Overall good experience
Mergers and Acquisitions Tax Services (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 14, 2018
I worked in two different offices at GT - one in the Midwest and one in California. Culture was much different between the two but my experience is that GT is a fantastic place to have a career - a firm that's large enough to have the resources of a Big 4 but small enough that culture is sustainable.

Good Internship
Summer Assurance Intern (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIAugust 12, 2018
This was a great internship. The firm wide message is consistent about how much they value people. I was working in the Milwaukee office as an intern, and I think that this local office is more focused on average performers and are overlooking a big talent pool.

fun workplace with great people
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKAugust 10, 2018
Looking for something different than public accounting. I really enjoyed my time at GT, but would like to branch out into new areas of business. Good benefits and unlimited FTO.

There was a steep learning curve without real training.
Tax Associate (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJuly 27, 2018
Everyone was really busy all the time and asking questions seemed like a burden. If the company took more time with their new hires instead of having them try and learn everything by themselves i would have felt more welcome and less of a burden.

It's public accounting
Tax Associate (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 19, 2018
They do strive to make the experience good, but with public accounting it only gets so good...long hours during busy season and there's really no way around that.

Large company with small company feel
Experienced Manager, Consulting & Technology (Current Employee) –  Alexandria, VAJuly 5, 2018
Large company with small company feel. Pushes a very strong culture that collides with the business side of the company because it is difficult to balance work and life, especially manager and above.

meeting client deadline all the time
Articled Clerk (Current Employee) –  NormandieJune 29, 2018
A typical normal day starts at 7am and ends at 9pm. People at Grant Thornton are committed to serve and they have a client at heart. The hardest part is to manage two different clients with same deadline but the most enjoyable part is the feeling after achieving what seemed impossible.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
short leave

Okay place to work at
Associate (International Tax and Transfer Pricing) (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 28, 2018
Overall okay place to work.
Resources are available for learning. Structured management is lacking. People are okay to work with.
There is subtle politics which is common everywhere but if you can work keeping your head down, you can surely learn plenty of things.

Great culture but very demanding
Senior Associate (Former Employee) –  Iselin, NJJune 26, 2018
Great place to work with great people but very demanding and not a great work/life balance. They do care about their people but the work becomes overbearing and you may have to commute to places that are not ideal.

A very fair and amicable place to work
Senior Manager/Manager Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 25, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Grant Thornton LLP. Was shocked and disappointed when I had to leave.

When the partner I supported (50% or more of my time) was terminated, I knew it would only be a matter of time for me.
Pros
Pleasant and happy environment
Cons
cannot think of anything

Great pay
Senior Associate Consultant (Current Employee) –  Alexandria, VAJune 19, 2018
The pay is great here but their utilization metrics are way too heavy which makes their FTO plan a joke.
But seems like a great company to grow in...

Excellent Company
Senior Accountant, Auditor, and Business Advisor (Former Employee) –  Southfield, MIJune 13, 2018
Typical work day included client interaction, review of financial statements, business advisory services, etc. I learned how to work on business deals at a very high level (usually with business owners / CEOs). Hardest part was the busy season - Year End. The most enjoyable was the paid time off for all the hard work.
Pros
Client involvement, comp. time, flexible work schedule
Cons
Busy season hours worked
