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

    Pros

    Friendly people, lots of room for growth, respectable salary, treats you like an actual employee

    Cons

    There is a lot of information and content to learn coming in as a student and management or co-workers may not always have time to help you when needed. There is no training program for short term workers like interns or coop students.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a basic training program for interns/coop students- this will result in less needing of help or explanation from other co-workers or management and less misunderstandings

    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time

    Pros

    I loved working McGladrey and can say without hesitation that I would absolutely work there again. People are important and treated well. Lots of opportunity for growth and professional development for those who are self-motivated. Good mentoring and career guidance programs. Flex work programs are available.

    Cons

    There is always room for improvement. As with any accounting firm, there are still some old-fashioned leaders that feel total billable hours and face-time are more important than net margin. Older leaders also complain occasionally about the poor work ethics of millennials. Busy season hours are like any other accounting firm. Flex work programs are available, but office level management seems reluctant to allow.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage office level management to make flexible work arrangements available - sometimes staff is reluctant to ask as they fear it will reflect badly on them.

    Friendly atmosphere

    Great location

    Interesting work

    You must enter at least 5 words for Pros

    Cons

    Observing and hearing about the bickering and turf wars was distracting and a hindrance to business.

    Recruiting demands were over the top during busy season.

    Office was a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    People are assets. Treat them as such.

    I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working at RSM for 4 months and I do not think anyone at the company knows I work here. I went into the office on my first day and I have not been back since. When I worked in Big 4 Tax I was expected in the office all day. I have received a steady paycheck since my start date.

    Cons

    This is the best place to work!!! i cannot communicate any negatives!!!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you!!

    Busy season, but it is normal for public accounting.

    Advice to Management

    Mentor your staff better.
