Too much work for too little reward
Audit (Former Employee) – TX – April 17, 2018
It honestly isn't even the salary at this point, though make no mistake that is why a lot of people leave. (though to clarify, GT pays enough for cost of living; its the work:reward ratio that's way, way too low).
The firm has become probably the most inflexible its ever been. FTO is a joke. If you want any time off, I hope you have a crystal ball and can plan for everything a full year in advance. You won't get summers to take it easier like the recruiters will tell you. The firm has way too many off year-end engagements and not enough people to go around. Be prepared to work 60+ hours a week way too consistently during winter, spring, summer, and fall once you become a senior. May the gods have mercy on your soul if you get stuck on a big public job and an off-year end audit.
overload you with work; very manager heavy and short-staffed
