I worked at Crowe Horwath

Pros

Incredible opportunities... if you are a woman or minority.
Fantastic advancement... if you are one of the partner's favorites.
Your in-charge becomes your best friend... "Stockholm syndrome."

Cons

Core beliefs are no longer valued.
Core values are not to be believed.
New Anderson partners cut every corner to line their wallets.
Talk of mutualism and diversity is just that: Talk. No real respect.
You need to buy your own equipment to stay competitive, then IT tells you it's not supported.
You will be lied to: Bald faced.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take your excessive profits and reinvest them. In lean years, Crowe CHIZEK partners would do everything for their employees. In profitable years, Crowe HORWATH partners nickle-and-dime the employees to death. The founding partners would be ashamed of what Crowe Horwath has become. Stop fighting for the big accounts and take care of the small and medium accounts that lead to your real and steady successes.

    Current Employee - Senior Auditor in South Bend, IN

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath

    Pros

    Good benefits other than compensation
    If you are on a flexible work arrangement you can get away with murder (negative for those not on flexible arrangement)

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other
    Awful leadership
    Career advancement = who you are friends with
    You have to pick up the work of other people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't be so greedy
    don't expect moral to be good if you pay people less and expect them to work more
