local office, and there was limited transparency. If you choose GT, make sure to choose a larger office that can give you good exposure to the work.
The company has fully evolved since I started. We started out feeling like a family - management were apprachable and valued our comments, we had social gatherings, we felt appreciated and that we were making a difference. That is no longer the case. The majority of staff make less than the people filing for bankruptcy. We are expected to maintain unrealistic workloads for low wages. the environment has become increasingly negative and toxic. i would not recommend a job with Grsnt Thornton's Bankruptcy unit to anyone
they dont micromanage
very positive days - mgt assisted when negative built confidence, promoted growth management very supportive pushed me to be my best culture positive 24/7 was enjoyable Every day I felt I learned something. Management very supportive of any family illness so you never felt pressured.
working from home when you needed to help family during illness
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
This company has its seasons where it is all hands on deck non stop work. However, they know how to keep the environment lose and comical at times to bring down the stress levels. If you enjoy high intense number crunching with room to move up ranks gain higher pay and have good benefits then this is for you. Lots of work to be done at all times and lots of room to prove yourself to corporate.
Too many games played with performance reviews, salary, promotion and bonuses. The internal performance review systems are ever-changing and confusing. People and Culture talk a big game but this rarely makes it into reality or practice. Salaries are not competitive and stagnant. The firm is stuck not knowing what it wants to be somewhere between a Big 4 and a unstructured string of local firms.
The people and the culture make GT a great place to work. The firm emphasizes personal growth and gives everyone at every level opportunity. Unfortunately, like all professional services firms, the work eventually can become your life.
Networking, social events, learning
Workplace culture and management at Grant Thornton is extremely poor. Most of the managers in the firm only have their positions because they had been with the company the longest. This company is not interested in fresh ideas nor do they support the talented staff that is constantly passing through their doors. If you are the type of person that enjoys a grey work environment and wants to just keep there heads down till payday without, then this is hte company for you.
The people at Grant Thornton are very easy to get along with and the company has a great culture. However, you are expected to work hard and unfortunately, the pay does not reflect the effort, especially at the beginning. The company does provide a lot of training and coaching for workers and there is a lot of support.
