    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Crowe Horwath is a wonderful national firm. National communication is excellent. The training is pretty good. Decent work life balance for public accounting.

    Cons

    This is for the NY tax department only
    -High turnover
    -Tax partners are verbally abusive
    -Tax partners play favorites
    -Men move up much faster than women
    -NO fun
    -Partners and most managers are mean, rude, condescending, and generally unfriendly
    -Not treated with respect
    -Work load not properly managed so everything is a fire drill

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Partners need serious training in how to manage a practice and how to treat other with respect

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, made some life-long friends
    Great clients
    Good culture of team work developed by certain managers

    Cons

    Coming from Big 4 to Crowe, I found that Crowe was very unstructured. For instance, there was no set internal audit standards followed, therefore, each manager handled an internal audit their own way. From the processes and procedures to the actual report write-up, no two internal audits had a cohesive approach. Also, there was no clear path of advancement. You set goals and was judged at year-end, but there was no clear developmental plan. Finally, communication from some managers was non-existent and you didn't know whether you did a good or bad job until you got your review, which gave you zero time to remedy a negative situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better training across offices and departments within offices. Create a clear path for advancement. Teach managers how to manage PEOPLE, not just projects. This involves clear communication.

    I worked at Crowe Horwath as an intern

    Pros

    I was an intern, I learned a ton from a group of very helpful full time employees. I also got a lot of experience with technologies that I had no prior knowledge of. The office environment was very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    I don't think the team I was working with was ready for an intern, so it took a few weeks to get the ball rolling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that groups know they are getting an intern, and continue to compete with other firms on salary

    Pros

    Quickly move up, many learning & growth opportunities, provide some travel benefits, allow you to develop and explore a market niche, allow relocation.

    Work-life balance pressures based on lack-there-of from managers and senior management, mandatory trainings are typically a year behind where many people are currently performing at, wages and bonuses aren't stellar but comparable to other accounting firms.

    Pros

    They are a global firm who continues to grow.
    People seem friendly
    Those who wish to stay in one location can do so.

    Cons

    Limited performance feedback.
    Hard to get noticed unless working directly with a partner.
    Limited growth potential internally.
    Training seems very generic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback to the staff and interns as they work. Don't wait until the end of an internship or until the staff has worked there for 2 years.
