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

    Pros

    -Diverse learning experience in the tax department
    -Small company allows you to get to know everyone
    -Corporate sponsored tax technical trainings, CPA membership, dinners and car service during busy season

    Cons

    -Lack of specialization even as you advance
    -Too much focus on billable hours / efficiency rather than quality of work
    -Lack of mentorship and care from senior managers and above
    -Very long spring busy season - enough to burn out the average employee, but if don't have a family or life outside of work, doable

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on mentoring the staff and not just complain when things don't go your way.

    I worked at Crowe Horwath full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There was a friendly staff and collaboration across groups/teams. Gained exposure to a wide range of industries. Had contact with Managers and Partners.

    Cons

    Audit engagements required long distance travel, often out of state. Many small engagements so was difficult to have a focus area. Clients consist of mostly non-public companies. Long busy season hours with 6 day mandatory in office.

    Advice to Management

    Try and place audit staff on clients they have interest in and meet staff's needs as far as willingness to travel out of town.

    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.
