I got a job offer from an accounting firm but I have a problem... - Page 2

GT and BDO are a step above McGladrey prestige wise. GT and BDO at least have F500 audit clients. McGladrey, Moss Adams, etc don't. Also, GT and BDO have a much better international network then all the rest of the 2nd tier firms.

I see your point but feel it's honestly marginally better even so. In certain markets GT / BDO may have a really strong presence, but overall they're still far behind Big 4 and tend to get clumped together with everyone else. It's not so much there isn't an actual difference, it's more people tend to just think Big 4 and then everyone else. Hell even KPMG gets jocked on by PwC and DT...although KPMG did quite well this year.

By the way in no way am I saying you can't be successful if you're not at Big 4. Jus saying at the surface level, that's the perception of the public accounting industry.

Some other advice. McGladrey should be lowest on your list. goingconcern.com has some useful advice. Just take the comments with a grain of salt.

Definitely agree about pushing the extension out. You don't want to have to ask for a 2nd extension because you didn't give yourself enough time to hear back from the other firms.
