    I worked at CohnReznick full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Smart dress policy…translation…wear jeans everyday unless at a client site. -Exposure to clients happens early and often - All stages of the audit from start to finish are visible -You will eat well during busy season -Renovated office space

    Cons

    -There is little to no training typically. Your first assignment will most likely be a sink or swim experience with little to no guidance because no one has the time to train you properly. - Your life will take a back seat to work. There is no balance here and it is mostly all for show. “We work hard” is a more valued statement than “We work smart.” -Every job is a fire drill. Each assignment you get is the absolute...

    Advice to Management

    -Make and stick to a decision. - It seems like a lot of the frustrations are between generational expectations. Take some time and get some training on your new associates and cater to their needs. This will help you to retain and find desirable employees. -Take the managerial and administrative rolls away from the senior associates. Train executive assistances to do admin like duties on the jobs. Allow your senior...

    I worked at CohnReznick full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really nice building, and if you are lucky you will get a great senior. Threw great parties, though I hear those have also stopped/are less fun than they used to be

    Cons

    Totally no long term planning, they treat you just like the big 4; less hours for sure, but the same mentality; I was here as an intern before the merger and when they merged they lost their smaller firm care/charm and are now just trying to be like every other huge firm.

    Advice to Management

    Show respect to employees, care about their needs and they should be willing to stay. Also, need better training for Senior Associates; they are not always efficient if not properly trained or taught how to lead.

    I worked at CohnReznick full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *Fringe Benefits are competitive *CPE resources are extensive *The work environment is accepting of all personalities (Atlanta office) *Good place for someone interested in the real estate industry

    Cons

    *It's like working in a factory. Housing Project auditing on their proprietary software system, Audit Pro, is monotonous and unrewarding. *I saw compliance test findings ignored *It's "check the box" auditing *Management does not value non-real estate professionals *Overall morale is very low, turnover seemed unusually high even for a CPA firm

    Advice to Management

    *Expand the non-real estate practice or cut it. *Be up front and honest with potential hires about the lack of opportunity outside of the real-estate side. *Be forthright about the industry-specific nature of the company as a whole.
