    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Assurance Services. Great client base. Knowledgeable and accessible partners. Invested a lot in employees. Great culture. Let you be in charge of your career path and gave you tools to get there. Comp was reasonable. Great for someone looking to really kick-start their career in P/A or finance/accounting.

    Cons

    Like all those in P.A - long hours and some grunt work with clients. Not as transparent as they should have been with comp and reviews - but that just may be the industry.

    Advice to Management

    The Baltimore office should be standard of what the organization should be across the nation. Great leadership, valued employees and truly cared about their clients.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. Made an effort to promote work/life balance.

    Cons

    The company was in transition for most of my 5 years. The pain of integrating small acquired firms into a national practice. Inconsistent direction and lack of clear focus.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to continue its effort organize itself and ensure consistent messaging from local leadership
