Tough atmosphere to work in

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A lot of competition between accountants, but I guess that is what gets you the partnership in the end.

Supportive managers and partners

People are supportive of each other and feedback is always provided. The Firm sees to it that its people are always apprised of the changes in tax and accounting rules.Handling diverse and multiple engagements is a good training ground.

Pros

Lots of Training, Promotion is based on skills, Competent Superiors

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.

Job security

There's no job security in Grant Thornton. They ll hire you initially by saying that the contract ll be extended and it will be made permanent. But it doesn't happen.

Pros

Professional work environment

Cons

No stability and job security

Stress total

La Société Grant THORNTON est très accueillante au premier jour, pour se rendre compte au fil des jours que tous les collaborateurs veulent partir. On ne m'a pas formé comme il faut et encore moins laissé le temps de me former. Exercer de la paie n'est pas si simple d'autant que chaque structure possède ses propres procédures!

No work-life balance no rest at all

Compensation is decent but not worth the stress, anxiety and workload that comes with it. Management always ask for suggestions but never listens even if the suggestion were given by most of the staffs from different periods.

Mauvaise expérience

L'ambiance est particulière, elle peut être bonne.Il y a énormément de pression, de nombreux départ. C'est un environnement de travail très stressant, c'est compliqué d'y être formé. Pas ou peu de communication, et aucune reconnaissance.Cependant, on est très vite au cœur du métier donc on devient vite indépendant. En soit, c'est enrichissant, malheureusement difficile de tenir sur du long terme.

Pros

Ticket restaurant, Chèque CESU, horaires

Cons

Salaire bas, aucune reconnaissance

Environnement de travail agréable

Très bon accueil au sein de la BU. Le management est sympa et décontracté. L'équilibre vie pro / vie perso est plus au moins respecté. Cependant au niveau de la formation il y a encore des progrès à faire.

Pros

Repas gratuits

Cons

Peu d’avantages financiers

Toxic culture

This was by far the worst job experience I've ever had. The culture is toxic, you live and work in fear and dread going in everyday. The pay was also well below market and you would face retaliation if you dared ask for a raise or comp review.DO NOT GO HERE!

Cliquish and unfriendly work environment

Highly pervasive attitude of disrespect towards administrative staff among the middle and lower levels of accounting staff: unreasonable demands, scapegoating and open hostility get more and more common the further down the ladder you go.

Low work life balance, but good career mobility

Like any position in public accounting, this comes with its work life challenges. Management is trying to keep up with inflation, but there is only so much they can do.

Ne pas y rester trop longtemps

Démissions à la chaîne, des managers les plus “humains” et bienveillant.Les pires restent.Tres bien pour monter en compétence mais il faut fuir rapidement après
