    I worked at J.H. Cohn full-time

    Pros

    Loved the people, everyone was friendly and everyone seemed to be interested in growing the firm and making it successful for the whole team

    Cons

    the challenges were more about public accounting and less about the firm. Maybe the biggest challenge was the firm trying to build a brand. As a top 15 firm, its a challenge in the market when competing against the big 4

    Pros

    Excellent staff that worked as a real team. Encouraged us to further our education and great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Turnover in our department seemed high, but was not the fault of management. Probably because many of their hires were recent graduates that were not looking for a long term career at the time.

    I have been working at J.H. Cohn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The location and the offices are really nice especially for those who live around that area. Induction time and training for beginners is superb.

    Cons

    The consulting group is really badly managed.The consulting group partners are damaging the firm's reputation overall. Salary is ok but not the best compared to other firms in the same industry

    Advice to Management

    Management should look more into the consulting group and take immediate actions.

    Pros

    Most of the folks are nice. You aren't going to love everyone any where you go so "most" is a glowing review. Resources are good. It's a great place to gain experience.

    Cons

    Long hours. Not as bad as Big Four, but not as nice as when they were smaller.

    Pros

    Partners have an open door policy There is a CPE or other form of training for just about anything If you are vocal and driven the sky is the limit

    Cons

    Pay is not very competitive Expensive benefits Favoritism / very cliquish / gossipy Human resources are not good at either scheduling or hiring

    Advice to Management

    If you don't hire better people (especially human resources) and don't increase the pay or offer some other form of reward, you will lose the talent!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good training if your manager is willing to invest in you. Good and fun staff to work with Good IT support

    Cons

    A lot of politic and kissing up involved. Some very aggressive bus drivers who relentlessly throw people under buses. Very hard to move up if partners cannot relate to you.

    Advice to Management

    We want to see Management care more about staff feedback. Partners should diversify their workforce more and treat people equally.

    Pros

    It is a good public accounting firm to work for.

    Cons

    There is not enough opportunity for growth. There are partners who have come through acquisitions that don't do anything to grow the firm but make a ton of money.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and stop promising the world and under delivering everytime.
