I have been working at McGladrey LLP

Pros

The best reason to work at McGladrey is it is a national firm and you can get your experience to get your CPA license

Cons

Plenty of downsides. The leadership at this firm does not know what it is doing. We are continually receiving emails telling us how great changes will be (such as the Partners reacquiring RSM McGladrey) however it looks like all it is helping is the Partners and Directors. There has been a ton of turnover in the past few months and it has left the rest of us with more on our plate than we can handle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Partners and Directors need to attend some leadership training as they are very poor in communicating and relating to us staff.

    Pros

    There seems to be more of an overall work life balance at McGladrey compared to firms of a similar size.

    Cons

    Benefits have declined in recent years and compensation is not always competitive. The firm doesn't always treat top employees well enough to retain them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more generous with compensation at lower levels in order to retain top talent. Keep communicating with employees regularly regarding significant changes.

    Took me two years before I realized I should leave

    Former Employee - Audit Associate

    I worked at McGladrey LLP

    Pros

    Met some great friends, learned about audit, not a bad place to start. I left after two years when I realized I would be happier in a big 4 environment (so far so good btw)

    Cons

    compensation is a joke compared to competing firms (midtier and big 4).
    hours aren't any better than competing firms.
    Staffing of jobs seems to be completely random, no logic whatsoever.
    Firings/layoffs happen more often than they should, and to people who aren't deserving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck, I feel like this firm has been going downhill for awhile.
