Average company to work for
Decline to specify (Former Employee), McLean, VAJuly 9, 2015
Pros: Good work experience
Cons: Work-life balance wasn't always good, quality of managers was inconsistent (more training for managers needed to ensure this is addressed)
Overall, GT was a good company to work for and is where I gained the most valuable experience in my field. Work life balance was sometimes not considered by managers and was often a challenge.

Solid company with good work-life balance
Associate, Global Public Sector (Current Employee), Arlington, VAJuly 2, 2015
Compensation is a bit lower than other mid to large consulting firms, but the work-life balance is likely a bit better. The public sector practice does not have its own proposal team, so the consultants must work on proposals in addition to billing regular client hours.

Great experience, very good place to work if you're in Columbia, SC
Senior Audit Associate (Former Employee), Columbia, SCJune 29, 2015
Pros: Big firm "perks"/ tools and opportunities in Columbia, SC, Reliable office leadership
Cons: Public accounting is tough, there's no way around it
Good, smart, hard-working co-workers that pull their weight. You NEVER hear "that's not my job." A mostly friendly environment but it's a serious grind. That's the nature of the business. There's are some very, very long days but you get great experience. Travel schedule can be extensive if you draw the wrong set of clients.

Excellent learning environment for college hires. Experience varies by department and the culture in one group could be very strong. In other departments, there could be a lack of cohesiveness.

Educational, Diverse, and Rewarding experience
Experienced Audit Manager (Former Employee), Seattle, WANovember 4, 2014
Pros: diverse client base and knowledgable co-workers
Cons: extreme long hours of 80 hours per week or more.
A typical day at work included prioritizing client needs both short and long term. These needs ranged from researching accounting topics, financial reporting, presenting results, and forging cooperative relationships. In order to meet the needs of our clients I had to manage several audit teams at once. Management of these teams consisted of making sure we were efficient and prepared for the unique accounting and auditing demands of each client. The most enjoyable part of my job included teaching our senior associate and associates. It was rewarding to see those individuals develop into strong professionals and continue advancement in their career. I worked with a talented team both above and below me that gave me confidence we could meet any goal in front of us.

Friendly people, great firm
Regional Marketing Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 6, 2014
GT is a great firm with friendly people, however there continues to be challenges in high turn-over which causes issues for work load.

The pros at GT are plentiful with opportunity to advance and think creatively but like everything, things take time and patience.
