    Pros

    Not the worst in the country. Can fare better. Initiatives galore. Implementation lags. Good management. Less political.

    Cons

    Strives to be a Big 4. Need to carve a niche. Accept the situation and instead strive to provide the best possible work.

    Advice to Management

    Take it slow and steady. Rome was not built in a day. Understand ranking 6th took a while. Moving up will also take some time.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere to work in, most people are not pretentious. There is potential to be exposed to a high learning curve if one desires. At a midsized audit firm, junior staff quickly given more complex accounts to work on early on.

    Cons

    Compensation lags slightly behind big 4 companies. Lots of turnover because new hires quickly realize they're getting paid less but working the same amount of hours vs their equivalent at big 4. At least with big 4, there's a brand name they can add to their resume, work on more big name clients, and interact with some of the brightest in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    There's a need to invest in and develop your employees.

    I worked at McGladrey LLP as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to upper management since it's a smaller firm

    Cons

    A lot of clients are in the suburbs so if you are living in the city, you may spend a good portion of your life commuting.

    Pros

    Depending 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.

    Cons

    Depending 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 Management

    Get new management - especially in NY
