    I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are great and you will learn a lot from each engagement. In the summer you will have some down time to recoup from busy season. If you need a flex schedule they are more than willing to accommodate. The raises are a decent % however, the work load just gets harder.

    Cons

    Personal growth can be a challenge if you don't get into the "A Team" your first busy season or if you rub a certain partner the wrong way it can destroy your career at McGladrey. Some people are outgoing and will teach/help you with something even if your not working on their client but most are too overwhelmed with their own work and would rather just finish your work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training received on the job needs to improve. The week long training is helpful but it doesn't cover most issues that are encountered at clients. Often in-charges and managers have no time to assist you and really walk through things so you can really take away from the experience.

    Pros

    Great People to work with. Good money.

    Cons

    Long hours and have to travel often

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to schedule people on clients closer to their homes. Employees would be more willing to work longer hours.
