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

    Pros

    Crowe offers great benefits in terms of PTO, health care, and 401k options. The firm also offers decent training options and seminars.

    Cons

    I found the federal tax division to have issues with office politics and communication. The firm has made efforts to change the culture, but there was a pattern of disrespect, favoritism, and frankly, verbal abuse. Additionally, personnel in management were often not equipped to be managers in terms of communication and training skills. Even though there were great benefits, I found Crowe's NY tax office to be a very unhappy place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Until the culture shifts, and management takes accountability, there will continue to be a high turnover rate. Nobody wants to work in a toxic environment.

    Pros

    Company has good values, great training and interesting clients.

    Cons

    Partnership level in the NY office in need of major management training.

    Advice to Management

    Send Partners in NY back to college to take a Business Management class. Clique's in a 2,500 person firm don't work. Everyone can see them playing favorites and it is embarrassing. Good talent will and is fleeing, time to look in the mirror. Crowe is not the big 4, not everyone is easily replaceable.
