    Pros

    Great place to work, great culture, with good benefits (parental leave), and a very flexible mobility strategy! It is a great firm to get the good public accounting experience that Big Four offer, but enjoy a more casual atmosphere, Midwestern philosophy, where the priorities start with the people!

    Cons

    Busy season in public accounting is stressful everywhere. Things can get hectic, but nothing crazy!

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

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, traveling (if you life to travel), very collaborative environment, pay is competitive compared to other big four accounting firms for Staff roles,

    Cons

    The turnover is high just like most accounting firms so their aren't a lot of managers. Crowe mainly serves the financial services industry so expect receive little to no experience in non-financial industries (manufacturing, technology, government, etc.)

    Pros

    Only been here a year. Still evaluating, but so far I am very happy with my career choice. The partner I work for has been supportive and available.

    Cons

    I have run into a couple of Crowe-bots that are arrogant idiots, but I expected that. Nothing systemic to report at this point, but again, I have only been here around a year or so. I find that it takes a couple of years to fully get to know your environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing
