    I worked at Margolis Phipps & Wright P.C. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable employees and partners. Compensation is good.

    Cons

    I echo the complaints of some of the other reviewers. The politics and gossip are horrible. Management fully participates in both. You can get on a good team or a bad team (it runs about 50/50 so your fate is a coin flip there). Partners fight over good people and try to pawn bad ones off on other partners all the while giving no thought to how that affects the staff. Management routinely speaks poorly of staff to other staff members.

    Other the other hand, hiring to fire is part of the tax business. It happens here just like it does at every other public accounting firm. Plus MPW's standards cannot be too strict as there are quite a few idiots that have worked there for years...they are nice idiots but idiots nonetheless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your politics and gossip to yourselves. Make path to promotion transparent.

    Pros

    If you are looking to work overtime, you will get alot of that here. The pay os okay, and the health insurance benefits are awesome.

    Cons

    Long Hours, work politics, hring to fire - they hire around tax time then fire afterwards. You are required to come in even during religious holidays and if you don't , you get blacklisted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with your employees, be ethical. Don't let employees fee lthreatened, especially when it comes to their source of livelihood.

    The weekly EGBA time reports holding the rest of the company back.

    Pros

    Will get good experience working at the company. Great overview of the entire tax process. Such as partnerships, trust, some corporations, and individuals.

    Cons

    Weekly time reports, the EGBA reports are very taxing. If I did not have to deal with the EGBA reports the company is great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the EGBA Reports. It is out dated, not user friendly, over capitalized, over amortized, and a sunk cost!!!

    I worked at Margolis Phipps & Wright P.C.

    Pros

    Most of the people there know what they are doing and do it well. For the most part the people there are nice and helpful.

    Cons

    The technology is dated. Still using paper work papers and have no desire to go paperless. There seems to be no desire to update to a paperless system.
    The team that you are on dictates your work environment. If you are unfortunate enough to work with the wrong team then the work place can be hostile. Otherwise, it’s a pretty laid back atmosphere. So it really is a coin toss there. You have been warned!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall this is a good company. The work is challenging, most of the people are friendly and willing to help each other out. Training is decent. Just need more technology update and to not let the few dictate the work environment of the entire company.
