    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You will get a lot of experience of specific industries.

    Cons

    It is a national firm that you can get national exposure, but if you do then you will have no one to support you or be able to advance your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support those that have good work and are involved nationally. Provide actual mentorship for those that are looking for it and try to accept blame for when things happen and not just take the credit for the good.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    When business was booming, management handled employees as a family environment. To survive failing economy, drastic measures were taken to become a difficult work environment.

    Cons

    To cut back on costs, partners were provided a severance package or to step down to a managerial position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management start from the top. If CEO is not likeable, staff will leave
