    Pros

    The office is in a nice building and great location

    Cons

    The culture is absolutely terrible. It is a dog-eat-dog environment. Lot's of backstabbing and gossip behind people's backs. You cannot trust anyone or believe anything people say. They overwork and deplorably underpay you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is too valuable to freely give to this company.

    Pros

    Standard corporate consulting firm, you'll get some good experience to land a job somewhere else.

    Cons

    Very little employee engagement, limited growth opportunities, too much focus on billable goals.

    I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Looks great on your resume to have such a big company that you have worked for. I know it will possibly be the help I need for future job choices. I get no benefits, had minimum training, and because "i'm still in college" I do not qualify. I would only take a job here if you are offered a permenate possition when you are starting.

    Cons

    I have had minimum training on my work and I am treated as if I dont know how to do my own job even though I have worked hard to learn everything I needed to know. I do not get any benefits from the company because I am a full-time temp employee, even though i have been here for over a year. I was told that when i graduate college we would "discuss" the possibility of becoming a permenate employee, but there is someone who has graduated in May and he has yet to even recieve a raise and he was promised a permenate possition the 4 years he has been working here. I would only recommend this company if you are planning to find some other form of employment but just need a job to pay the bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management needs to learn how to be proper manager. They all need to go back to school to learn how to actually be leaders of the company. The manager over me constantly takes his frustration with the company out on those who are unfortunite enough to work under him. There is a MAJOR issue of favoritism here.

    Pros

    The client opportunities and work experience allows you to develop your personal skillset and take pride in your work. Partners and Directors are always open-door and are great to work with. Employees work with you to help you develop, and the mentor program is great. Overall, outstanding morale at the company. Great training and professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    Benefits could need some improvement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into compensation and benefits in comparison to Big 4. Other than that, keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Learning opportunities, knowing your trajectory, a handful of good people who care about you and your career

    Cons

    It's public accounting, now matter how they try to differentiate themselves from the Big 4. Long hours, miserable people, and sometimes you're stuck with horrible teams. Because you start in a 'class,' it can sometimes be high school with the cliques, gossip and drama. If you don't fit into the mold, it can be rough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more seniors so that they can focus on developing staff. Make it worthwhile to stay there.

  8. My experience at Mcgladrey was great for a contract job.

    I worked at McGladrey LLP

    Pros

    The best values of working at mcgladrey was getting a inside look on how everyone operates in the firm and gaining the experience.

    Cons

    No Balance even as a contract worker, during tax season i was working 12hr shifts everyday slaving and doing what tax associates should be doing. The talent acquisitions like to recruit outside the firm before they even think about refering a intern or some one thats under contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    accommodate more interns and contract workers with postions.

    Former Employee - Tax Director

    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good flexibility. Dynamic group. Good marketplace recognition. People in my office group were very friendly. National level talent in technical areas.

    Cons

    Promotion opportunity was limited and seemed like a moving target. Compensation was at least 25% below market. It may have been close when I started but was not accelerated as quickly as the market. I left for a 35% increase. It bothered me that the company could get rid of partners with 25-30 years with the firm so readily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose track of market value for people who have been with the firm. You will have to replace them at market, why not keep the ones you rate well in performance reviews?
