McGladrey’s Latest PCAOB Inspection Reveals McGladrey Is Not Grant Thornton

Well, the PCAOB is slowly but surely cranking out more 2012 inspection reports and today, McGladrey gets to celebrate an accomplishment: being better at auditing than Grant Thornton (though I suppose given GT's embarrassing audit failure rate, that isn't saying much). Not only that, they're slightly better than EY and only slightly worse than PwC. DANG y'all, look at McG go!

  • Grant Thornton 65%
  • BDO 55%
  • Crowe Horwath 50%
  • EY 48%
  • McGladrey 43.75%
  • PwC 39%
  • KPMG 34%
  • Deloitte 25%
