    I worked at McGladrey LLP as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great people/ team, awesome culture
    - Enjoyed the work
    - Great pay, learned a lot
    - Closer ties to the companies you audit

    * I loved the experience and the people I met throughout this opportunity but I realized it the busy season lifestyle wasn't for me. For an accounting company, I would highly recommend this mid-tier company to anyone going to the accounting path*

    Cons

    - long hours (it's expected of busy season)

    Have been learning each and every day. It was slow at first but picks up soon after.

    Cons

    Pay could be alittle better, but this is the industry average. Salary varies by which office you go to, because they adjust for COLh

    Pros

    The firm has great values and they truly believe in them and promote them from the top down. For instance, the value of stewardship is lived up to through various volunteer opportunities and firm sponsored events. The firm does do a good job promoting work life balance and in my experience really cares about their employees. For being the fifth largest firm, the firm does a great job of giving employees meaningful client experiences from day 1, and employees will get experiences and responsibilities they would not get at Big 4. Compensation increases are fair and sometimes very high with bonuses. There are a lot of training opportunities and other great opportunities for those who want them.

    Cons

    It is public accounting, and there will sometimes be long hours. The flip side of that is that when it is not busy, you are encouraged to go on vacation and take time for yourself.
