    I have been working at Grant Thornton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great place to start your career, a lot of opportunity for different projects - Great People - Fair pay - Good work/life balance (especially compared to a Big 4)

    Cons

    - Advancement within the company is highly correlated to business development - not to your actual client work. There is a very high stress on writing proposals if you want to move up. Actually doing well on your deliverables is hardly recognized. - You get placed in Service Lines and Business Units which theoretically dictate the type of work you do based on your skill set.
