Best Place to Launch a Career? McGladrey receives honor

There are numerous annual "best of" lists or company rankings published each year, and it is easy for many non-Fortune 500 firms to get lost among the who's who of top companies. Generally, if a company has a well-known brand and strong name recognition, they zoom to the top of the list. This past week, Business Week magazine published their "Best Places to Launch A Career" list, and for the first time, McGladrey was included in the annual ranking, coming in at #104. It would be easy to discount that ranking based on the number alone, but it is a great accomplishment for McGladrey, as it shows we are becoming a recognized name in the public eye. The Business Week list uses three components to determine the final ranking:
  • Firm provided information as requested by Business Week

  • A poll of Career Services directors of U.S colleges

  • A survey of 40,000 U.S. colleges students (conducted by Universum USA).

McGladrey is honored to receive this recognition based upon these criteria, and for the nearly 1100 college (entry-level and intern) students who have made the decision to launch their career at McGladrey, we thank you for placing your trust in us. Public accounting may not always sound glamorous to non-accountants, but with many firms making the Business Week list, there is something to be said for the challenging and interesting opportunities that await. McGladrey could just be one of the best kept secrets within the profession.
