    I worked at CohnReznick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunities depending on the office you work and if you started out of college or not. Excellent factory mentality and if your head is in that space you can be a manager in 5 years.

    Cons

    Lots of office politics in some regions where other offices seem to function normally. Diversity of industries of work is largely regional. Work can get moved from one office to another based on client relationships. Generally run very understaffed intentionally. Extremely cliquish all the way from staff through partner.

    Pros

    Good pay and vacation time, good benefits, and overall cant complain about this area.

    Said I wasn't engaged with the project, though I thought I was, then put me on an Enterprise Risk Management project, which I didn't have any experience in doing.

    more training would be good to prepare people for the roles you expect them to fill

    Pros

    Corporate culture in general is good. The firm cares about its employees' professional development, it also offers fair benefits including 20-day PTO, health insurance, free food for busy season, but no 401K match. Most Colleagues are professional, friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    Some unqualified people are promoted to manager positions. Managers are very LAZY by doing nothing except forwarding emails, ordering food and eating, telling subordinates what to do but not how to do it, and chatting/kissing up their bosses. Middle-level managers are gossip, and "eyes" and "ears" are set everywhere. On-the-job trainings are provided by less experienced employees without a professional or universal training materials, so it is confusing and inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    1. Why the company pays managers big bucks for them to set a negative example for the rest? Partners: please walk out your office and open your eyes to take a close look at what your managers are doing everyday! 2. Why only managers can have their "voice" heard not the base-line employees? Conduct a "supervisor evaluation" by their subordinates annually and listen what they say about their managers.

    I have been working at CohnReznick full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My work/life balance is excellent, if you are willing there is a ton of learning, Senior staff to Partners are usually all very willing to teach patiently, the CEOs and top management is awesome, they are extremely visible and approachable

    Cons

    Super slow periods for some staff members, not enough overall exposure to other industry, came to a less large firm so I would not be pigeon holed, they haven't realized they are a large company yet,

    Advice to Management

    You made the merge now treat your employees as if they are working at a top 10 accounting firm. No more cutting corners on training cost, here's looking at you NYC.
