    - Great clients, with a lot of opportunity to gain client experience

    - Very flexible with PTO, and really prides itself on the work/life balance

    Cons- Not the best tasting coffee in the office

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonestly, just keep up the great work. I am very happy with McGladrey and my decision to join the firm several years ago, as you can tell by the cons above (nothing significant). VERY HAPPY with how this company is run.

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

    great times at McGladrey

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    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

    Incredible bosses. Friendly Environment. Great client interaction.

    Consulting Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsOpportunity to be part of a growing company, especially in Consulting. I have been fortunate to have great personal and professional experiences within my group and even with my client(s). I am never scared to approach my boss for anything.

    ConsMcGladrey's name is not yet as well recognized as that of the big four accounting firms.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the benefits coming - small expenses (relative, when compared to salary increases) like giving everyone iPads are very meaningful to employees (it's the little things!).
