    Avantages

    The firm is large enough to have great facilities (e.g. really nice, recently refurbished London offices) and resources (e.g. training centre at Bradenham) and attract really good people to it, but still maintains a friendly and informal feeling. Being a shared enterprise means that everyone in the firm has a part to play in making decisions, and gets to share in the rewards - which makes me more motivated to work hard. The current CEO, Sacha, is a really inspirational leader to work with. Working hours are flexible, and lots of people work from home or other sites.

    Inconvénients

    The whole performance management/appraisal/pay process is not as transparent as it should be, which can be frustrating at year end time. Some of the systems used at the firm are outdated, and not fit for purpose (e.g. timesheet/billing system) which takes time/energy away from the day job.

    Employees treated well and with respect. Open door policy with senior management. Excellent training facility. Early responsibility encouraged. Agile working and employee wellbeing well supported.

    Je travaille chez Grant Thornton UK LLP à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    The best thing about working at Grant Thornton is the people. The people have bought into the core values at GT and that makes the culture there quite strong. I think people for the most part are quite collaborative and its people are encouraged to share their view and work to make GT a better place to work.

    Inconvénients

    While there seems t be a collaborative environment, at times it feels like to the different offices are only looking out fr themselves. It can at times feel like 20+ different firms rather than one because of different geographies and leadership in other offices. I also feel some of the initiatives that are rolled out, while well intentioned and ultimately good for the firm, are not handled properly through communication and implementation (whether its new software, training or internal policies). It often leads to great frustration and resistance to adoptin of new ideas.

    Conseils à la direction

    I think management should continue to encourage participation throughout the firm and sharing ideas. I think that has been a major selling point to the younger team members joining the firm as they feel like they have a voice within quite a large organisation.
    I think management needs to better implement new processes and ensuring proper consideration is given to training individuals before new processes are implemented.
    I think management has to clarify their strategy for growing within the market place. I think the 'vibrant economy' tagline is nothing more than a marketing catchphrase that many in the market place don't understand. I would rather have goals put in place and a startegy about how we are going to attack the market.

    Avantages

    I can honestly say that Grant Thornton is the best company I have ever worked for, and is the reason I have been here for so long! My opinion is listened to, I get involved in exciting work and there are opportunities across the firm to take advantage of. Team this with agile working and it means that I can have a healthy work life balance, giving my best to the business but also to my family.

    Inconvénients

    Business is growing and therefore different parts of the business/service lines to understand and so clarity is key.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep communicating with the business and sharing those success stories.

    Avantages

    When you join Grant Thornton you instantly feel part of a family. I meet people regularly that have been with the firm for 5+ years and there's a reason for that.

    Grant Thornton has been my first job out of school and i have rapidly progressed over the past 6 years that i have been with the firm. I joined as a Team Assistant, and following promotion(s) i am now in a client-facing Executive role which has put me on the perfect path to set me up for my long term career. I have had 2 secondment opportunities which has allowed me to build connections with even more people in the firm, and learn how the wider firm operates.

    Throughout this, i have been coached and developed with the support of my people manager, and attending in-house workshops.

    I have now found myself in a role that i can shape myself and i am encouraged to share idea's and feel they are valued.

    Inconvénients

    Can sometimes feel very partner-led, however a lot of execution and client-facing roles are at Associate /Executive level

    More connectivity between service lines and departments to feel more joined up as a firm. What are people, clients, and teams doing around the firm that are working really well?

    Conseils à la direction

    More connection between senior management and people at Associate / Exec levels so we can feel empowered and supported to grow, and execute - specially as majority are client facing. Can we hear what other people in the firm are doing more?

    Avantages

    An inspiring purpose and down to earth culture. Sacha, the CEO, is a real role model and when you hear her talk about vibrant economy it's really inspiring.

    Inconvénients

    There are inconsistencies in our culture. Some people have an amazing experience and others really don't. Some partners seem to opt in (or more commonly out) of national strategies, programmes or roll-outs. Work is being done though i hear on creating more of a leader led culture. It's needed.

    Conseils à la direction

    Focus on rewarding high performance more - in high performing business units and for people (and Partners) who demonstrate the right behaviours.
