    Pros

    The firm has great values and they truly believe in them and promote them from the top down. For instance, the value of stewardship is lived up to through various volunteer opportunities and firm sponsored events. The firm does do a good job promoting work life balance and in my experience really cares about their employees. For being the fifth largest firm, the firm does a great job of giving employees meaningful client experiences from day 1, and employees will get experiences and responsibilities they would not get at Big 4. Compensation increases are fair and sometimes very high with bonuses. There are a lot of training opportunities and other great opportunities for those who want them.

    Cons

    It is public accounting, and there will sometimes be long hours. The flip side of that is that when it is not busy, you are encouraged to go on vacation and take time for yourself.

    Pros

    The client opportunities and work experience allows you to develop your personal skillset and take pride in your work. Partners and Directors are always open-door and are great to work with. Employees work with you to help you develop, and the mentor program is great. Overall, outstanding morale at the company. Great training and professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    Benefits could need some improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into compensation and benefits in comparison to Big 4. Other than that, keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great and you will learn a lot from each engagement. In the summer you will have some down time to recoup from busy season. If you need a flex schedule they are more than willing to accommodate. The raises are a decent % however, the work load just gets harder.

    Cons

    Personal growth can be a challenge if you don't get into the "A Team" your first busy season or if you rub a certain partner the wrong way it can destroy your career at McGladrey. Some people are outgoing and will teach/help you with something even if your not working on their client but most are too overwhelmed with their own work and would rather just finish your work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training received on the job needs to improve. The week long training is helpful but it doesn't cover most issues that are encountered at clients. Often in-charges and managers have no time to assist you and really walk through things so you can really take away from the experience.

    Pros

    Fellow workers and Work life balance, willing to help advance career and achieve goals. Great benefit package with insurance, 401k, education reimbursement and flexible hours

    Cons

    Few non-team member players but they are countered by great benefits and others who are will ing to help. Some what green on common procedural process but is make an effort to correct that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very strong and willing to listen. Takes active role in helping other succeed. Motivational and good leaders, knowledgeable of the subject matter and is always willing to seek someone who is an SME for verification. Great Team of Leaders with Employee focus and direction

    Pros

    I worked in the New Bern office. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, as well as intelligent. You could tell they cared about your future, as well as your future with McGladrey. The office environment was more laid back than say the Charlotte office.

    Long hours during tax season
