    It was good while it lasted.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt had great benefits and a great workplace environment. It also had a good work/life balance. And it paid overtime.

    ConsBeing bought out by KPMG. Bye bye mid-size perks. Also, inter-office work teams and interactions were not nearly as efficient as working with team members located in one's local office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company to work for if you aren't a slacker

    Auditor (Current Employee)
    Roseland, NJ

    ProsRothstein Kass has a great culture and intelligent individuals working for the firm. Only people who have anything negative to say are those who got let go because they were below average.

    ConsAs with any accounting firm, the hours are no fun. It's doable, you just have to want it. If you don't, private is the way to go

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has improved over time. I think they try and lsiten to the lower-level staff, but they never adhere to comments or suggestions as much as they want.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
