    Pros

    The firm has a working mechanism to foster Learning, growth and development. Crowe also has a solid reputation to allow staff the latitude to try new approaches of doing things.

    Cons

    The pay is slightly below what other big accounting and consulting players are forking out. There is also very slow upward mobility and most staff branch out to attain career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Remuneration of consultant should be reviewed regularly and bench-marked against other consulting giants. Also ways should be sort to increase upward mobility of career of young consultants.

    Pros

    At times, very good flexibility and competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Once you start getting a bit of recognition, 50% of your senior management will just keep telling you how special you are. This crap happens at every public accounting apparently but they will try their best to make you feel special but their pretense is very obvious. At trainings and through various announcements, they will keep saying "oh we are doing so well, growing 200%" then after a few weeks, they will just randomly fire people cuz all of that was a lie and their business doesnt work since all they do is selling themselves short, calling that an "investment", then advertising as "Unique Alternative to Big 4" lol. Stay away and go to Big 4 by all means, or learn what you can and gtfo.

    Advice to Management

    Take a deep look into who is not doing jack yet still staying at the leadership level (e.g. partner). Even some of your good partners talk smack to subordinates about free-riding partners. Fire away those cheap partners rather than the poor underlings who are innocent. Some of the partners literally don't do anything, keep saying "oh we might get this client" for like 5 years and never be successful, makes you wonder if they really even tried. Meanwhile, these people will spend away their money on fancy dinners, etc. Wake up.

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Started out of college in 2013; have progressed from Staff to Senior Staff Consultant
    -Quick promotion schedule
    -Management is actively changing firm culture for the better
    -Collaborative, supportive environment
    -Very career-driven schedules; you make your own career and have all the support you'll ever need to move forward
    -Commitment to work/life balance; rarely are consultants asked to work over 60 hours a week

    Cons

    -Firm still has vestiges of accounting/tax background in culture; not as innovative or flexible as a true tech/consulting firm should be
    -Compensation is on the lower end; despite non-monetary perks, firm cannot continue to grow and thrive without adequately paying their employees

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people.
