    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You would think with Crowe being one of the top 10 national CPA firms, a more corporate culture would be present as a whole & from office to office. Not the case at all! Crowe is such a laid back company while still being on their A game with innovation & rapid growth. Having the option to work remotely as well as being able to dress casually at the office 5 days a week is definitely a plus as well.

    Cons

    There is not an office in my home state

    Advice to Management

    Keep kicking butt & providing the awesome, inclusive, & fun culture Crowe is known for.

    I worked at Crowe Horwath full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture of the Nashville office seems better than other locations. I think this mainly stems from the quality people managing the Nashville office. I feel valued on a personal level, and not just as an employee.

    Cons

    I don't know for sure, but I believe pay is below average to average. However, I think the work-life balance is probably better than it would be somewhere else where the pay would be better.

    I worked at Crowe Horwath as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My internship at the Nashville office of Crowe Horwath proved to be a fantastic learning experience. I never felt like I was doing unnecessary busy work. I was able to learn and navigate multiple software packages while being exposed to every stage of an average engagement. What stood out the most was the amount of support I received from not only staff and senior staff, but also partners and managers. A+ Internship experience that I would recommend to any accounting student looking to work in Nashville!

    Cons

    There were no cnegatives for me during my brief stint at Crowe.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to understand that they have severly underpaid their good employees and the market realizes this. Why does management this that employee retention is well below average?

    Pros

    The coworkers that I work with. They are the ones who get me through the day, not the comapny it self. Crowe has done well hiring people who fit in the atmosphere. The ones that don't fit in are typically the poor performers and are gone within a busy season or two anyway. The benefits package is good. The working space could be better. The clients are mostly good, because they are small manufacturers and are low risk. If you arenot happy in your specific group, you can easily change business units. The small office atmosphere at Crowe works well. Overall it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    The downside to Crowe is that you are going to be around a bunch of competitive personalities. Recently Crowe has been getting some of the big 4 rejects, who feel their need to push their personality on the current staff. This could be a bad thing four a company that claims to be a unique alternative to the big 4.

    Advice to Management

    I would ask that Sr. Management look at the sacrifices they made as a staff member and think about how they felt when they ask staff members to make similar sacrifices.
