    Collaborative environment, good people, but unrealistic expectations at Senior Manager and Manager levels.

    Pros

    Strong firm values, collaborative environment, diverse cultural workplace, good people, strong and reasonably open communications to the firm, benefit package is balanced and reasonably priced.

    Cons

    Goals for charge hours, portfolio growth and sales are not realistic for Senior Managers if a reasonable work-life balance is to be maintained. People should not have to work 20-25% overtime to keep pace. The bonus structure is weak when compared to other firms and industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to decide if the firm is really going to be a diverse workplace and offer paths for both partner and non-partner goal oriented professionals. There is a perception in at least one service line that the only path is to be a partner and that it's 'up or out'.

    Listen to experienced hires - they bring a lot of good ideas and perspectives from other firms.

    If work-life balance is truly a priority at the firm, then charge hour goals for managers and senior managers need to be re-evaluated. Setting 17xx charge hours as a goal for a manager plus goals for sales plus portfolio growth doesn't make sense when compared to the 1800 goal for staff and seniors. A similar comment goes for senior managers. If the goal isn't realistic or attainable on all fronts, it just sets people up to fail. The sanity check is pretty simple: How many of the current partners at Crowe ever had a 17xx charge hour goal as a manager? Answer = probably none.

    Pros

    The work can be flexible when you are not in the field.

    Cons

    The job is very time consuming and sometimes there is no work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think managers have to help out the incharges more and take more initiation than bossing the employees around.
