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

    Pros

    Professional environment that encourages employees to advance in the company and improve their career. Supportive environment and the workforce is generally competitive

    Cons

    Even though leadership has employee work-life balance as a priority, the overall culture is professional and competitive which might not be a great fit for someone who's too laid back and only cares about making a living

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is always looking for ways to change it to the better and have multiple measures to gauge employees' level of engagement. Keep doing that.

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people who live by the firm's values and truly care about colleagues and clients. Everyone seems to go out of their way to help one another to meet deadlines and collaborate on projects. Leaders are involved in both work projects and the fun office activities which make it truly a team atmosphere from hire to retire.

    Cons

    Even though there are flexible arrangements to promote work-life balance, there is still a workaholic atmosphere where people still feel like they can't take much time away. At not without their laptop or phone along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your people what you can do to help them feel like they are getting the breaks they need to come in to work refreshed and energized.

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

    Pros

    It pays the bills though the salary is not competitive with the Big 4. Light work load. Not very demanding. Easy to look good if "you have brains in your head and shoes on your feet". You can take your vacation almost without question. Staying past 5 is an exception. Use a couple years of audit experience to prep for the CPA and move on.

    Cons

    Study the history. Its Crowe Chizek, a small city, office centric, passive aggressive culture that began in South Bend not London. The second office was where??? As far from a meritocracy as you can get. You will serve time in grade. An aggressive personality does not fit in and you will know it. You wont learn much (think small town accounting firm) and you wont have a mentor or role model. Very little opportunity for foreign assignments. They are pack followers and not leaders. Doesn't buy you anything on a resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its time for your periodic house cleaning. Why not set an example of paying for performance and raise the bar. The staff does not aspire for the Partnership and the carrot and stick is not existent. Change the culture to something to be proud of and one where recruiters don't ask "Crowe who?". Exit IT consulting since you compete on rates and are not a market leader. Put your emphasis Audit, Tax and Assurance. Your are going to need an outsider in the lead role to shake this place up out of the 50's.

    Pros

    Opportunity to prove yourself, support services, friendly environment, telecommute when you need to as long as you don't abuse it

    Cons

    There are many senior people who are in over their head and don't know how to run high growth practices. Unrealistic expectations. They used to be very transparent but not any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your people and the clients will come.

    Former Employee - Audit Manager in Nashville, TN

    I worked at Crowe Horwath full-time (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.
