    I worked at Marcum LLP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have made lifelong friendships during my five years working at Marcum’s NYC office. I learned so much and received advice, guidance and support from all levels. The Partners and Managers in the Real Estate Group are extremely approachable and are always willing to help. The Real Estate Group has great clients and you gain a lot of exposure to the industry. The hotel clients are located in major cities and you have...

    Cons

    Busy season can be tough, but no different than any other public accounting firm.

    I worked at Marcum LLP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly entrepreneurial environment. Ideas for improvement are taken seriously. Higher management feels approachable. Teamwork and collaboration is A+. Excellent room for growth opportunities. Paid dinners during busy season if you stay late. Paid travel for business.

    Cons

    Health benefits could be better. Conference room tech needs an upgrade. Some of the upper echelons can be pretty entitled.

    Advice to Management

    Company is growing at a breakneck pace, which is a good thing but they need to slow down a bit and focus on strengthening their existing core workforce. introducing new procedures, new tools and new users to train every 3-4 months lowers overall performance. Feedback from end-users to support staff is key to ongoing improvement of support/end-user relationships.

      Pros

      They give free food every now and then. And as with any firm, there are a few good people, maybe 2% in this case... although that % is drastically dropping...

      Cons

      Oh so many... 1. Benefits are a joke 2. Yes, it is true, upper management does yell and curse at staff. Not everyone, but certain individuals do and it seems as if nothing is done about it. 3. You’re just a number here. People get laid off/fired under false pretenses, and/or if they don’t then people end up quitting within a year. 4. Your fate is entirely dependent upon which group you’re in. The odds are not in your...

      Advice to Management

      You need to start changing your corporate policies now. People first. Otherwise you’ll have this constant anxiety of being understaffed and struggling to find bodies to do the work. Get rid of the individuals who curse at their employees and start promoting the good. And please, oh please, get the walls repainted so it doesn’t seem so depressing.

      I am fairly new to Marcum myself but in the few months I have been with the firm, I do feel differently about some of the matters mentioned in this review. • I found the benefits to be fair and there to be a genuine concern that the benefits selected best suit the needs of the ...

      Pros

      Great co-workers, some kind Partners

      Cons

      Wish I could five zero stars!!!!! Employees are disposable and partners do not hide this fact. Many partners are bullies. Title I was given sounds like a disease.

      Advice to Management

      Close the Illinois division or bring in a managing partner that can pay attention to what's going on there. Management training for ALL Partners and Senior Managers.

      Pros

      There is none to be said here as a Pro.

      Cons

      Turnover is extremely high. it’s a revolving door , 2 get in and 5 get out. There are partners that scream at their staff in front of everyone in the office. Male Partners having relationships with female Managers. HR only advocates for Partners. There is no work life balance. You are just a number there. QC does what Partners tells them to do. Avoid this place at all costs.

      Won’t waste my time writing anything to them here

      Just had a merge with Marcum recently and it's been Great! Great PTO and ok benefits

      Something is going on in the DC office where there is slight favoritism of a certain someone who has just started in a new department and now there a Supervisor and now they have there own office?? Yet there are others who are now Supervisors who still are in cubes. This person's boss is letting them run the show and they no nothing about the department and yet there are others in this department who have been with this...

      Pros

      Decent staff. Staff through supervisors get along pretty well.

      Cons

      Meeting the unreasonable demands and expectations of management. They suck the life blood out of the staff by expecting them to complete work in an unrealistic time frame. No amount of reasoning will make an impression on the Real Estate Group's management.

      Advice to Management

      N/A giving advice or feedback to the partners or directors is less effective than talking to a wall.
