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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, training, ability to work in different cities for this company.

    Cons

    When McGladrey (now RSM) aquired the wonderful, boutique CPA firm of Margolis Phipps & Wright, they began cleaning house. Close to 50% of the employees are no longer there because those who did not fit RSM's cookie cutter employee type either left or were fired. A lot of talented people are now at other firms.

    Advice to Management

    Value people for their strengths and place them where they can shine.

    Pros

    Great straight out of collage, you learn so many different technologies, from Firewalls to Routers, Switches, Servers, VMware and so on.
    Lots of room for growth
    They treat you very nicely
    So much learned
    Fantastic Management!

    Cons

    Billing hours created stress for me over time, and that builds. Hours were too long, but thats the nature of consulting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, you guys were great to me and provided great support and feedback. I really felt like you all cared about my growth, and I appreciated that.
