    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

    Pros

    Decent revenue growth means future expansion and the ability to compete with the big four.

    Cons

    Typical professional services cons - smaller bonuses, long hours, always working for someone else's equity, busy season is 365 days long in Advisory/Consulting, failure to appreciate personal life.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing what you need to do for this type of firm, so keep it up. Just remember that treating people well should flow top-down for your hierarchy and not just bottom-up.

    Pros

    It is a national firm with a small firm community feeling. Great resources and great people. Working in a large office has been great.

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

    Pros

    Generous PTO policy, flexible hours outside of busy season, casual dress, summer hours, ability to work from home, firm provides meals during busy season, nice office, compensated parking, happy hours after big deadlines.

    Cons

    Busy season hours unpredictable, departments in office do not know each other at all, diversity and social initiatives are a joke, raises are pathetic, some managers do not understand how to manage, trainings are boring/overly detailed/do not actually teach anything, little opportunity for growth if you're in a non-client service role.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to make trainings engaging so employees retain the information. Create opportunities for different departments to socialize. Change company culture to incorporate practice management into as much of firm life and activity as possible. Stop rewarding terrible managers with promotions, raises, and better work just because they say yes. Don't be afraid to give additional responsibilities to newer employees who have excelled. Invest in newer, more eager employees instead of those who are tired and unmotivated. Follow through on promises regarding workload and growth.
