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

Pros

High amount of growth coupled with a lot of turnover mean that many newer staff have a clear path to the top. Nearly everyone is extremely friendly and younger, which makes this an extremely progressive Firm to be working for.

Cons

Increased level of work and not hiring nearly as many replacements results in a lot of long hours.

Plan for Firm growth is poorly laid out at best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to pay up when you say that bonuses are coming or you will continue to lose people by the crowd. Use some of the money you'd spend on training their replacements to give out generous raises instead.

    15 year veteran Crowe gets laid off. When asked if they know what I did, the answer was no.

    I worked at Crowe Horwath full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Everlasting friends have been made.

    Cons

    If you worked with CIO at previous place of employment your in or if your heterosexual Crowe IT is not the place for you unless you suck up. Once you hit age 40 your years at Crowe look for another job. Discriminate against older workers. They lay off people without knowing what they did. Crowe is being sued by FDIC for Colonial Bank failure. Also had lowest rating of any firm for PCAOB reviews. Google it to find out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a sports team does bad continuously they fire the coach or management. Look at reviews for employees with tenure, 90% bad reviews. I don't see them making it to 2015.
