    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.

    I have been working at CohnReznick full-time

    Pros

    Mid-sized firm, so it's not overwhelming. They feed you well during busy season. They have Lunch & Learns quite often and some groups (not all) have flexible schedules; including working some days from home.

    Cons

    Technology! They have a lot of catching up to do in comparison to Big 4 Accounting Firms.

    Their overall processes aren't structured/smooth. You MUST go with the flow and make the best of what you have.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility is the best thing you have going for you. Allow all staff flexible schedules, work from home, better travel/metro/parking benefits, and implement a hoteling system.

    I worked at CohnReznick full-time

    Pros

    Somewhat of a new company so it is expanding.

    Cons

    No type of real training so it's primarily on the job. Management believes that your lack of understanding what they want you to do and how it should be done falls on you and not on their lack of training and leadership. Different managers will give you multiple task to complete at the same time with no communication between themselves, no direction and no guidance on how to complete them. Also, once you start working on certain clients and industries it is difficult to expand to different ones. Affordable housing is the bread and butter of this company so if that does not interest you, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff and stop throwing them under the bus for your management and leadership failures.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, friendly environment, understanding supervisors, decent benefits, decent pay, and parking garage attached to the building in Hartford

    Cons

    The work can become very stressful. Teaching new employees can become a burden. This burden is not considered when calculating the realization rate.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the employees about their timing struggles. Chances are if we work with a manager a lot we don't want to disappoint them. The staff will try to take on the workload themselves.
    You are a large company now. Please start treating your employees with that benefits which come with working at a large company.

    I worked at CohnReznick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly nothing really good to say at all. I hated my time working for CohnReznick.

    Cons

    Terrible Management, Cheap, Liars, Zero Loyalty, Inconsistent, worst IT environment I've ever experienced, etc.

    Advice to Management

    We were promised a lot when we merged with CohnReznick and nothing came of it. Took our parking benefit away after they promised it wouldn't be, were treated and looked at differently. They only do business with one thing in mind and that's spending as little money as possible. Fire long time employees for no rhyme or reason. The IT structure and make up is one of the worst I've ever seen or worked with. STAY AWAY.

    Pros

    Great Vacation Policy, Good Office Hours and flexibility once you display your work ethic and dedication client service.

    Cons

    Busy Season Hours are a bit intense due to under staffing at the time. I would have stayed if I didn't want different industry experience outside of real estate.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back bonuses, especially for managers.
