    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance much better than the big 4

    People, including partners, were very down to earth and enjoyable to work with

    Nice benefits - healthcare plan is quite good

    Partners generally care about their employees' well being

    Cons

    Compensation is not consistent with market value at the senior level or above

    Shockingly low engagement fees lead to unrealistic budgets

    Very unhelpful if you show interest in diversifying your experience - partners will tell you they want to help you and then you will never make progress towards your goals

    Incredibly cheap - trivial and legitimate expenses are often questioned both by administrative people in south bend and managers

    If you are a top performer, you will get worked to death while your lesser performing peers are on easy street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your seniors what they are worth! There is a reason the best ones leave.

    Pros

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

    This is for the NY tax department only
    -High turnover

    -Tax partners play favorites
    -Men move up much faster than women
    -NO fun
    -Partners and most managers are mean, rude, condescending, and generally unfriendly
