I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time for more than a year

Pros

Learned a lot of different types of tax returns from different industries. Given a lot of responsibility early on and was able to be accountable for my own work.

Cons

Long hours, not many "perks" offered by larger firms to compensate for time spent working. Raises and bonuses were not equal to performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to be more collaborative with the team instead of creating dissension.

    I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I don't have any. My experience working in Atlanta showed me that the firm is a mess and the local Atlanta management is incompetent.

    Cons

    The firm has several policies which are not conducive to promoting good morale. They nickel and dime their employees on expenses as well. Further, the firm does not operate like a large accounting firm even though it is the 5th largest in the US. The firms offices operate as if they are local accounting firms under the McGladrey umbrella. There is not standardized practice. Audit methodology is not uniform throughout the firm. Everything is done differently depending on what office is doing the work. Long story short, they are a mess. There is a reason the entire audit staff quit at the end of 2011 and many of the tax staff left at the same time.

    I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time

    Pros

    Will learn a lot as this is a very fast paced office. Pushed beyond what you think your limit is, but realize you can actually do it.

    Cons

    Too fast paced. Never a slow time of year and extensive travel. Lack of team work and trust. No understanding of the need to complete CPA exam.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and stop being so hands off
