    I have been working at Grant Thornton UK LLP part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The firm is large enough to have great facilities (e.g. really nice, recently refurbished London offices) and resources (e.g. training centre at Bradenham) and attract really good people to it, but still maintains a friendly and informal feeling. Being a shared enterprise means that everyone in the firm has a part to play in making decisions, and gets to share in the rewards - which makes me more motivated to work hard. The current CEO, Sacha, is a really inspirational leader to work with. Working hours are flexible, and lots of people work from home or other sites.

    Cons

    The whole performance management/appraisal/pay process is not as transparent as it should be, which can be frustrating at year end time. Some of the systems used at the firm are outdated, and not fit for purpose (e.g. timesheet/billing system) which takes time/energy away from the day job.

    Graduate Trainee Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton UK LLP (Leeds, England (UK)) in January-2018.

    Interview

    Application form - strengths assessment - video interview(10 questions) + report - assessment centre.
    I didn't get through to the assessment centre but I got very useful feedback after the video interview, and the recruiter was very friendly. Video interview needs requires prep for answers as you only get 30 seconds to prepare each answer - research CLEARR values and have examples.
