This is a "String of Regional Accounting Firms"

Consulting Senior Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time for more than a year

ProsThey have a good infrastructure on national training at Q center, and decent employee benefits, and good exposure to clients at even at Jr levels. If you work hard, manager's are not going to stop you. You then get experience you don't get at Big 4 firms, but obviously with less pay. Your best bet is move to HQ in Chicago, or offices in the South or West where the clients in your Line of Business is growing.

ConsIt completely depends on which Line of Business you work in. Some just don't get it, while other businesses work cohesively within.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue as is and hope to get lucky winning new business through hard sales efforts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

No job stability

Director (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at McGladrey LLP full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSome of the training was good. Some of the assignments were interesting.

ConsPlace is a revolving door. Even if you are making the company money, they will eventually send you on your way. If you are not one of the mid-west inner circle, eventually you will be gone.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind work somewhere else.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

great times at McGladrey

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time for less than a year

ProsThe people who work here are excellent, majority of them coming from a Big 4 background with very impressive skill set. People can get promoted faster than Big 4 as long as they have the motivation and drive. Team atmosphere with happy hours, volunteer days, promotion parties, holloween parties etc. They will give you all the resources to succeed (labtop, IPADS etc) but it is up to you to make it happen. Always recognized for my performance. Flexible work schedules. McGladrey will give you more exposure to different clients and industries rather then being pigeon holed into one specific area and industry like at Big 4

Conssometimes there are negative reviews about McGladrey but I'm my opinion - its from the bitter people who couldn't get a job at McGladrey or couldn't arise to a challenge

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
