I have freedom and support
I chose Grant Thornton because I wanted more exposure to a larger variety of industries and clients. I knew there would be a lot to learn, but I didn’t know how much support I’d have to succeed and grow with these new experiences. Here, through development opportunities, continuous feedback and access to senior leadership, my leaders empower me equally with freedom to set ambitious goals and with help to meet them.
“It's a great feeling to know that I’m not just the work I’m doing, that people genuinely care about me and not just the eight hours I’m here.”
Senior Associate, Transformation Advisory Services
I serve both clients and country
As a member of the Army Reserve, I’m required to take time away to maintain my training; I couldn’t do it without the support of my team. Leaders encourage me to take time off before and after my military service days or weeks. Colleagues and leaders are genuinely interested in hearing about my experiences, and several have introduced me to others at the firm who are also in the military or interested in joining.
My colleagues are comrades
Here, I’ve built a network of individuals I truly like, respect and trust, and with whom I can be my authentic self. Even working virtually, our leaders are great about organizing online gatherings to help us stay connected. I’ve also been touched by how active they are about checking in, expressing appreciation for my contributions and making sure I’m doing well.
