    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work there were the teams from across locations coming to the aid of offices who needed a project to get done.

    Cons

    I wish management could've been more transparent when it came down to performance review and critical feedback.

  6. A big four accounting internship with more in-depth exposure to every part of the audit process.

    Pros

    Working at Rothstein Kass offers an internship that was similar to one at the big four public accounting firms, but with much more exposure and responsibilities on the job. The long hours and the type of work is pretty much the same regardless of which public accounting firm you work for, but what's different is the atmosphere in the office. For me, I had the pleasure to work with an office team of just 15 individuals, so the personal connections truly existed, which played a huge role in the culture. Everyone who works for the firm is extremely friendly, intelligent, approachable, and hard-working at the same time. I never felt pressured by any deadlines at any point and the entire office atmosphere feels like a team environment 100% of the time. To help cope with long hours that naturally come with busy season, Rothstein Kass had what they called the "marathon." It was a string of 26 events throughout busy season that varied from competitions to social gatherings to bring up employee morale and reduce individual stress.

    Cons

    The reason I gave Rothstein Kass 4 stars instead of 5 was because the work-life balance, at times, was not there. This kind of goes without saying with any public accounting role, but it would have been nice to get out of the office early every once in a while just to help reduce stress and get personal time. That being said, Rothstein Kass's compensation justifies the long hours and grueling work.

    Pros

    the company offers very good for work/life balance.

    Cons

    management looks at employees as a cost not an asset. there is lack of job security no matter how good you are and how hard you work. employees are demotivated.

    Advice to Management

    Employees think management only cares about company's profit going into their/principals pocket. Whether this is true or false, management must have done something not right for the firm/employees to make employees think that way.
