Pros

Smart individuals, challenging work and pace, competitive salary for a middle market firm but would be considered low for the big 4

Cons

Mandatory saturdays for 4 months a year. Can be difficult to get promoted in units that are top heavy. Salary increases have been put off with the downturn in the economy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employee retention, even in this difficult market, is going to require employees feeling like they are rewarded for their hard work with more than the right to keep their job.

    Pros

    There is plenty of variety in jobs and you gain lots of experience in all audit sections very quickly. They are pretty flexible about time off when needed for family and will allow you to work from home if you need to stay home for the plumber, etc. Lots of client interaction. All in all, it is a good place to work to get your time in to obtain your CPA license.

    Cons

    Busy season can be grueling if you don't schedule a short vacation somewhere in the middle. I stress short, otherwise you fall behind quickly in work during this time. There is little to no training when you start and upper level staff are too busy to train. High turnover, though there always is in public accounting. Can be very stressful at times. Incentive pay is non-existant in the lower levels no matter how well you do. Job performance reviews are a joke. They seem to have eliminated peer reviews and reviews of your supers, managers and directors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career advisors and mentors are a joke - they don't have time to mentor!

    Pros

    Steep learning curve and ability to gain a wide array of accounting and audit experience quickly. McGladrey offers unparalleled access to mid sized companies and the ability to work with management/ownership of many clients.

    Cons

    Although McGladrey markets itself as being a company strongly focused on work life balance, few if any of their programs to follow through on that tag line are effective or realistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the summer flex hour plan, in its current form it's not a real strong benefit. Rethink busy season and ways to truly be the employer who values work life balance - initiatives don't have to be ground breaking, maybe a flex weekend off in the middle or some form of a rotating schedule.
