    I worked at CohnReznick

    Pros

    Laid-back office culture, partners that actually exist, busy season perks, lots of PTO during off-season, yadda-yadda-yadda

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season, but that's to be expected. They're really no worse than any other large firm during busy season.

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

    Pros

    It's a fun place to work. Everyone there seems really engaged and enjoys what they do. There are a lot of opportunities to do fun activities and team building. Everyone is also very friendly and willing to help out whenever you have a question about something.

    Cons

    Consulting division didn't really know what to make of my skills and didn't really make a serious effort to incorporate me into their organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a more serious effort to evaluate what employees bring to the table and incorporate that skill or contribution to the greater good of the company.

    I worked at CohnReznick as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for professional growth. The compensation and benefits are competitive with other public accounting firms. Unique workroom environment allows for easy access to members of your team.

    Cons

    Most of the training took place at the company headquarters. There was a lack of relevant on-site training back at the home office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce more evaluations for entry-level staff throughout busy season to allow new staff to gauge their performance and focus on areas that need improvement.

    I worked at CohnReznick

    Pros

    -FUN laid-back playful group of young professionals who love to goof off
    -GREAT money and benefits
    -There are so many socials and you are treated very well at this company.
    -interaction between all levels- partners goof off with interns who goof off with managers... etc
    -No one is watching over your shoulder. You can't get away with two hour lunches, but if you want to go grab a snack from the convenience store across the street, you can do that.

    Cons

    -long hours.. 65+ a week (any CPA firm is like that, though)
    -Because everyone is so close and you spend so much time together, there can be a lot of rumors and gossip that make you feel like you are in high school
    -Not always easy to get help when you need it right away because the people helping you have their own work, and when you do get help it isn't always explained to you. This largely depends on who you are working with that week.
    -The audit process feels a bit like an assembly line, and I never felt a complete feeling of satisfaction like I knew what I was doing or why the whole time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think CohnReznick has wonderful Management, and they do a lot to make the dull work even out by creating such a fun culture and doing so much for the employees.
