Great corporate culture, good people. A lot of flexibility with remote work. Non-client facing employees don't have a lot of growth opportunities. A variety of work.

Supportive Manager but toxic work life balance

I worked with GT for 2.5 years and for most of the time it was good but the work culture is very stressful and almost everyone had to sit late hours during busy season inlcuding weekends. I was give almost negligible raise in my 2nd year inspite of working overtime during busy season and I was laid off immediately after I cam back from my maternity leave.

Average public accounting experience

Pretty on par with other large public accounting firms. Expect long hours during busy season, high expectations, and to learn on the job. Benefits would include lots of resources. Make sure to use your unlimited time off.

Top tier employer

Great place to work, especially if you're a new grad. Very good salaries and benefits, and fast track promotions for high performers. They really care about the employees and invest in individual career development.

Growth mindset but can be busy

Growth mindset but can be busy. Not a lot of trainees stay after their contract leaving gaps and requirement to hire international people. Compensation is good compared to big 4.

Amazing managers

Working at GT was like any other large organization. However, the benefits are one of the best in the industry with upto 3 months paid maternity leave and the work life balance was good. Not so much focus on utilization as other companies do. There was plenty of flexibility.

Good management and reasonable pay. The work environment was good and before we went remote the office was really quality. Would recommend.

Culture is fine and the compensation is alright. Work is like any other Public Accounting firm. Everyone is friendly, but there is a lot of work to do.

Good culture and benefits

Good benefits, unlimited time off, flexible work schedules, all around good people to work with. Sometimes communication from the leadership is not the best.

poor management

Workplace does not invest in employees. Needs management improvement. Benefits are okay. Limited learning opportunities. Wished I had leaned in a different direction instead of staying loyal to the company for so many years.

Good culture but a lot of work above and beyond….

Everyone is asked to do much more than billable hourly work and target utilization rates are higher than local competitors — leaves everyone slightly overwhelmed all the time.

Productive place

It is a productive place but there is so so much turnover, therefore, workload is increasing gradually. Other benefits are at the average level. Nice place to work

Experienced Manager

Terrible place, bad 401k, and “unlimited vacation” means you get none. They are an audit shop not a true advisory shop, despite aspirations. You have a lot of underperforms that care more about a terrible woke culture than client delivery.

Great culture, good leadership, pay and benefits lacking

I work in FDD and the work is stimulating and overall I very much enjoy it despite the long hours and unpredictable work schedule ( part of the game though). Leadership has a good vision for company growth and at least in the S&T practice, growth and margins are good. Pay isn’t as good as Big 4, which isn’t that unexpected, and the 401k match is pretty bad. Overall though I’ve enjoyed my time.

Long hours are expected from employees. Strong culture on paper, not so much in the day to day messaging.

Nice benefits.


Unlimited PTO did not really work based on expected work hours.

Good Team with Some Rotten Eggs Mixed In

GT's not a bad place to start out of school, and if you're someone who naturally fits in with different groups of people, you likely will be successful here. I thought my team mostly consisted of good people, but the Project Manager kept the work environment tense during busy seasons, and there were colleagues who resorted to petty office politics (e.g. slandering others behind their backs) to get ahead of the pack. Losing several popular partners at the same time didn't help with team morale and probably was the spark leading to dramatic employee turnover, but I imagine everyone's experiences at GT will vary depending on their project.


PTO and benefits, nice office space, reasonable people


Low salary raises/bonuses, leadership turnover, office cliques

It's okay... definitely needs improvement among upper management

Pros: nice office facilities, fun workplace activities, lots of DE&I initiatives, decent benefits, most managers very encouraging and want to invest in your growth, generally a friendly work environmentCons: High turnover, with fewer professionals hired to replace those who left. Constantly short-staffed. Upper management does not understand the severity of the burnout among those on the team even when it is consistently communicated to them - causing plenty of good talent to leave for other firms.

Normal Accounting Firm

Grant Thornton is just like any other accounting firm and most reviews from those would match it. One thing that stands out is there is a bit too much Q&A for good and bad. They are a bit too picky with items that are really de minimis.
