Management at Grant Thornton

How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

Generally accessible, but dependent on the person as always
Graduate, Sydney
Managers are always there to help you (whether it is a senior manager or a manager). They are extremely approachable and are always concerned with making sure there is a pathway and available resources to help individuals grow. There is a lot of feedback provided with the work you do which helps you grow as an individual.
Graduate, Melbourne
Most of the managers make good mentors and each has their strength and are easy to approach. They also appreciate any work performed.
Graduate, Brisbane
A majority of the managers are good mentors and coaches and encourage us to perform well and provide us with feedback. There is a small minority that did not care about some employees and only wanted to get the work done.
Graduate, Perth
Managers are quite accessible but do not always have the time to help. Assistant managers are much better to learn from.
Graduate, Melbourne
Yes - jobs are reviewed together and feedback is always given
Graduate, ADELAIDE
Mentors and managers are very accessible at GT, however I think it would be better to have an 'unofficial' mentor in the event that relations with your assigned mentor are not great.
Graduate, Sydney
My manager is one of the best. She is very friendly and always happy to help and wants the best for me in the workplace, and is realistic in her expectations of my ability within my role. She appreciates when I go above and beyond to get things done, and set me up to learn and progress.

Managers are generally quite open and welcoming.

Excellent mentor. Continuous feedbacks provided and helps to understand where I am going wrong in a very friendly manner.

Most of the managers are quite young, so they are easy to communicate with and understand your needs.

Management are all very approachable- you can go up to partners and ask about jobs! The team is willing to sit down with you and go through any questions/issues you may have. Praise is also given for jobs.
Graduate, Brisbane
Managers are very accessible. Some walk around and come and talk to you about non-work related stuff too. They constantly praise staff and provide performance feedback.
Graduate, Cairns
The managers are very accessible and supportive. When they are in the office they are more than willing to see down and have a conversation and check how you are going. We fill out job appraisal forms for every client that we spend a significant amount of time on which is then given to the manager and returned with personal feedback.
Graduate, Adelaide
Managers are generally very approachable and willing to lend a hand. Partners always reward good work/production - for example we had a good three months of production so they threw a pizza lunch.

Can always talk to your manager, no real hierarchy or barrier.
