    I have been working at James McHugh full-time

    Pros

    Truly a family oriented company. The fact that dozens of employees have been here for decades, speaks volumes about how the company treats its' employees. I am definitely proud to be a part of the team!

    Cons

    The elevator at the main office is pretty slow.

    I worked at James McHugh full-time (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.

    I worked at James McHugh part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is amazing. The coworkers don't feel like coworkers but more like friends and family. It is a very open environment and I can't remember a day that I did not laugh. It is a very collaborative company and you should expect to work with other people frequently. Supervisors are accessible but do not hover over you which allowed for a sense of independence.

    Cons

    As with any company, there are company politics. But other than that, no other cons can be said.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at James McHugh full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like I said above, good company, good people and good facility. I would have loved to stay in Mchugh's accounting department especially with Dan the new CFO that came on board. But we had to move because my husband got transferred, too bad.

    Cons

    Everything is very good at Mchugh, if I have to gripe, I must say although it is very good to have flex time in place but a few people blatantly took advantage of the system and as a result the department lost some of its good feelings.

    Advice to Management

    Hope the new CFO would put an end to the abusive flex timers. Other than that, Mchugh is a great place. Hope I could have stayed.

    I worked at James McHugh full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Before I started my own business I worked for McHugh for over 10 years. I have never see or experienced any discrimination. They have all sorts working for them and as long as you can do the work, you were treated with respect and paid well. Very good people to work with.

    Cons

    Just make sure you walk the walk and talk the talk. No bs at McHugh.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. A little more money doesn't hurt either.
