Top 20 Best Places to Work In Canada... With Some Issues

A workplace where you will do the same functions day-in and day-out and not learn anything new for months at a time if your manager doesn't see you as their favourite. There is a reason Grant Thornton is top 20 in Canada for culture(Best Places To Work), however, it's very cliquey. If you want to be paid nominally for your productivity, but live without a lot of pressure, take an admin job here. (unless you're actually an accountant - high pressure, low pay until you reach partner)The company doesn't really value fast learners with high productivity over supporters of the status quo, so make sure to show you aren't special except at the watercooler/lunchroom. This is the most important place in the office. A worker can be relatively incompetent and still have a wonderfully stable place to live their lives if they make the important popular group their friends. Individuals won't be enough.Never tell anyone you don't want to become an accountant or that you're not interested in accounting. Always say you're studying or somewhere in the process of learning.

Experienced Manager

Terrible place, bad 401k, and “unlimited vacation” means you get none. They are an audit shop not a true advisory shop, despite aspirations. You have a lot of underperforms that care more about a terrible woke culture than client delivery.

Great Intern Experience

I have a great internship experience here, thanks to my seniors.My seniors are friendly and willing to teach, given the opportunity to do some audit working papers. Good thing abt GT than other big 4: can audit diff industry and company.

Worst place I have ever worked at

Several mistakes on one work paper you prepared after manager’s review would make you get kicked out of the company. They won’t fire you because they have no reason to do that just based on the mistakes you made. Instead, they will force you out by not assigning you any cases for like two months. Furthermore, the people above you would give you like 90% negative feedback not even constructive feedback without discussing it with you ahead and without telling you the reason afterwards. I am super glad I resigned. The company may be good but OKC office is the worst place I have ever worked at.

Compensation and benefit is great

Some co-worker is not approachable in audit division but in other division they are approachable. The salary and benefits is great. the deployment is very smooth.

le meilleur moyen pour se rendre malade

management inhumain , pas un jour sans que quelqu'un ne parte en pleurant , l entreprise se veut être stylée start up américaine mais vous êtes fliquez à mort, on vous demande de vérifier vos mails le dimanche soir et la charge de travail est irréalisable ( à moins peut être pour un robot ) je n'ai jamais vécu une expérience aussi catastrophique

Pros

aucun et fuyez

Cons

pression psychologique charge de travail environnement inhumain et malsain

Società strutturata

La mia esperienza è legata alla revisione legale, si tratta comunque di una società con clienti importanti e la crescita è veloce, si lavora davvero molto ma ero uno scappato di casa e qui mi sono costruito una carriera.

Supportive managers and partners

People are supportive of each other and feedback is always provided. The Firm sees to it that its people are always apprised of the changes in tax and accounting rules.Handling diverse and multiple engagements is a good training ground.

Pros

Lots of Training, Promotion is based on skills, Competent Superiors

Bad and negative environment

Contractors treatment is poor and unfair with no regard for advancement and quality of life of worker. The lack of guidance, support, and leadership make this the worst company to work for.

Pros

Best part was leaving

Cons

Could not leave fast enough

Great culture, good leadership, pay and benefits lacking

I work in FDD and the work is stimulating and overall I very much enjoy it despite the long hours and unpredictable work schedule ( part of the game though). Leadership has a good vision for company growth and at least in the S&T practice, growth and margins are good. Pay isn’t as good as Big 4, which isn’t that unexpected, and the 401k match is pretty bad. Overall though I’ve enjoyed my time.

Job security

There's no job security in Grant Thornton. They ll hire you initially by saying that the contract ll be extended and it will be made permanent. But it doesn't happen.

Pros

Professional work environment

Cons

No stability and job security

Stress total

La Société Grant THORNTON est très accueillante au premier jour, pour se rendre compte au fil des jours que tous les collaborateurs veulent partir. On ne m'a pas formé comme il faut et encore moins laissé le temps de me former. Exercer de la paie n'est pas si simple d'autant que chaque structure possède ses propres procédures!

No work-life balance no rest at all

Compensation is decent but not worth the stress, anxiety and workload that comes with it. Management always ask for suggestions but never listens even if the suggestion were given by most of the staffs from different periods.
