  • Employees Are Treated Great! Tax Manager

    2021-12-14 20:32:15.29

    The employees are treated great at MC. The pay is very competitive. The culture is great, and employees are valued and treated with respect. The company understands that employees are the most valuable asset. Lots of great benefits including 401(k) match, multiple health insurance options, free snacks and drinks, and reward programs. The company has also been very flexible about working from home when childcare is an issue. A real work life balance is possible while still doing interesting tax work. It’s been great working here!

    The only con is that the maternity/ paternity leave policy is not as competitive as other firms. However, they are in the process of updating it so hopefully it won’t be an issue much longer.
