Pros

Not as stressful as Big Four. There is a better work-life balance, but not as much as you may think. The hours are still long, but the people I work with make them fairly enjoyable.

Good people is the main reason why I have stayed with McGladrey.

Cons

Like I said, the work-life balance could be better. Also, from the day I was hired, I felt like there wasn't very much guidance in the firm.

Advice to Management

Management could do a better job assessing the employees' work and giving valuable constructive criticism in a more timely manner.

    Pros

    - Ability to interact with different levels of management both within the firm and outside of the firm (client).
    - More exposure to varying sections of the audit as well as working on multiple engagements.

    Cons

    - The pay I would say is lower compared to other firms
    - The hours and perks aren't great.

    Advice to Management

    True, the economy is down, but management needs to consider pay to its employees. With effects of both layoffs and voluntary leave, employees left are forced to work a lot more hours without any pay increase.
