I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Like many companies, there a lot of nice folks at Crowe to work with and good opportunities to learn, gain experience and move on to another next happy job. Crowe has invested a decent percentage of capital in technology, so the firm is not in the stone age.

Cons

Salary growth is minimal in good times, training funds are pathetic. Look to self-training otherwise you'll become a relic. Large partnership based organization politics can be frustrating, as well as the salary increases for non-partner employees - which are 1-3% at best. It's a top-to-bottom pyramid, with a very niche group at the top (similar to most other companies I've worked at). If you have an offer letter from another company, they will consider increasing your salary, which forces you to interview, which then makes you have to choose whether or not to move on. Backwards method, which causes really good pros to leave, hiring more college grads, then rinse & repeat.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Doubtful that any of the partners would look here, or other officers that could make any difference, so no point in elaborating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Crowe is not Big 4, and cannot compete with Big 4 and would be wise to embrace the niche market they have as a mid sized firm.
