I worked at CohnReznick full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Just a notch below the Big Four with relatively good work-life balance (compared to the Big Four).
- Collegiate atmosphere; partners have open door policy.
- 20 days PTO to start.

Cons

- Before the merger and when it was called Reznick, the client base was mostly real estate partnerships. The work became tedious and boring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to build a more diverse client base.

    I worked at CohnReznick full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours, great people to work with, well known and more prestigious.
    As with every public accounting firm, the fight is always the long hours vs the good pay. However, here, at least you're not working until 12am like as in the big four. And honestly you're learning and doing the same thing, just on smaller companies.

    Cons

    Busy season, long hours, limited culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on keeping good employees instead of trying to attract new ones

    I worked at CohnReznick as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Put the interns right to work with meaningful tasks; Compensation is slightly less than the Big 4 but on par; Full week of training in the beginning. Once in a while management would throw us a happy hour or provide us lunch even during heart of busy season to "refresh" us.

    Cons

    Even during my limited time, I can see there is too much focus on billable hours. Employees dedicating numerous hours that went unbilled. Not a very good feedback system for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little less focus on billable hours and more time on viewing your employees as assets.
