Productive and Fast-paced working environment, Management is quite helpful.It's best if you are at start of your career, and you need excellent learning,

Pros

Productive and Fast-paced working

Cons

No other proper benefits
Was this review helpful?

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.

Excellent opportunities

Worked in their Dublin office for 4 years and found it a very good place to work. Great atmosphere amongst co-workers and a good mix of experience and enthusiasm amongst the team. Great long term opportunities.

Large public accounting firm

Grant Thornton offers a growth environment in which you will continually be learning, however there is constant change and you never quite feel like you fully get your feet on the ground before it is on to something new. The 'work/life balance' is not as great as they try to sell it as. Busy season, as at most public accounting firms, is brutal, and off-peak season is normal 40+ hour weeks. Flexibility comes in the time off - as long as you book it far enough in advance (i.e. there is no limit to time off but only if you hit utilization goals and are unassigned for the period you are requesting off). The managers and partners are very supportive and the culture is one of diversity and inclusion.

Pros

Good benefits/pay/stability. Supportive management. Growth opportunities.

Cons

Poor work/life balance. Constant change. Draining mentally and physically.

A typical day at work is busy with deadlines running on multiple clients. I learnt how to multi-task from the pressure. Management is very helpful and will to provide a helping hand when things were challenging.

Productive, fast paced and interactive working environment.

SNG Grant Thornton is a fast growing company with many long standing clients and even more new clients. The diverse client base provides excellent opportunities for growth and development for companies in various industries in both the public and private sector. The growing client base demands long working hours and you may expect to work a lot of overtime. The working hours are manageable for persons pursuing ITC or APC, however it has proved to be challenging for persons pursuing CTA. This place is recommended for people who are willing to work and with an appetite to learn. Trainee salaries are very competitive in relation to the market. The company's commitment to client retention at times seems to supersede its work life balance, thus resulting in trainees going through spells of burn out and feeling demotivated. Following the merger with Grant Thornton, the SNG Grant Thornton seems to be well positioned for larger clients both domestic and international. This shows strong promise to growth and learning opportunity.

Pros

The organisation hosts very enjoyable corporate functions

Cons

Extremely long working hours (I accumulated 40 overtime days in one year)

Decent company to work for

Nothing particularly stands out, very much in line with other auditing and consulting firms. Provides solid, regular training and ensures that newer staff have the training and mentoring they need.
