    Pros

    Good amount of vacation days, pretty good benefits, and paid over time. People are younger and are friendly for the most part.

    Cons

    The office environment could feel like highschool at times. There's no clear vision of your future at this firm. ok

    I worked at Rothstein Kass

    Pros

    This firm basically lets you take off anytime you want nine months out of the year with a morning's notice. You can leave early any day during busy season so long as you think of some reasonable excuse. The only real expectation is that you get your work done at some point. After the economic downturn, the firm was able to hire more intelligent staff than they had in the past. So, it should be a better place to work now.

    Cons

    For some reason, this firm hired quite a few people who did not belong in the accounting profession. As you may notice, a lot of people on this board can barely write. This was typical at the staff level and remained at the senior and management levels. The "backstabbing" people were the ones trying to tell management to get rid of some of these idiots. Everyone received close to the same raise even though there was a clear difference in performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire some of these morons and give the good workers higher pay.

    I worked at Rothstein Kass

    Pros

    The diverse, team-oriented culture that brings all of us together. Although the job itself can be tough, but the people make the office a great place to be in. Plenty of opportunities organized to bond. Great access & exposure to senior management.

    Cons

    Political climate in the office may be annoying to some, and the nature of the work itself isn't the most exciting so don't expect too much. Can be a little repetitive, but you can get really good at it. In the end you're the one who is in control so it depends a lot on you on where you want to be ahead in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize more events to know entry-level employees more, improve the technological facilities there. Enhance internship program by making it more challenging, and provide greater opportunities for career advancement.

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    great benefit, great learning experience

    Cons

    lots of uncertainty inside the firm. Bad evaluation process. performance was based on how well your personal relationship with manager. Not based on work efficiency. Mentor program is just fake and not being used well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk to different employee, listen to everyone, offer your help. not just listen to those you considered as your friends in your personal life.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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