    I worked at Rothstein Kass full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They paid for dinner if you stayed late and car service if you were in the office late as well.

    Cons

    Deceitful in their employment practices. I was hired full-time permanently only to find out that the company was being bought out by KPMG and that the last few people hired would be the first to be laid-off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people permanently when you know that the company's future is unstable.

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Being 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 Management

    Wish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.

    I worked at Rothstein Kass full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits; good professional support/ongoing credits; variety of clients

    Cons

    office culture - if you fit in with a clique, great, if not, tough luck! Seniors could care less about staff.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let staff get stuck with just one senior in the beginning - make sure they work equally with everyone

    Pros

    Great advancement and learning opportunities, competitive salary, good benefits and loved my coworkers. Training reimbursement and support from mgmt made it easy to pursue professional certifications.

    Cons

    Flavor of the week initiatives and greed at the top sunk this firm. Culture was good until the disastrous introduction of the core values. Forced training was aggravating and only loosely applied to job responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rothstein 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.

    Cons

    As 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 Management

    Management 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.

    Pros

    Culture, environment, nature of work

    Cons

    Scheduling needed an overhaul. HR was too busy with promotions and didn't deal with obvious issues.

    Advice to Management

    include all staff in your engagements. Don't have pets.
