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

Pros

Worklife balance is great and not questioned. Early career opportunities are there and help you grow.

Cons

Narrow and small minded culture. Not interested in growing capability and creating and engaging environment for professional and career advancement long term. It is a four year stop shop.

Advice to Management

None. Most of the management will not listen. They have good folks in Joe and the rest of the leadership team. However there is a deep malaise across the entire partnership.

    Pros

    Extremely good experience out of college. Work with other CPA's who are willing to train you from the very beginning. Good income potential if public accounting is meant for you.

    Cons

    When economy tanked, perks, bonuses and raises were taken away. More work was required out of busy season than was communicated before taking the job.

    Advice to Management

    Provide bonuses and raises for individuals who show hard work throughout the year. Increase staffing levels in order for current employees to have a "work life balance".


  2. "Good stepping stone"

    Pros

    There is plenty of variety in jobs and you gain lots of experience in all audit sections very quickly. They are pretty flexible about time off when needed for family and will allow you to work from home if you need to stay home for the plumber, etc. Lots of client interaction. All in all, it is a good place to work to get your time in to obtain your CPA license.

    Cons

    Busy season can be grueling if you don't schedule a short vacation somewhere in the middle. I stress short, otherwise you fall behind quickly in work during this time. There is little to no training when you start and upper level staff are too busy to train. High turnover, though there always is in public accounting. Can be very stressful at times. Incentive pay is non-existant in the lower levels no matter how well you do. Job performance reviews are a joke. They seem to have eliminated peer reviews and reviews of your supers, managers and directors.

    Advice to Management

    Career advisors and mentors are a joke - they don't have time to mentor!
