Good with the Bad
Tax Accountant (Former Employee) –  Rochester, MNSeptember 11, 2018
RSM does a great job at work-life balance. You are able to work odd hours, work remotely, work part-time in the off season. Also there is unlimited PTO which is nice as you just need to get you work done and can take time off. However I feel like I work more with this policy and also no longer accrue PTO when it's unused.

Training is lacking, especially if you are in a specialized industry. The firm won't pay for any external CPE and the internal CPE is not very good. They pressure you to go to their internal CPE conferences which are somewhat sales based.

Compensation is lower than market and bonuses are mostly based on things out of your control. Also there's no motivation to take on new clients or grow the business. The new norm seems to be when people quit or retire, they just hire new staff/interns and expect others to pick up the slack.
Pros
Flexible schedule, unlimited PTO, alternative work arrangements
Cons
Increase workload with departures, low salary, don't pay for external CPE

Generally a good company, but mixed messages as to work needs
Manager, Risk Management - Financial Institutions (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, CASeptember 7, 2018
Not enough time allotted to engagements to the proper job, and the audit programs were too general as to the work to be done. Had to spend more time fixing audit work others than they spent on site for the audit. No repercussions to the individual involved. Depressing..

RSM - Really Sketchy Management
Sr. Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 27, 2018
On a typical day valuable energy is wasted on deciphering conflicting messages from management, pleading for support from most departments, and encouraging and retaining defiant staff with a strong sense of entitlement, while managing multiple clients and multiple partners reaping the benefits.
Pros
all the soda you can drink
Cons
Not enough pay for the magnitude of work and aggravation.

Local management is horrible
Auditor (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIAugust 22, 2018
Culture was good for a few years and then significant changes occurred and the office went downhill fast! Management did not have a clue on how to handle employee relations. Unfortunately the good people left and its unlikely this office will survive. People and clients and fleeing for good reason.

Public Accounting

RSM is just like all other public accounting firms. I've worked in Big 4 and there isn't a huge difference. Long hours, challenging work, good compensation.

The promotion is not based on merit
Accountant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 16, 2018
This firm did not value the hard work. The promotion is based on your relationship with the supervisor, not based on merit. I worked at this firm for more than 6 years, never had any bonus, no promotion.

Underpaid for Service
Senior Assurance Associate (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 15, 2018
I enjoy working at RSM, however it takes roughly 6 years before you see much of a pay increase. During busy season you work ~70 hours per week with the summers slowing down significantly, however the pay doesn't meet the expectations.
Pros
Management, Team Oriented
Cons
Work-Life Balance

Great People - Great Company
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 11, 2018
My time at RSM has been excellent - great pay and benefits, excellent coworkers, and challenging work. The company made up for the time spent traveling by offering plenty of time off and opportunities to work remotely. With that being said, the job did come with some challenges- a lack of lateral mobility and new opportunities. Overall, it has been an excellent experience.
Pros
Challenging work, great co-workers, excellent pay and benefits
Cons
Lack of lateral mobility and new opportunities

Great First Job
Associate - Risk Advisory Services (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 8, 2018
My first job was at RSM and I was exposed to a wide variety of clients. I learned a lot about different clients and the complex environments that they have. Therefore, I became more well-verse in the market and would be able to provide expert guidance.

Partner, Healthcare Advisory Services (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILAugust 7, 2018
Consulting can be a very rewarding career choice if you are willing to put in the time, especially to contribute to profitable growth within your practice area or in other parts of the organization.
Retrospectively, I should never have left.

RSM McGladrey
Senior Loan Review Analyst (Former Employee) –  Pasadena, CAJuly 31, 2018
I worked as an independent contractor for RSM McGladrey prior to their absorption into McGladrey. In this role I was able to travel to client locations across the county for audits and due diligence projects. The compensation was superior. Some of the salaried lead people were the best supervisors that I ever had.
Pros
Travel, interesting work, situations and people
Cons
Anywhere you went you were in a conference room with a laptop all day

Learning and Talent Systems Lead (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 30, 2018
One of the best jobs I have ever had/will ever have. Great culture. Company involved in multiple community initiatives. Pay is competitive. Management pushes you to be better than you thought you could be. Systems are in place for each employee to own their future/career. Highly recommend.

Run, do not walk, as far away from this company as you can
Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 26, 2018
Turnover rate is about 63%, just to give you an indication of how well they treat their employees. Leadership does not care about people, at all. They will chew you up, and spit you out. The entire HR department is led by people who will destroy you if you voice concerns over policies or procedures. It's like a mean girls club, except with middle-aged women. It's awful!
Pros
Flexible working environment
Cons
Awful leadership across the entire organization

Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  RSMJuly 13, 2018
Great company to work for (Outside of the Big 4). You get out of it what you put in. High performers are rewarded with promotions and good challenging work. If you do not make yourself known, you will not get far.
