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

    Pros

    Company has commitment to its employees and its clients. Under the new CEO, the company has dramatically shifted its culture positively. There is a lot of opportunity to learn and develop skills in a variety of industries. Co-workers are great.

    Cons

    Busy season has long hours as client deliverables need to be met after fiscal year end. This is the nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on breakthrough services for clients, and growth for the firm. Great job.

    Pros

    I have been working at CohnReznick LLP for about 5 years in their audit department and very much enjoy working there. The firm had always treated me well and given me significant responsibilities and provided advancement opportunities.
    I recently became a mother and I didn't know what to expect since it's corporate firm life. The firm was exceptionally supportive beyond my expectations during my pregnancy and first year of motherhood providing flexible work schedule and making sure I wasn't feeling overwhelmed. My supervisors regularly communicated with me to make sure I could handle my work load and balance it with my family life. I was happily surprised to see such genuine and understanding management in a corporate firm with all the horror stories you hear out there.
    Working in corporate America, it's not often you receive such support and inspiration from your employer and I very much recommend CohnReznick LLP to other people who want a firm that can provide work-life balance and treats its employees well.

    Cons

    None that I can think of as of now.

    Pros

    Great people and an overall culture that desires to see employee's grow and thrive. Pretty good work/life balance for a public accounting firm. 4 weeks of PTO.

    Cons

    Mostly related to the industry rather than the company: focus on billable hours, occasionally long hours, need to put in a lot of extra time to stand out and succeed.

    Good PTO policy - that's about it.

    Pros

    Very few people are honest while dealing with other team members

    Cons

    They will tel you the people are the best here they will help out every step of the way but you better watch out your back because when it comes time for help they will all throw you under the bus, you don't control your future/ career. you are only told what to do

    Advice to Management

    Make certified people as mentors and don't make immediate seniors on the engagement as a mentor for staff

    Pros

    Good company functions, organized and structured, casual attire, training programs are very well developed

    Cons

    Health Insurance Benefits not the best, long hours required around deadlines, high stress environment, high turnover of tax and audit staff (which is normal for public accounting), salary offer will be low-balled

    Advice to Management

    It would be very beneficial to encourage good communication, be understanding, and learn how people at lower levels perform to avoid setting unrealistic expectations.

    I worked at CohnReznick full-time

    Pros

    Some very nice people amongst the whole

    Cons

    Inept senior leadership; lack of quality partner level talent with a few exceptions; whole place is a scam to allow a select few to make a lot of money at the expense of their partners and capital investment; most commonly heard phrase when business is sought from anything more than a local small business is: "why would they hire us?"; firm does NOT aspire to be bigger, and anyone with Big Four on their resume is very quickly told: "we're not the big four!". This place is where tired accountants go to laze away, and where ambitions go to die.

    Advice to Management

    You're not worth what you pay yourselves. How do you look yourself in the mirror? Admit you're over your head and go outside for real qualified leadership.
