Lost Focus on the Employees

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

ProsCrowe attracts great people to work there, so your colleagues are talented, energetic, and dedicated upon hire making it an exciting place to work until the effect of the kool-aid you were given in orientation wears off.

ConsThe focus is so bottom line driven in the past few years that the people are again a widget of sorts lacking anything that makes them special to management. Scheduling is like herding cattle and the first 4 people available go despite career choices, travel, or personal impact. If there wasn't so much emphasis given during recruiting and hiring at all levels about the value each person, as an individual makes, this might be status quo...but instead it winds up resembling an infommercial once you have the sub-par product in hand.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember what made Crowe the actual "Unique Alternative to the Big Four" - it included a large chunk leadership investing and caring in the people employeed, who then did the same for their clients.

The decline from being awesomely different has been sad.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
