Great Place to Boost Your Career
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Madison, WISeptember 21, 2017
GT is an excellent choice if you're looking at getting into public accounting. You will gain so many important skills in a short amount of time and you will meet a lot of really good people along the way. As an auditor, you will experience relaxing summers with lots of time off. The culture is great and the people are top notch.

Flexible, need for technology upgrade
Manager (Current Employee) –  USAugust 29, 2017
High level of flexibility from days off, working from home and flexible hours. Technology is far behind other firms and needs complete upgrading. Compensation is lower than Big 4 once you get above staff.

Decent starting job but lack of incentives to remain
Audit Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 24, 2017
A decent company to start a career out of college given variety of clients and amount of responsibilities given at an early stage. However, very wide range of people here ranging from great to really bad. Poor management at the top and lack of performance incentives and transparency.

Work/life balance
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 22, 2017
Grant Thornton is an easy place to work -- great work/life balance. You do "pay" for this balance, however. This is not a place for someone looking for competitive compensation.

Project Management is the bulk of the work
Manager, Strategy & Performance Improvement (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, WAAugust 21, 2017
If you like Project Management (PM) work, then go to GT, otherwise, the majority of the consulting assignments is PM and very less of anything else.

I had thought exposure to Russel 2000 companies would be plentiful but most of the work is at large companies and not very interesting.

Hard working, diligent team dedicated to working long hours
Senior Tax Associate | Financial Services (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAAugust 12, 2017
Grant Thornton's tax department supports an environment for learning and advancement. The work is demanding but matched with fair compensation and recognition at the individual level. The office is quiet yet welcoming. Office culture emphasizes open communication and activities outside of work to grow as a team. As long as you are wiling to put in the time to learn, communicate and deliver, it is a rewarding place to begin a career in accounting.
Pros
Small teams conducive to learning
Cons
Time commitment

Chaotic Environment
Unknown (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 11, 2017
I advise to keep looking. The benefits are nice except for the pay. They overwork you and do not compensate well. They pay below market value for their employees and treat them poorly in the process.
