Business Week names McGladrey to it's Best Places To Launch a Career List

Everyone knows that public accounting is a great place to start a career. When one joins a public accounting firm, their career growth opportunities can range from being on a Partnership-track if they stay in the industry, or they can lead to success and growth in a range of financial positions in almost any type of organization. It's no surprise when you see so many corporate leaders who started their career in public accounting.

Each year, Business Week releases it's Best Places to Launch a Career List. The magazine collects information from employers, college career service directors and from college students themselves to compile this list. Our industry typically does quite well on this list, and last year, McGladrey made the list for the very first time. This year, we are very proud to see that we have moved up almost 40 places on this list. To me, this serves as a reflection of not only the fact that we are continuing to invest in hiring new graduates , but also that we that we are a part of a great industry to launch a career.

Our profile on this list provides a great amount of detail and insight into our hiring demographics, our salary and benefit information, and our career growth initiatives. We feel that those numbers provide only part of the story however. McGladrey offers opportunities to our new Associates that are unique in our industry, including the ability to:
  • work closely with top management at our clients

  • achieve fast growth in an environment that promotes flexibility
