    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.

    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 Management

    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

    Working with smart and energetic people. Firm's many initiatives for Work Life Balance. Very generous vacation policy as compared to industry.

    I worked at Rothstein Kass full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity and a place to create value for customers as well as an excellent group of talented leaders around the country

    Cons

    Not a great deal to add here and quite difficult to fill the twenty word minimum. Perhaps more of a realisation that technology is the way forward.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the current path. Make time to actively find those who wish the firm harm from inside the gates and redirect their energy to more positive activities.
