    I have been working at McGladrey LLP as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I just started at McGladrey and I love it here. The work environment is great. Focusing on the middle market really differentiates the culture of McGladrey from their competitors. Looking forward to working here for the rest of the summer.

    Cons

    I honestly have not found any cons. The only thing I might say is that the New York office is quite crammed. Hopefully they will be able to change offices or expand within the current building.

    Advice to Management

    I have not been working at McGladrey long enough to give advice to management. Still in the stages of them giving advice to me. I will write another review at the end of the summer.

    I have been working at McGladrey LLP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

    sometimes 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

    Pros

    Opportunity 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep 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!).
