    Pros

    Very good entry level salary right out of college
    Very helpful with CPA exam prep and bonuses for passing
    Good PTO policy

    During busy season 55 hours a week are required including work on saturdays.
    During this time only pre scheduled PTO is allowed.

    Pros

    Everyone at Marcum was incredibly friendly and supportive. Even during tax season when times get a little hectic and there is need to meet deadlines, the staff and managers made sure it was not too overwhelming.

    Cons

    Pay was a little low compared to other accounting firms for interns at $15/hour,

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Hours are not bad, except for the busy season, january thru may must come in on saturdays. PTO is good, typical for the industry tho. Easy to get promoted if you befriend right people.
    OK as a transitional place or if you can't find a better job. Would not recommend otherwise.

    Cons

    Everything else. Pervy leadership guys. Very few sharp people. Pay and benefits are not competitive. No perks. Ugly office. Disastrous clients as mostly public penny stocks. No name recognition. Deteriorating culture.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people, they leave for a reason.

    Pros

    1. Bagels on Wednesdays.
    2. You can openly date your coworkers/partners/lower level employees.

    Cons

    1. Benefits are a joke: very expensive health insurance and joke of a 401k match which doesn't even vest for 5 years. Don't get fooled by a slightly higher base.
    2. Lack of bright people.
    3. Scheduling is preposterous, absurd time/client/location conflicts and overscheduling all the time. The worst.
    4. CPA bonus is 40% of what big firms offer + you only get half of it right away another half a year later if you (a) still work there (b) remind them. Exam fees or study materials are not reimbursed.
    5. Performance bonus is a joke and is also paid in two parts over 6 months. Not an incentive.
    6. Bonuses and promotions work in very mysterious ways, no transparency whatsoever.
    7. Very unprofessional environment, comes from the top.
    8. Incompetent managers, often no technical, managerial or people skills, Non-CPAs managers/senior managers are not a rarity
    9. Extreme voluntary turnover, people no longer get laid off in April, there is simply no need for that.
    10. Sub-par client base
    11. 50% of workload is administrative & word processing
    12. Useless training, very poor quality
    13. No diversity
    14. Does not do much to your resume or career

    Advice to Management

    Stop writing OBVIOUSLY fake reviews about yourself. No one in their right mind would write something like that about ANY accounting firm, especially yours.
