    Encourages entrepreneurial spirit. You get to work with a lot of different technologies.

    The expectation is that you work normal hours during the day and continue working when you are at home at night. Goals are based on a 50 hour work week minimum.

    My experience at Mcgladrey was great for a contract job.

    Pros

    The best values of working at mcgladrey was getting a inside look on how everyone operates in the firm and gaining the experience.

    Cons

    No Balance even as a contract worker, during tax season i was working 12hr shifts everyday slaving and doing what tax associates should be doing. The talent acquisitions like to recruit outside the firm before they even think about refering a intern or some one thats under contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    accommodate more interns and contract workers with postions.

  6.  

    Great experience but long hours and travel.

    Pros

    No crazy charge hour goals like big 4, good balance of life & work, has flexible work option so worktime could be flexible.

    Cons

    Not exciting bonus, salary raise is nominal. Firm is still working to differentiate itself so to outstand competitors so policies could be confusing. Turnover is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do more to retain talants (motivations thru real bonuses & real raise of base).
