    I worked at Marcum LLP full-time

    Pros

    Some good people here. I feel sorry for them.

    Cons

    NYC office is a dungeon. Not modern, dim lighting, not a very well taken care of space. Almost zero natural light. Company culture, passed down from upper management, is archaic. Whatever is on the website regarding that doesn't apply to most employees. HR is not there for staff interests, they serve upper management, to the point discussions had in confidence will be shared with the wrong ears. All this company cares about is billable hours, and padding the partners' bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up.

    Pros

    Working busy season hours year round

    Cons

    The new Chicago/Deerfield office is a disaster. They have no idea how to motivate employees - forget to hire kids out of college for 2 years in row resulting in significant staffing issues. 80% of the audit staff from staff to senior manager have left in the last 6 months. Pay is below market competition by $20k on avg.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up - take a tougher stand on clients that are never ready on time and realize your employees are your number one assets

    Pros

    If you are female and know how to flirt with male bosses then you are safe. Espicaially in Fort Lauderdale. Everyone else beware of working here

    Cons

    Zero chance of being a partner, zero reasons to work here. Go with another firm.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cheating on your wives with co-workers. Its like a banking environment in that place.

    Pros

    - Decent pay and PTO
    - Lower level staff incredibly friendly

    Cons

    - The mindset of many of the senior management folks was antiquated at best. Upper management apparently expects this to be 1950 again with the attire and work ethic.
    - The poor IT folks.
    - Very demanding when sometimes you have little to no workload.
    - Too strict of hours in today's climate
    - Bizarre culture with very apparent favorites-playing.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that your newer employees are of a different generation and that YOU have to adapt sometimes, not always them. Don't assume people know immediately how to do something when they've never been trained on it. This isn't 1950 anymore and it's not the halls of the GOP.

    Pros

    Marcum does have a wide variety of clients which provides staff with great expierence. Marcum Foundation is also a pro.

    Cons

    Before the merger happened in late 2015, Marcum was an amazing place to work. The morale was off the charts. Management cared about lower level employees and it was definitely a team environment. Post merger, the office was done a complete 180. Every day great employees are quiting. No one enjoys coming to work anymore. They moved us into Center City Philadelphia without compensating us for the Philadelphia wage tax upon the move. When raises came around in September management thought they could pull a fast one and gave us "raises" that only covered the increased tax. Absolutely the worst company I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! But I'm sure you won't.
