Administrative Assistant | Edmonton, AB | 28 août 2012
Busy accounting office with many perks.
A typical day at work: 1. Open and sort mail for senior partner. 2. Prepare and modify correspondence. 3. Answer telephone and assist with scheduling appointments. 4. Print and collate financial year-end reports, and tax returns for senior partner and four senior accountants. 5. Retrieve documents from filing room. 6. Prepare monthly expense report for senior partner. 7. Make lunch reservations for business meetings. What I learned at Grant Thornton LLP: 1. The operation of standard office equipment. 2. Knowledge of clerical and administrative procedures required for a busy accounting firm such as filing, preparing correspondence and record keeping. Management: Management was friendly, approachable and very professional. Co-workers: My co-workers were friendly, helpful and fun to work with. The hardest part of the job: On numerous occasions, I was given little time to proof, print and collate a number of urgent year-end reports for different accountants, who all needed them completed that same morning or afternoon. The most enjoyable part of the job: Working with the accounting interns and my fellow administrative assistants.
Points positifsfree lunches, supportive team environment and culture.

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.

Learning opportunities and culture
Very busy but has been a great environment for obtaining significant accounting knowledge allowing me to take on senior roles like in-charge role for several audits, prepare year-ends for compilations and review engagements. Life happens but if you're not at work putting in 8-10 hour days you are not popular. I do believe overall with offices across the Country that the majority of offices have great workplace culture.

Poor Vision for the Future and Weak Management
I do not recommend working for GT. To me they are only interested in chasing the big four hoping to be rebranded as one of the big five. No vision for the future on how to get there other than to buy smaller firms and absorb their client base - but then have no clue what to do with them. It’s an accounting firm - they are all exactly the same. Don’t buy into their “Purple” campaign, it is shallow and absolutely meaningless.

Toxic culture
This was by far the worst job experience I've ever had. The culture is toxic, you live and work in fear and dread going in everyday. The pay was also well below market and you would face retaliation if you dared ask for a raise or comp review. DO NOT GO HERE!

Cover Letter
Dear Recruiter, As my enclosed résumé explains most of my professional career I have worked in Grant Thornton (GT) in Poland. I specialized in due diligence projects for Polish and international clients. The purpose of those projects was to identify and provide independent and reliable information on the Entity covered by due diligence at the request of potential investor including: identification and assessment of risks and irregularities as well as indicating key information which allows the Investor(s) to make rational acquisition decision. I was responsible for: evaluation of market and competi-tive standing of the Entity, assessment of long-term financial plans of audited Entity, evaluation of correctness of val-uation of assets and liabilities, determination of financial result as well as identification and evaluation of essential economic events having impact on economic and financial standing of audited entity. Due diligence projects in which I participated as a team member or a leading person consist of two parts: business/finance portion and taxation part. Because of that it was necessary for me to gain broad knowledge concerning Polish, European, and International tax laws. Almost 7-year experience has given me advanced knowledge in terms of accounting, tax issues, financial analysis and accounting management. During my work I conducted due diligence of various entities, including: companies listed on the stock exchange and entities being part of international

Productive, fast phased and enjoyable
My last firm is a leading tax, audit and financial advisory firm in UK. My typical day as an office admin assistant start with System log in, checking of emails, responding to queries and work requests. I was responsible for Schedule meetings, arrange conferences for my team (Tax). Other duties include drafting of contracts, follow-up client take on, distributing office post, filing and scanning of documents, faxing, letter typing, running tax compliance progress reports, franking of outgoing posts, retrieving documents from external storage etc. In our office I was responsible for maintaining the office supplies inventory by checking stock and ordering new supplies as needed. I have also helped my clients to book their travel and Hotel booking. I was able to achieve all my goals set by my mangers and consistently received positive feedbacks. During my tenure in Grant Thornton there have been several changes to operational processes, software applications and equipment. But dealing with technical and application issues were the hardest part of my job especially when working under tight deadlines. But every changes and up-gradations lead to increased efficiency in the long term. I have gained considerable experience in written and oral communication. I have also become an expert in several office applications, database and research tools additional to MS office. On several occasions in recognition of my performance and extra effort to complete urgent tasks, I had received

Audit Supervisor | Mozambique | 19 avr. 2016
Grant Thornton is a horror show for expatriates, professionalism is lacking
Work begins at 8:00 am and ends at 17:00 pm. We would get into the workplace and everyone would look happy in the morning. Sudden rants from the managing partner would dampen the mood in the office. We would go for break at 10:30 am and lunch hour was at 1:00 pm. The premises were beautiful but the mood was never accomodating. I have learnt to keep my professional behaviour and to put my all against all adversity. I have learnt that you may find difficut people in the working environment and you need to manage them well to avoid clashes. Management appeared to hate exparts, using vulgar laguage when addressing them and always threatening to fire them. Contractual obligations were not met for example, paying salaries at agreed amount, rather, the firm would convert the salary at a way lower exchange rate than the prevailing market rate, effectively shortchanging expat employees. Work permit issues we promised contractually but in the end exparts would work like illegal immigrants, always dodging the police and traveling to the border to get their passports stamped every month. It was one unprofessional environment I would not like to ever be in. Co-workers were not well trained, there were no training programs so it was not their fault. They seemed uninterested in their work as they became disgruntled by treatement from management. The hardest part was working with colleagues who were untrained and uninterested which would put more workload on the expart's shoul

Passion for consulting, making a difference by adding value to clients and managing teams as well as clients
At Grant Thornton, my primary responsibility currently is to conceptualize and spearhead project delivery in the areas of strategy formulation, feasibility/ market assessments, fiduciary risk, business planning, commercial due diligence and project management. I have had a steep learning curve having worked across divisions and teams in strategy and transaction advisory in the last 5 years. I have also had the opportunity to work on GT's internal operations development and implementation programmes. A typical day includes ensuring client deliverables are being executed smoothly, managing the project teams across projects and guiding as well as writing the key analysis aspects of the reports, reviewing the overall project reports, undertaking practice management aspects for the team such as invoicing, collections, chasing targets and managing clients to ensure customer delight for the services being provided. I am also actively involved in business development in converting leads into new clients as well as getting recurring work from existing clients. The hardest part of the job is to ensure time management to cover all the above varied aspects and still ensure top notch quality being delivered from the GT stable, managing team motivation against crunch timelines and creating a balance of ensuring development of the team and making work fun for them at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the day is to interact with the clients and their review for satisfie

Business Development Manager | Delhi, Delhi | 25 mai 2018
Experienced sales and business development professional
A typical day at work I have done different activities in different organizations on daily basis. In NIIT Technologies, I had a sales profile which required around 40% of the time in field which included giving presentations, submitting proposals, meeting and understanding the requirements of the clients and proposing new business ideas. In my office hours, I used to work with the delivery teams to create proposals, placemats for clients. We also used to plan and make strategy for creating a target list of clients which we used to call "must have accounts". We also used to target our existing customers for other services. In KPMG and Grant Thornton, my role has been majorly to support the partners in bid management process. On daily basis, I create placemats and proposals to support the partners. I have also created customized presentations as per the requirements of the partner. What I learned In different roles, I have learnt soft skills, brushed up my communication skills, financial analysis, business analysis, strategy and planning, proposal writing and gained significant experience in sales and marketing. I have thorough knowledge of the entire bid management process.

Administrative professionals proceed with caution
Please note that I write only from an administrative professional's standpoint. Started out as a great place to work, great supervisor and good people to work with. Challenging, but fair and flexible. A few years ago Grant Thornton started on a new "culture journey" and that sounded great--inclusion, positive thinking, and the like. Turns out it was all rhetoric, because since then the culture has gone downhill. HR is now called "People & Culture," a definite misnomer. National keeps making major changes with no regard to the effect they have on those who actually do the work at the ground level. I realize that this is a business, but I no longer feel like a valued member of a team, now I'm just a number on their books. Administrative professionals have been quitting left and right in the last few years; the company will not replace them, which leaves those of us still left scrambling to keep up. We've been told that partners are being pressured to get out and sell, while simultaneously being given more and more administrative work to track those sales, etc. Yet recently one of our administrative positions was actually eliminated. We're told this all comes from national and not this office directly, and that they don't anticipate any more "rightsizing" (which is what they're calling it instead of downsizing), but the administrative management here didn't even see this coming. I no longer feel appreciated, or any job security here.

A Professional and good place to work for
My daily life is the life of any auditor, you go to work, you question, you demand a 'sufficient appropriate evidence', and then finally you reach a conclusion! Of course there is more to that, but well, I don't think the audit life is something that interests most people! I can safely say that everything I know now career wise was gained in this firm .. except for... nothing, everything! I entered as a fresher with no experience at all and haven't even completed my degree yet. I am a chartered accountant now with five years of professional experience, I am also pursuing advanced education at the moment. The past 5 years were truly enriching, most of my education was done during my time in this firm and all my experience was gained here! The atmosphere is good, you work with professional and experienced people, but also very nice and helpful. I think the challenge I faced was delivering the level of professionalism and expertise that are expected of you as a professional accountant working in a reputable firm, and this represents a real challenge when you are just a fresher who is still studying and gaining the knowledge and expertise. The most thing I enjoyed, was overcoming the challenge I just described, passing my professional exams on first attempt while maintaining a strong performance at my job, both done simultaneously. It wasn't easy, but what a relieving and good feeling you get once you've done it!

Far from being "Big 4"
I would not recommend this place, especially the Rosslyn office. Management is too concerned with their own P/Ls to truly help anyone besides themselves or their immediate teams. Management is never around the office and rarely shows face. Trainings are joke, they never happen and when they do they are useless information. The partners charge time for time not worked then complain to you about overruns to the budget. Utilization is a useless metric that dictates your success and it is something you have absolutely control over. The partners on engagements want you eat hours to make the clients happy but then complain about you not charging enough hours. They are so far from the big 4 its comical in terms of learning and development, prestige, talent and resources. If you want a job were you are expected to teach yourself everything and not have a champion to help you develop, then by all means go here. Oh and the unlimited vacation policy is an absolute joke. You have to fill out this ridiculous form that completely discourages people from taking vacation. The vacation has been approved so far in advance and management pressures you not to take any time off because of the impact to your utilization.
Points positifsWork life is good, location is great, some smart people
Points négatifsunlimited vacation is a JOKE, 401k is meh, people are incompetent, no training
