    Great place to work

    Audit Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros"Work life balance" are three words that get mid size recruiters bark at all time. The hours here are better than most places. I averaged about 60 billable hours/week during busy season. I don't have a complaint about my compensation and the people I work with are great

    ConsName recognition. The name isn't as well know as some of McG's competitors. I work in one of the largest offices and at times I feel like just an employee number to management.

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

    they could be so much better

    Senior Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsDepending on level, if you have proven you're good there is a certain amount of autonomy. The company has good learning tools and the technical aspects of national announcements are quite good and enable one to have a working knowledge of new pronouncements easily. From a technical standpoint they try to get things right.

    ConsDepending on the partner and your level there may be a certain amount of work done without a clear reason or end goal. There is constant pressure to stay within unrealistic budgets driven by low fees demanded by clients to stay with McGladrey. There is pressure to be a rainmaker. Once management has decided you will not go further they lose touch because you're only machinery & eqpt. to them

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet new management - especially in NY

    This is a "String of Regional Accounting Firms"

    Consulting Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    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

    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

    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

    Decent place to start a career but lacks development

    Consulting Supervisor (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are a lot of good people in this organization.

    ConsWhile management has a sense of where they would like to be there is a large amount of disorganization wich hinders progress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on people development and career paths.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
