Everything was average. Office atmosphere depends strongly on management team
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.

Insolvency Unit - toxic work environment
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
Pros
they dont micromanage
Cons
everything else

Competitive dedicated atmosphere
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.

Great company culture, Slave labour
Company Culture was very strong, but the workload is unsustainable and pay is absolutely terrible. If you're willing to suffer through YEARS of being underpaid, the upside is eventually there for you.

The firm has lost its identity and is losing its culture
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.

Work hard, play hard
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.
Pros
Networking, social events, learning
Cons
Work hours

This is not the place for someone looking to advance their careers
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.

Great culture and people
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.

Great place to work
Grant Thornton is a great place to work! Everyone is treated so fairly and they really put an importance on work life balance and ensuring your mental health is a priority. They also plan multiple social events a year and for two years in a row we have had December 24-January 1 off with pay.

Says they stand behind employees but they don't
Grant Thornton comes off as willing to help and advance your career. But when you ask to do so they don't listen. I worked in the administration and was let go with no warning at all.
