    I worked at Sax Macy Fromm & Co full-time

    Pros

    Hours during busy season are decent.

    Cons

    I have been in the industry for 13 years, and this is EASILY the worst place I have ever had the displeasure of working. Partners and managers treat staff horribly. They are arrogant, rude, and act like they work at a big 4 firm. Someone should remind them that they work at a firm in Clifton, NJ that nobody has ever heard of. Turnover is awful. Unless you are young, cannot get another job, and want to use this place as a spring board, run screaming.

    I worked at Sax Macy Fromm & Co full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Macy's is a great place to work if you are in need of immediate employment and plan on moving onto something better.

    Cons

    My experience at Macy's was that you were expected to sacrifice a lot without much reward.

    I have been working at Sax Macy Fromm & Co full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Full training in all aspects of accounting and tax. I felt super prepared. Friends in other places didn't receive the same. Most vacation time out of all the firms I interviewed with. Coworkers get together outside of work too which is nice. I would remain friends with people even if I left.

    Cons

    OT in the summer and fall sometimes. I would also like more feedback on how I'm doing.

    Advice to Management

    keep making improvements and implementing new ideas. maybe have anonymous forum where staff can submit ideas.

    I have been working at Sax Macy Fromm & Co full-time

    Pros

    The staff (not management) is great! You build long lasting friendships with them. Training program is like no other and they do care about the development of the staff. They have a soda machine that is free which I guess is good. The office itself is very nice even though most of the staff sits in cubicles.

    Cons

    Office politics are the worst and they start with the Human Resources dept and Partner. In order to rank high in the ratings, they would ask their employees to write good reviews on Glassdoor and on surveys given out.

    Advice to Management

    Advice? Why bother, they won't listen.

    Don't let the bad apples go quick enough. Would like to see more new faces.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the bad apples they're ruining it for everyone else!

    Pros

    Other than tax season, hours are very reasonable. Not much else

    Cons

    Ever since the economy went south, upper management started to treat the employees like garbage. They have laid people off like its a bodily function. At its peak Sax Macy had approximately 130 employees, Sax Macy is currently at maybe 100 employees. Office politics is unbearable. Constructive criticism is given too late and management is all too eager to throw people under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Partners need to start treating its employees with respect.
