    I have been working at CohnReznick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of PTOs (4 weeks at first year associate), Spacious cubes (big NO to hoteling), flexible schedule and supportive management. The WomenCan program, the sponsorship program, the mentoring and buddy system... the company wants you to succeed and is there every step of the way to help you achieve your goal!

    Cons

    Pay is about industrial average, client needs to be more diversified.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Busy season is tough but not unbearable. Good PTO package. Interesting client mix. Coworkers are great. Very smart people working here, you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    No 401k matching, bonuses underwhelming, good performance gets rewarded with heavier workload (doubt this is unique to CohnReznick)

    Pros

    Honestly not sure why there are so many bad review. Like ANY other accounting firm, you will work long hours.. that is a given. After accepting that you will have busy season hours, it is honestly not that bad. This might just be in the Baltimore office/the department I am in, but most people are in the office, and there are some travel. I've been at two other firms and this firm has allowed me to stay in the office than most other firms which to me is a HUGE plus. Traveling makes it exhausting during busy season so majority of the traveling is done during the interim work which really helps you out. Also- when you do travel, you get to travel to pretty awesome places so it turns out to be a win win. The culture is very laid back, wear jeans everyday, and young peers. They do many trainings so it really helps you out. I honestly have enjoyed my time here so far.. can't really complain. Lots of awesome people here that will help you out when you need a little guidance. This office is also smack dab in the best location in downtown Baltimore.

    Cons

    -Hard to move up
    -hours can be long
    -groups can feel segregated at times
    -all depending on what group you are in, there can be great exposure or not enough exposure
