    I have been working at McGladrey LLP (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training, opportunity to act HIGHLY above level (both responsibility and expectation wide)

    Acting multiple levels above current rank without pay or any attention; no life balance; boys club; be expected to be taken advantage of

    Advice to Management

    Selling a position based on fictional details doesn't benefit anyone.

    I have been working at McGladrey LLP as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I just started at McGladrey and I love it here. The work environment is great. Focusing on the middle market really differentiates the culture of McGladrey from their competitors. Looking forward to working here for the rest of the summer.

    Cons

    I honestly have not found any cons. The only thing I might say is that the New York office is quite crammed. Hopefully they will be able to change offices or expand within the current building.

    Advice to Management

    I have not been working at McGladrey long enough to give advice to management. Still in the stages of them giving advice to me. I will write another review at the end of the summer.

    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    First regional sales manager was a very fair and decent person, a pleasure to report to and helped us to try and meet our goals. They are generous with paid time off. Some of the co-workers were very cool people to work with.

    Cons

    There's huge turnover with managers at this firm. We inherited a different sales manager over time and it became painful to report to this person so the team fell apart., it was like watching a train wreck in progress so quite disastrous. There are some managers who don't understand why sales at this accounting firm is important and they refuse to take their blinders off. The marketing dept is a disaster and painful to work with as well.

    Advice to Management

    Certain sales teams needs a new manager. Understand why sales is important and become more sales-oriented.

    Pros

    Full ownership of work, decent work life balance

    Cons

    Was not trained at ALL, was treated with racial prejudice and had a 2.5 hour commute each way! All this was on top of a bait and switch in the offer letter. Also did not get fully reimbursed for my expenses (and reimbursement process is typically longer than CC billing cycle, you will incur the float)

    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - being able to work with smaller clients
    - using tax software to prepare returns

    Cons

    - office culture in the NY office is beyond terrible
    - demand you commute to the office on the weekends even if there isn't any work to be assigned
    - no AC during the summer months when told to work on said weekends, stuck using a desk fan
    - Management has little to no personality
    - Management gives you the impression they will work with you and train you but once you are hired and started could care less about you
    - health benefits are the worst i've seen in the industry

    Advice to Management

    The current staff in the NY tax dept now are the main reason why there has been so much attrition. In the few months of my employment I saw multiple managers, supervisors and staff leave because of the culture alone. Does not promote a friendly environment to work in and just makes people want to leave.

    Pros

    Ability to work at home when not visiting clients

    Cons

    No organization or procedures in place. High turnover, and the clients know it, so reinventing analysis every year. Upper management either nasty in the wrong role.

    Advice to Management

    I think many of the problems are particular to the New York Office. Midwest and Boston seem to know what time it is.

    Flexible work arrangements would be great.
