What the hell? Based on their stated formula, how on earth did E&Y and KPMG end up in those positions?

Funny to see McGladrey at 25.

I was recently forced at pencil-point by Beta Alpha Psi to attend a McGladrey recruiting event. The woman giving our group an office tour was asked why she joined the firm. She replied that she actually joined another firm that was bought out by McGladrey. She then hated it enough to join a Big 4, which one she didn't specify, and said she hated it more, so she came back to McGladrey.

Epic recruiting.

Well, there's something to be said for giving an honest answer! :wink:

Yeah, these rankings make no sense. Within big 4, over time there really isn't too much of a difference working at one firm versus another.
