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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Marcum LLP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is a good place to grow. Exposure to all kind of work is available, therefore, there are many learning opportunities. Generally, people is nice. There are many good treats for the employees (massage, snacks, meals, events), as well as a good balance between work and life

    Cons

    The bottom line is that you are just a number... realization. Also, promotions do not seem to be aligned with hard work or knowledge; they seem to be more aligned to who you are associated to or who you work with. At the end of the day, if you are not material for promotion and they need your spot fo someone below you that is being promoted, you are out of the door.

    Current Employee - Auditing Supervisor in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Auditing Supervisor in New York, NY

    I have been working at Marcum LLP full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Senior Auditor in New York, NY

    I have been working at Marcum LLP full-time (more than a 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.

    Current Employee - Auditing Supervisor in Roseland, NJ
    Current Employee - Auditing Supervisor in Roseland, NJ

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

    Pros

    A few good people who should have been promoted a long time ago.

    Cons

    Career development is non-existent. Long hours. Discrimination. Partners have had multiple sexual harassment claims against them especially in the AIG group. Known for hiring and laying off dozens of staff right after busy season, then hiring every November/December. Offices are run down. No partner interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on merit not tenure. Try listening to all employees across all levels not just managers you have close relationships with. Show more appreciation to your staff. Pay good people what they are worth. Make more room for ambitious staff that want to grow.
