    Pros

    Although McGladrey is largest middle-market public accounting firm, the promotion process is much less structured than firms on this size. For example, instead of only getting promoted to senior associate after 2 years, if you express your desire for a promotion and work with your career advisor to accomplish specific goals, you could potentially get the promotion much quicker. Also, McGladrey doesn't limit the amount of each level of employee which they employ, which means you don't have to wait for position to open up in order to be promoted.

    Cons

    McGladrey has been growing tremendously in the past few years, which is fantastic as far as job security is concerned; however, the tremendous growth also means the company is understaffed in its highest growth areas. This severe understaffing in certain groups doesn't seem to be getting better any time soon due to turnover and what seems like no desire to address this issue by partners. This makes busy seasons even worse than those experienced by the Big Four - even though this is a middle-market-focused company - so those seeking a smaller-fiirm feel should no longer come to this firm.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to listen to avoid becoming a "Big Four-esque" company. McGladrey markets itself to potential employees as a middle market public accounting firm, but is quickly moving toward the feel of a Big Four company with respect to the number of busy season hours-per-week, lack of work-life balance, and level of disgruntlement for lower-level staff.
