Career opportunities with McGladrey’s growing Transaction Advisory Services practice!

by: Christine Perna, McGladrey Consulting Recruiter - Eastern Markets

The Transaction Advisory Services practice is looking for Senior Associates who want to expand their skills and industry exposure and continue to build a career at McGladrey.

Our Transaction Advisory Services (TAS) practice is a national team that works with private equity groups and strategic buyers to help maximize value at every point in the transaction lifecycle. Services include: buy side & sell side due diligence, working capital assistance, business integration & optimization, divestures & carve outs, valuation and cost management.

As part of our engagements a TAS Senior Associate prepares financial analyses to help clients evaluate the finan¬cial and operational performance of the company that will be included in our due diligence report. This report is used by our clients to negotiate deal points in the purchase agreement, purchase price adjustment mechanisms and acquisi¬tion structures. This report also helps clients evaluate the financing requirements of the transaction. Our environment is team oriented and promotes continued professional development and certification through formal training, on-the-job training, mentoring and numerous other opportunities for professional and personal development.

A typical TAS consulting assignment is relatively short in duration allowing Senior Associates to gain exposure to a number of clients and industries. As part of the National TAS team, Senior Associates are afforded the opportunity to gain high visibility nationwide through direct interaction with other regions and other practice groups throughout the firm. Senior Associates also actively participate in client meetings and site visits while interacting with top-level management.

We are looking for highly qualified and motivated professionals with leadership potential, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, a good balance of strong audit skills and business acumen and a passion for working in a client centric environment.

Top five reasons to join our Transaction Advisory Services group:

1. Diverse client base. Work with private equity groups and other strategic acquirors in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, distribution, software, healthcare, business services, consumer products and food and beverage.

2. Growth. Become part of a growing team and help build a high performing, profitable group. Rapid growth means promotion based on merit not length of tenure.

3. Fast paced environment. Individual projects are generally 3-4 weeks in length with tight reporting deadlines. Take advantage of the opportunity to make a significant impact in a relatively short period of time.

4. Focus on middle market. Work on a broad range of projects each with a unique process as a result of our middle-market focus.

5. Positioned to win. Use well-developed tools and methodologies that will position you to win with clients.
