Supportive employer
Accounts Assistant (Former Employee) –  Liverpool29 October 2018
I found Grant Thornton to be a supportive employer who took a punt on me at a time when I had no experience.

There is an expectation to work long hard hours, which goes with the job, but the rewards are good if you put the effort in.

Study support was provided, as was time off to study.

Overall I would recommend working there.

Accounts Production Technical Specialist
Accounts Production Technical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Belfast, North Tower15 September 2018
Grant Thornton UK LLP generally has a good working enviroment, built on team working. Very flexible and good work life balance. The Belfast structure is a bit unlilke in most practices as it does not promote development for qualified accountants.
Pros
Good working enviroment, colleagues very supportive and great team work. Very flexible and good work life balance.
Cons
A qualified accountant indirectly reports to mere team leaders, who have no technical expertise on the role requirements, this is frustrating to qualified accountants, and is trigerring a lot of recent resignations, pay is below market rates, there is zero prospects for accountants career progression within the Belfast department

Business Consultant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London16 October 2017
The workplace culture is different from the big 4, it is more engaging, relaxed and less hierarchical. Smaller teams allow better experience and more involvement with clients, if that what you are aiming to acquire.
Pros
fun, professional, balanced
Cons
less diverse

Mainly an enjoyable place to work
Secretary/PA (Former Employee) –  Leicester, Leicestershire2 October 2017
There was rarely a typical day at work. Various types of clients, both internal and external, to deal with both face to face and over the telephone with all sorts of queries.

Over the years the IT packages changed dramatically and so various skills had to be adapted accordingly to produce different types of documents.

Members of support staff were able to cover various roles including reception cover when necessary.

Many of the staff made the office an enjoyable place to be.
