    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, and paid over time

    Cons

    Opportunity to learn, depending upon whom you work for

    Extremely unappreciated employees and a huge turnaround

    Very toxic work environment & culture where back-stabbing is encouraged & allowed. Alot of the seniors I worked with gave a ton of work and then went back their desk, sat back and chat with other seniors about the last episode of Lost. The staff I & II are very overworked and the few seniors that take pride in their job and take the time to explain to staff how to do things in an audit are usually the ones fired at end of busy season.

    The SENIORS WHO ARE LAZY and stuff their staff with everything THEY should be doing so, can take 2 hours of breaks (excluding lunch) are the ones kept around. They are the ones who usually BACKSTAB those under them by blaming others for hours billed to a client when it's them who didn't work for the hours theycharged the client. And of course it's these types of seniors and managers that get to head up roundtable meetings cause they are such "real leaders" when it's them who talks behind people's backs but they give a big smile when they see the same person face to face.

    Management can keep denying how miserable most of the company’s employees are and they keep promoting alot of the backstabbing seniors who head up the roundtables but when most of us decide to leave the company you will be stuck with those seniors who will be partners and you wll looking back and think "huh this is why all these people quit?" Just look at who the company kept and promoted to high levels for the answer.

    Favoritism rules the day. If the managers/partners don't like you, don't expect to advance, even if you're talented. Don’t expect to win a rebattle with seniors who are liked by a partner.

    There is NO CONFIDENTIALITY EVEN WITH HR! The minute you go into a meeting with HR or a partner the entire office will know your discussion in about 2 hours!! Absolutely horrible!! HR should get fined for not keeping conversations private!

    Happy hours is not for everyon..., unless you know the right people, you're not getting invited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on really making the changes you say you're going to make, (ie make the company to run like Zappos) by making PARTNERS AND MANAGERS show the SAME RESPECT they want given, instead of YELLING AND CHEWING OUT STAFF.

    Need to improve HR department and employee evaluation since good/hard-working people get thrown under the bus and lazy people who are friendly with the right partners are left alone and get promoted even though they are idiots.

    Giving power to a handful of seniors can get out of hand since they hold alot of power and can take adntage of it. Please don't have 4 or 5 seniors determining who should stay or who should go and they are the eyes and ears of management. You don't get it that those 4-5 can conspire and get anyone fired who speaks up about their misstreatment by them! It makes other feel like it's Big Brother environment and you are being watched all the time. Stop that so that working at Rothstein Kass can feel warm and welcoming place to be.
