I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Do not work as late of hours as the big 4 with relatively comparable pay and benefits. My co workers are my friends and we create the office culture.

Cons

It is like any public accounting firms where you can expect to work long hours during busy season. It is too concentrated in the midwest. Needs to make the name more known in the east and west.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better recruitment processes to differentiate between the big 4. Also need to look at what opportunities and benefits the big 4 bring to the table that MG can implement.

    Pros

    Ever since McGladrey bought back the consulting business from H&R Block, they have been making some major changes on how to operate and they have been growing non-stop. Consulting, unlike Audit and Tax, has an extremely low turn-over. Hours are very reasonable and the people, that's what makes it. The consulting group has some of the most energetic, bright, and passionate people in the business.

    -Very bright and passionate co workers. People here are very intelligent and superiors are always very helpful, especially to new hires.
    - Upper management is very transparent about issues and events
    - Consulting is very laid back, working approx 35-40 hours a week and very low turnover.
    - Opportunity to work in various industries and meet many people
    - Great work/life balance
    - Bonuses are great

    Cons

    - Being on the bench can be boring
    - Salary isn't as high as other smaller firms

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements
    Variety of assignment
    Good culture

    Cons

    Comp has been an issue for the past several years. My first year we didn't even get rasies or bonuses.
    Promotions are limited
    High attrition and poor morale in the Irvine office on the tax side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward employees better for their hard work and efforts
    Review/realign leadership in Irvine
    Pay more attention or morale and why it may be low
