    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Grant Thornton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are no pros from working here. You will only find confusion, sorrow, exhaustion, obnoxious behavior, arrogance by partners, hoarding of information by coworkers, fatigue, stress, and zero teamwork.

    Cons

    Everything about this place was a big negative experience. Partners snorting illicit powdered substances prior to meetings in order to function. Engagement managers doing shady things financially in order to make themselves look good, but to the detriment of their workers. The work is not rewarding and not complex but due to the stifling administrative bureaucracy, what should only take a day ends up taking a week. Constant scheduling conflicts, people schedule and cancel the same meeting multiple times (triple and quadruple bookings). Everything is Always last minute and rushed with very poor planning and forethought which causes unnecessary stress and conflict.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the substance abusers who are partners, You need to take a long hard look at how you treat your workers and start putting in reasonable limits on working hours instead of the singular obsession with billable hours which ruins work-life balance.
