    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Crowe for more than 8 years and have had many growth opportunities and am well paid. I enjoy the culture and have access to top leadership via communication channels.

    Cons

    The challenge is that it is a growing organization that was founded in South Bend Indiana. Crowe wants to be a large company, but struggles with the thinking from when all personnel worked in the same office. It is a double edged sword. Crowe is not trying to be the big 4, yet wants to play and grow to a bigger middle market. Much like having growing pains, it is finding challenge with the processes and consistency across the organization when many offices want to run like small businesses. To be a large player one has to have a consistent business model.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice is to really examine where leadership wants to go. Crowe will get there as there are really talented people. But, much like other industries, it will be challenges to keep the new hirers engaged and not have a revolving door. Crowe as an organization really needs to learn how to bridge gaps with the new, younger staff, with those that have been at Crowe for some time. Crowe needs to find a way to stop their talent from walking out the door.

    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.
