    Pros

    Some (Very few) people made my personal experience bearable.

    If a Partner respects you you know it in the way they talk to you and deal with you. They give you the independence to do what they are paying you to do

    Some management are friendly and fair

    The PTO is great when you can take it

    Cons

    The merge.

    Partners.

    Management

    And MOST of all HR is a joke. If you have an issue with manage you might as well not pursue it with HR as they are strictly for management.

    This place pays little for all the hats they expect you to wear along with the expectation to kiss the rear end of management

    Never felt valued or appreciated for my good work and effort.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more personable people.
    Partners need lessons/classes on how to treat EVERYONE with respect
    Management along with partners need to learn communication skills and give warnings, let someone know what's being done wrong before further action has to be taken.

    Get some real HR personnel firm wide.

    Pros

    Seniors are willing to help.

    Cons

    Company culture is completely screwed up. From partners to managers, they know that public accounting has a lot of turnover so they don't really care about treating employees well and making any sort of effort to keep them at the company. Partners are rude robots who only care about numbers; absolutely no personal interaction with staff. Pay and raises are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Understandably during busy season there is no work-life balance but pay your associates accordingly during the annual raises for spending that extra time. Your currently compensation sucks.

    Pros

    People are friendly and helpful for the most part. Pay is OK, on the lower side for a large firm. Good opportunity if you don't want a life. A lot of training, but still requires you to make up the client work in addition to the training time.

    Cons

    No work life balance, long hours, working in a confining work room during busy season in the affordable housing practice is so boring! It's a big firm that still acts like a small firm, definite growing pains and power struggle for legacy firms. No performance feedback except for annual review. Meetings out the ying yang! Enough already!

    Pros

    Young and casual office during the busy season.

    Cons

    Difficult to maintain a good work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    More beer carts when goals are met would be nice.

  7. Good people, growing office with some growing pains

    I worked at CohnReznick

    Pros

    A lot of independence, great online training tools, great administrative staff, certain partners staff extremely brilliant, organized and provide great service to clients. Great opportunity to learn from top specialists in field on cost segregation, credit research, etc.

    Cons

    A bit disorganized but due to office being one of the 'younger' offices, opening within last 5-7 years. Currently mainly affordable housing and NFP (some may love this and not see as a con) but currently limited in other areas which will 'eventually' migrate to Boston due to merger with JH Cohn.

    Advice to Management

    Just needs more communication and organization which will come with time and growth.

    Low wages; disconnected with senior management

    Pros

    Salary is good, work is simple during tax season, nice office, great exposure to low-income housing and tax credit industries, decent all-around exposure to all parts of the audit process.

    Cons

    Management is very inclusive (staff-level associates are involved in no meetings ever, are not involved in planning at all, etc.). Promotions definitely don't always come as deserved. Not much of a "we're all in this together" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Value lower-levels of the audit team more, and they will be more likely to succeed and stick around within the company!

    Pros

    The training is very good at associate level.

    Cons

    The feedback about your performance is at the last minute. There is no strategy to help employee improvement and even not a plan/approach to do that.

    Advice to Management

    Set your strategies to better your employees either by interacting them or by getting and giving the feedback at the right time for mutual benefit of employer and employee.

  11. Great place to work!

    Cons

    Not as many Fortune 100 firms to audit
