Accounts Production Technical Specialist (Former Employee) – Belfast, North Tower – 15 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.
Good working enviroment, colleagues very supportive and great team work. Very flexible and good work life balance.
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

The staff were friendly and helpful there wasnt always lots of work to be done. Hours were really suitable with week ends off. The workload was ok, and staff were always on hand to help with regular meetings.
Associate Director (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 26 February 2018
Very flexible place to work with great team spirit and culture. Leadership is main weakness, with limited focus on team development and cross-business alignment. Great CEO who is very focused on making GT a great place to work, so hopefully more leadership improvements to come.
A well established accountancy and Insolvency firm

Decent pay for low level qualifications, good benefits structure
Business Consultant (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 16 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.
General Operative (Current Employee) – london – 31 August 2017
Great work life balance. Unlimited holiday allowance, though you will struggle to find a quiet period to take the time off. the work can become rather dull after a while but the company overall offer a great work life balance with little stress involved.
Amazing company to work for and extremely supportive regarding a work/life balance. Fast past but friendly - great salaries and benefits. Lots of chances for promotions and advancing into new departments
Accounts production associate (Current Employee) – Belfast – 10 May 2017
Love my job and the people I work alongside however the chance of progression is slim and the salary is poor to say we have no real benefits, I would be sad to leave the role and my colleagues and I have learnt a lot in my time here
Career progress is limited unless you are in the "click" of certain management of departments. Hours aren't great and temporary contracts are the norm but you don't get told they are renewing you until a week before by which time you have found another job
