    Pros

    Recognized in the society as working in the audit profession. Nothing else to quote.

    Cons

    GRO is very worst in Chennai GT. Most of the article trainees and good employees left the firm from GRO team especially. There are a few employees who do not know to communicate in English, not able to understand the financial control and work accordingly. Rather troubles other employees including article trainees to defend and hide their poor knowledge. Some are not qualified CA. Now they work as manager and projects are being handled with poor deadlines, low quality of work papers etc. Situation of qualified CA employees are not secured when working with them and often being problematic, then think of CA article trainees. Many CA aspired candidates left the firm because of them, where manager and assistant managers are not deserved to work with firm. Manager do not even know the modules in SAP, then how can they work with the clients where SAP is the application for its business? I am not sure either the GT requires efficient employees to work for its clients or retaining irresponsible persons who do not gain knowledge in communicating basic English with good grammar. GRO team is getting worse as days pass by because of their presence. Good luck for GT in future endeavors for retaining best ever employees who are not qualified professionals while the deserved staffs are ignored to represent its clients. That is why GT is not recognized much with other leading firms in the world.
