    I have been working at Marcum for one year now. In the NYC office

    Current Employee - Senior Auditor in New York, NY

    I have been working at Marcum LLP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a job like any other. You have to take charge and not be in the background. Professional environment. Treated with respect from managers/supervisors. Don't expect the partners to interact with you much however.

    Cons

    Busy season work hours are long. Too long.
    Partners don't interact with staff below manager level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would ask the partners to interact more with even the staff level associates. One partner referred to the staff guy as "what's his name". This will make the staff feel appreciated and they will work even harder.

    I worked at Marcum LLP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Around the same comp/benefits as other firms.

    Cons

    Extremely toxic and dysfunctional. All the components that create a bad culture are here: bullies, political environment, favoritism, constant mergers without a good way of integrating the acquired personnel, hoarding of billable work, unrealistic budgets, undermining and backstabbing each other, pressure to charge more but no real incentives provided, hiring staff for busy season and then firing them after April 15, managers without managerial skills who enjoy ripping people to shreds, many who know very little but still extremely arrogant...too many things to list but it is not a good place unless you are a bully who enjoys the sport of demoralizing and demeaning everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have fun stabbing each other in the back and throwing under the bus.

    Pros

    Those "in the trenches" are generally good employees, hard-working and smart.

    Cons

    The Partners in Charge of the RE group are disrespectful to staff, and make questionable decisions. They treat their employees like children, with a "because I said so" attitude. Career development and growth potential are nonexistent, as is training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and appreciation go a long way. Your staff has gotten you to where you are.

    I worked at Marcum LLP full-time

    Pros

    Large firm with varied clientele. Pay is good. Nice building.

    Cons

    What you'll work on depends on who you are friendly with. This firm grows by acquisition with no plans on how to integrate staff. The offices are very cramped and managers do not have offices. Senior managers might. CPE is in-house and not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the people, not just the billing.

    Integrity of New England practice is an issue

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Marcum LLP

    Pros

    When behaving - they have the ability to act like a team.

    Have fun and know how to party.

    Do their best with the people they have.

    Cons

    New England practice has displayed serious lapses of integrity in numerous areas.

    Practice in New England was treated like a piggy bank for the parties of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a close eye on your New England practice or you could face legal and ethical consequences.

    I worked at Marcum LLP full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They tell you they work from 8:30am to 5:30am, but everyone shows up at 9:15 and leaves by 4:30.

    Cons

    No investment in their staff and no resources - The longest tenured colleague had been there for a year and a half. That's pretty much all I needed to know. All recruiters are on a draw and the two heads of the department are frat boy types that have constant inappropriate conversations about their sex lives and middle age crisis relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your staff and don't accept the insane level of attrition that you do. Be more professional.
