    I worked at Crowe Horwath full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The culture of the Nashville office seems better than other locations. I think this mainly stems from the quality people managing the Nashville office. I feel valued on a personal level, and not just as an employee.

    Cons

    I don't know for sure, but I believe pay is below average to average. However, I think the work-life balance is probably better than it would be somewhere else where the pay would be better.

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, great firm, and an amazing experience are just some of the reasons why I enjoyed interning for Crowe. The people are very resourceful and knowledgeable. One of the major things that really stuck out among the other firms is that the partners really are accessible.

    The firm is also experiencing very healthy growth.

    Cons

    At this time, I don't really have any cons. Office politics are just about everywhere, and Crowe is no different. Crowe, however, seems to have minimal politics in comparison in to its counterparts.
