Bonus Watch: Impatient Grant Thornton Employees with Big Expectations

This just in:

Grant Thornton will pay out bonuses early this year (July 21). They will electronically disseminate salary and bonus information on July 14. All I'm saying is they better be good.

Our tipster included an excerpt from an alleged message to the troops:

At Grant Thornton, our people are talented, intellectually curious and driven to make a difference for our clients and community every day. We pride ourselves on cultivating a culture where people are inspired to bring their whole selves to work. We look to each employee to collaborate in support of Grant Thornton’s growth and priorities, and seek to reward you for your contributions.

As individuals and teams we all worked very hard in fiscal year 2015, and we should celebrate the successes we achieved. In an effort to recognize you for your contributions to the firm’s success during the past year, we are pleased to announce that bonuses will be paid approximately one month earlier than in previous years. 

So while the most dynamic GT employees will enjoy their bonuses a little earlier, those with a more disappointing result may find something else to do with their lives.
