    Pros

    I have worked at Crowe for more than 8 years and have had many growth opportunities and am well paid. I enjoy the culture and have access to top leadership via communication channels.

    Cons

    The challenge is that it is a growing organization that was founded in South Bend Indiana. Crowe wants to be a large company, but struggles with the thinking from when all personnel worked in the same office. It is a double edged sword. Crowe is not trying to be the big 4, yet wants to play and grow to a bigger middle market. Much like having growing pains, it is finding challenge with the processes and consistency across the organization when many offices want to run like small businesses. To be a large player one has to have a consistent business model.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice is to really examine where leadership wants to go. Crowe will get there as there are really talented people. But, much like other industries, it will be challenges to keep the new hirers engaged and not have a revolving door. Crowe as an organization really needs to learn how to bridge gaps with the new, younger staff, with those that have been at Crowe for some time. Crowe needs to find a way to stop their talent from walking out the door.

    Pros

    Company has good values, great training and interesting clients.

    Cons

    Partnership level in the NY office in need of major management training.

    Advice to Management

    Send Partners in NY back to college to take a Business Management class. Clique's in a 2,500 person firm don't work. Everyone can see them playing favorites and it is embarrassing. Good talent will and is fleeing, time to look in the mirror. Crowe is not the big 4, not everyone is easily replaceable.

    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 Management

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