Salary at Grant Thornton

What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?

It would be nice to be more transparent
Graduate, Sydney
pay is not great for the first few years
Experienced, Cairns
As a graduate, you don't expect much with pay. Instead, you are looking more to grow and expand your knowledge. GT provides a good framework for individuals to learn, and through this, you will earn more money.
Graduate, Melbourne
All pays and bonuses are quite standard which is understandable for a graduate.
Graduate, Brisbane
Pay is quite good for graduate level compared to the top tier accounting firms.
Graduate, Perth
No bonuses, however there are adequate and periodic pay rises.
Experienced, Sydney
Pay is acceptable but I do expect higher increases at every level of promotion and bonuses based on performance
Graduate, Melbourne
Pay is broadly in line with market rates, which is reassuring. No bonuses offered within my immediate team, which doesn't bother me.
Midlevel, Sydney
The starting salary is very disappointing given the amount of study required to get to the position and the stresses you sometimes face as a graduate. This would be ameliorated if, for instance, there was an opportunity to earn a bonus or additional earnings based on performance.
Graduate, ADELAIDE
Pay is quite good, I'm definitely happy with what I'm getting, I have heard of places paying much less. Of course like any other person I want more, but that will come with hard work and experience. We don't get paid a bonus, but in turn we get paid well compared to other places and have great benefits, for example, free gym membership, subsidised social events, a kitchen stocked with fruit, cereal and coffee, flexible leave policies and a whole range of other benefits.
Graduate, Sydney
For lower levels, pay is as expected for the role. However, the progression past intermediate is not great.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay structure subject to change but reliant on performance which is important
Graduate, Sydney
The pay is similar to the Big 4. It's reasonable and there are always other opportunities.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay is pretty standard for a graduate role in a mid-tier firm
Graduate, Sydney
Still at a graduate level- getting the right experience trumps the salary amount.
Graduate, Brisbane
The pay is a little above the average salary for my position. However it is quite low for a graduate salary when comparing to other industries.
Graduate, Cairns
The pay is around the average for an accountant. CA courses and memberships are all paid.
Graduate, Adelaide
Perhaps a little low, but the other inclusions we get probably make up for it.
Midlevel, Adelaide
Not much room for negotiation as a graduate.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay is industry standard but could be improved.
Graduate, Melbourne
Pay is made a significant improvement in the last few years and are competitive. However you want more, you really need to show why you deserve it and differentiate yourself substantially.
Experienced, Sydney
Specific spikes for each level of responsibility - fair.
Midlevel, Melbourne
Perhaps not as good as they could be, especially at lower levels
Midlevel, Melbourne
