For those working in FDD at Grant Thornton, how has it been recently? Has there been a lot of turnover? How many hours do you typically work a week and are you continuously being put on projects or are there weeks where you’re on the sideline not doing anything?

Consistently busy since i started in fall 2020. ramped up from training and been on 3-5 deals consistently and future deal flow is...flowing...

So far I'd say it's been pretty chill, the hours have never been bad, 45-50 per week max. Deal flow has been consistent. Pay is probably the only downside

Is there a referral bonus?

Haven’t had a week where I wasn’t doing anything since September 2021 when I started. I think your workload will depend on your office.

Yep. They’re pretty respectful about that. However, the nature of this work is unpredictable. That’s something you gotta understand before doing FDD anywhere l, and there likely will be times where you’ll be asked to work a little when OOO.

How is the training?

I started last Monday as a senior. This week I was put on a program to shadow another senior beginning to end on a deal. From what I was told the program is 9 weeks. So there's a possibility to see multiple deals and get upto speed with another senior looking over.

3-5 deals at the same time

Currently an analyst in private management and thinking of switching to portfolio management for a big tech company (mainly for the life style). I am scared I’ll be missing out of the Advisor path which in theory has unlimited upside and good WLB. But I look at my current advisors and don’t necessarily like I envy them or feel like I am learning anything from them. Honestly feeling lost. Anyone has thoughts/tips/opinions? Anyone works in portfolio manager at a tech company and want to share?

To be clear, this isn't about the money. It's about the hassle. I'd just rather pay an upfront gratuity fee that covers all of tips for the entire stay.

Any tips will be much appreciated.
