    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!).

    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

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There is opportunity for growth within various industries.

    Cons

    The firm is becoming like a big 3; a little bit impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Although the economic climate is taking its toll in every industry, all ways to cut costs must be examined before deciding on eliminating positions.


  10. "RSM McGladrey is an up and coming firm; overall, it compensates well compared to the big four and the hours are better."

    Pros

    RSM McGladrey is a good place to jump start your career, as it provides you with good compensation as well as experience. Since RSM McGladrey is focused on the mid markets, you will get a chance to closely experience a lot of different and diverse type of clients, and will get to work on many audit engagements through out the year, rather than being stuck on one or two clients. Most of the people are very friendly and supportive, everyone is there to help you out. If you have a dynamic personality, you can quickly advance through the ranks here.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working at RSM McGladrey are that they are not as prestigious as the big 4. Although the salary is fairly competitive, the bonuses/benefits are not as great (i.e signing bonus, passing the CPA bonus, per diems, etc). The big four have a smoother way of running things and are overall more sophisticated. Working at McGladrey, you definitely can tell that you are working at a mid-size firm, which is totally fine if that is the type of environment you want to be in. The biggest downside of working at McGladrey is probably the prestige factor.
