Former Employee - Senior Auditor in Roseland, NJ
Former Employee - Senior Auditor in Roseland, NJ

I worked at Rothstein Kass

Pros

benefits, pay, time-off, location only if you survive the annual layoffs that occur at Rothstein Kass

Cons

no job security, performance appraisals very politicized and whimsical, upper management are very willing to throw people under the bus, no constructive feedback given to employees until it's too late,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

management and the company as whole needs to get some integrity in how to treat employees, way too much back-stabbing & office politics here compared to other audit firms (I also worked at a Big Four firm after RK; Big Four was MUCH better in terms of work environment)

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass

    Pros

    1 - Great place to learn the financial services/hedge fund industry.
    2 - Great people to work with. RK is a very friendly and casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    1 - It can be difficult to get progressive career experience. Senior managers/partners don't involve staff/seniors in any unique projects.
    2 - Very long hours (although staff/seniors are paid straight OT).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something to show appreciation of the work your employees provide. I mean anything....a pizza day, a company happy hour.....anything. Just something. There is an entire firm of jaded and unmotivated individuals who are not going to have the desire to meet client expectations. People aren't going to believe that "next time" they will be appreciated for all their hard work, late nights, saturday and sunday workdays, and giving everything they have to the firm. These people won't be going above and beyond to please the client and their superiors because there is no self-interest in doing so anymore.
