    Here’s Your Open Thread for RSM (fka McGladrey) Compensation Discussions (2016)

    By | July 7, 2016

    Early July is usually when compensation discussions start for the denizens of RSM, fka McGladrey, fka McGladrey & Pullen, fka RSM McGladrey (a division of H&R Block). Lo and behold, very early this morning, a tipster sent us a message:

    RSM comp thread? Partners begin communicating July 6th through 20th.

    Normally, we might wait awhile for the anticipation to reach a fever pitch, but we're feeling charitable (plus, there's nothing else going on). 

    To help you along, here's what the comp thread sticklers usually call for:

    • Position, promotion (if applicable)
    • City (region is not informative) & line of service
    • % Raise 
    • % Bonus (if any)
    • Old & new base

    Enjoy. May all your wildest and unrealistic expectations come true.

        Must not be raises this year as the annual name rebranding done chewed up the budget again

        • Another exKPMGer

          You have to seriously wonder about the credibility of your firm when leadership thinks constantly rebranding is the best way to promote your firm to potential clients.

      RSM stands for “Really Sucks Man” when it comes to compensation.

        If mgmt. caught wind of that they might go back to the drawing board and get a new name for ’17.

        What region?

        looks like you were underpaid as a senior and they are catching up.

        • AuditingBro

          $69k 2 years after my start date is underpaid? Starting salaries at B4 were only approximately $50k when I started which nearly matched my starting salary.

          • McValue Meal Audit

            Sure, i guess it’s market.

          • BackinAction

            Did you transfer in? How do you get supervisor after two years?

            • AuditingBro

              It was after 3 years. I was a Senior after 2 years. He said I was underpaid as a Senior which I don’t believe was the case at all.

      This thread is going places.

        I hear all of the male associates received naked pictures of Natalie Gulbis in lieu of a bonus…

        • Another exKPMGer

          This kind of comment is why Hillary will win the White House, thanks. Prick.

    • McValue Meal Audit

      I heard in lieu of monetary raises they will be getting swag bags full of old McGladrey branded marketing materials. Come on kids, you no longer have to wait until new Partner training to get that quarter zip golf pullover with the firms (old) crest on it.
