Initial training is good, and ongoing technical training - but very little on the job training as you continue to keep progressing
As a new associate you are provided with plenty of training, before you start you will go through a handful of live webinars with your fellow new starters more generally on things like excel skills, how to complete timesheets, how to request leave, etc. once you start, there is a one week training program each year for your first 3 years where you travel to one of the interstate offices and meet all of the other associates who started in the same year as you from across the country and do technical training on the new Audit sections you are likely to be responsible for in that year.
Regular training session of various subject matters, allowing for a holistic development of the employee. I personally have learnt a lot by attending PRINCE2 learning session on project management principles as well as how to operate using Power BI for better Data Visualisation.
Very supportive of on the job and external learning
I've learnt everything as I go from job to job. Audit is a pretty standard process and most things apply to all clients.
There is regular formal training programmes for a variety of technical and non-technical skills. I have in my 3 months working at GT have learnt about Power-BI, supply chains, how to set up my LinkedIn profile and more.
On the job training is adequate
Training is often done online when we're busy, better to do in the office so we can all focus on it (although I recognise this has been hampered by COVID).
Training based on needs, seniors are very helpful for on-the-job.
Training can arrange from GT organised training to team training sessions and down to 1 on 1 training sessions with people in my team which has helped me to build my understanding about specific concepts in tax and processes around the firm.
We run group audit sessions which help see the practical application
Whilst there was an onboarding with P&C, there was not nearly enough team specific training to allow graduates to gain an understanding of the specifics of their role.
The company has provided standard formal training around company procedures and policies. I have learnt most of the technical and practical skills on the job.
training and development is lacking, graduate training is very informal/short and on the job training is explained quite poorly. You will most often learn through making mistakes/personal experiences
There are many training opportunities provided on a weekly basis, to further enhance both my Restructuring skills and knowledge and broader accounting skills.
People are very helpful and understanding but training should be improved
The training and development culture is not big at a junior level. There is the monthly tax astute but only some of the content is relevant for junior staff. There is a push during PICs to sign up for training courses offered but overall the culture is not there
Intensive training at the beginning, regular training sessions once you commence work, ad-hoc training in later stages.
Quite good and thorough. Some A1a training seemed rushed and unprepared.
Attended a week of formal training at the start. Mostly on the job training though, which I feel the onus is on myself to ask questions to be able to perform certain tasks.
