    Pros

    Recognized in the society as working in the audit profession. Nothing else to quote.

    Cons

    GRO is very worst in Chennai GT. Most of the article trainees and good employees left the firm from GRO team especially. There are a few employees who do not know to communicate in English, not able to understand the financial control and work accordingly. Rather troubles other employees including article trainees to defend and hide their poor knowledge. Some are not qualified CA. Now they work as manager and projects are being handled with poor deadlines, low quality of work papers etc. Situation of qualified CA employees are not secured when working with them and often being problematic, then think of CA article trainees. Many CA aspired candidates left the firm because of them, where manager and assistant managers are not deserved to work with firm. Manager do not even know the modules in SAP, then how can they work with the clients where SAP is the application for its business? I am not sure either the GT requires efficient employees to work for its clients or retaining irresponsible persons who do not gain knowledge in communicating basic English with good grammar. GRO team is getting worse as days pass by because of their presence. Good luck for GT in future endeavors for retaining best ever employees who are not qualified professionals while the deserved staffs are ignored to represent its clients. That is why GT is not recognized much with other leading firms in the world.

    Decent pay for freshers and learning experience.

    Cons

    Long working hours, no activities for employees such as offsites, parties, annual functions etc., The managers here feel they are boss of everything and everyone and can do whatever they like which is a kind of attitude that doesn't allows the quality staff to say.

    Pros

    The team i work with is amazing and friendly.

    Cons

    I work in Grant Thornton Delhi, India. I wasn't paid for 6 months because of an approval process pending at HR level. The HR department here works at a pace slower than government department. I went through financial crisis situation during those 6 months since i had to borrow money from friends without knowing when ill be paid next. And even after 6 months i was paid but not the amount i should have. I called Hr to know the reason behind the shortfall ( these people are hard to catch..they hardly pick up calls and even if they do, they dont really resolve your issues). HR told me about a policy which is surely made to torture the people on loan staff. In nutshell, GT doesnt give the same pay to loan staff people who become consultant after completing their articleship as they give to people who started on their roll. I would definitely like to switch the moment i get a good opportunity. No peace of mind working in this kind of environment.
