    I worked at James McHugh full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It used to be a great company to work for even though people at the office had terrible work ethics and/or attitude problems.

    Cons

    The last year working at McHugh was a total nightmare! You’re on your own! Managerial skills are disorganized and each department have their own rules. The accounting department is a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    None. They won’t listen.
