    Pros

    Rothstein Kass has a great culture and intelligent individuals working for the firm. Only people who have anything negative to say are those who got let go because they were below average.

    Cons

    As with any accounting firm, the hours are no fun. It's doable, you just have to want it. If you don't, private is the way to go

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has improved over time. I think they try and lsiten to the lower-level staff, but they never adhere to comments or suggestions as much as they want.

    Pros

    RK is a great place to start a career. It is a midsize firm that offers lateral and upward mobility. The firms structure is not as rigid as other firms, there are great benefits, flexible hours and fair compensation.

    Cons

    The firm has grown tremendously over the past years and the growth pains are felt throughout the firm resulting in voluntary and involuntary turnover of employees.

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    great benefit, great learning experience

    Cons

    lots of uncertainty inside the firm. Bad evaluation process. performance was based on how well your personal relationship with manager. Not based on work efficiency. Mentor program is just fake and not being used well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk to different employee, listen to everyone, offer your help. not just listen to those you considered as your friends in your personal life.

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It had great benefits and a great workplace environment. It also had a good work/life balance. And it paid overtime.

    Cons

    Being bought out by KPMG. Bye bye mid-size perks. Also, inter-office work teams and interactions were not nearly as efficient as working with team members located in one's local office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.
