    I have been working at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    I grew up at this firm - I started my first week out of college. Many of my peers have moved around to several jobs but I've always found that the best way for me to grow my career was to stay put here at MP. My managers and partners have always given me opportunities and tools to reach the next level. I received 4 promotions in my time here which has made me feel recognized and let me know that my career was moving forward....

    Cons

    Would really like to see an improved 401k match.

    I have been working at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Lots of vacation time, fun employee days, summer fridays, many interesting people

    Cons

    It can be stressful at times - but any leading firm would be the same.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing work from home flexibility.

    I have been working at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    If you want to stay in public for your full career and go partner, this is the firm to do it with (I drank the kool-aid but stand by it). If you express willingness to go beyond the scope of the day to day (e.g. recruiting and attending events), there is support from the firm to enable you to do so which is good for the firm but also for you as you grow beyond the day to day grind of a desk job.

    Cons

    If you just want to show up and do your job, you'll do fine....but don't expect fast promotions. Better 401k match would be nice.

      I have been working at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The professional staff is awesome and great to work with. Good life/work balance. Receive time and a half during busy season due to NYC law.

      Cons

      The firm's PSG is one of the most poorly run and inconsistent review departments I've ever dealt with at a CPA firm and it is EXHAUSTING keeping up with their changes. Management doesn't care.

      Advice to Management

      Stop letting PSG run audits.

      I have been working at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      I think management is dedicated to making positive improvements in the personal and professional lives of staff in so many different ways (networking, wellness, career advancement, benefits, support of working parents, casual dress, etc.). The rate of positive change makes for a very rewarding experience at the firm and I'm proud to be a part of it.

      Cons

      I have no cons to share.

      I worked at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Pay OT Generous PTO and paid holiday casual attire: able to wear jeans everyday if you dont need to meet with a client. However, not allow to wear sneakers. Warning, HR walk around the office and check if you are wearing the appropriated shoes.

      Cons

      Poor Management: some employees watch netflix and take 3 hrs lunch breaks and still able to get away. No punishment and they get rewarded for the minimum work they do. While the hard working employees get nothing ( no promotion nor a good raise). Special treatment to certain people. Benefit sucks HR is not helpful and extremely unprofessional. They dont take employee inputs Promotion is slow

      I have been working at Marks Paneth full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      People are treated as adults, no micromanaging, free busy season dinners

      Cons

      Does not have a good onboarding process. Not a cohesive environment, for instance you cannot go to anyone for help, each team is completely separate, also people are hired only for busy season and they are not upfront about it. Also beware of starting off on the wrong foot with a certain Bipolar manager in the New York Office , she has some kind of hold over the partners and you can get fired if she does not like you...
