    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.

    I worked at CohnReznick (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Basic Tax Experience,
    Extra benefits during tax seasons, lunches, massages, dinners.

    Cons

    Training was not as in depth, a bit sloppy, felt rushed. Not enough diversity. Lack of feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Better training.

    Pros

    -Young office environment can make it fun to work with peers and make friends.
    -Recent office renovation has made room for a bigger kitchen and outdoor eating space.

    Cons

    -HR and management seek out employee feedback but don't seem to take any into consideration when making decisions, big or small.
    -Work/life balance is bad. Even outside of the busier seasons, work never slows down.

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Very intelligent and diverse group of people across all levels of the firm. Somewhat decent pay. Pay in public accounting needs to increase across all levels.

    Cons

    Given the medium size of the firm it has been difficult to get exposure to larger, public clients. No year-end bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on developing your staff and seniors rather than getting them to complete the work as fast as possible.

    Pros

    Good practice. Small for now but growing in triple digits every year. Now is the right time to get in: salary is a little higher than the market and expect promotions quick.

    Cons

    So far nothing right now

    Cons

    No bonuses for seniors and staff

    Advice to Management

    We audit a ton of 401ks which makes it that much sadder that we see everyone else's match but we don't get one
