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

    Pros

    Crowe practices what they "preach", they are truly committed to their people. Crowe wants their people to grow and develop. We want to create leaders, for succession and also just for individual satisfaction. I believe Crowe truly honors and lives their core values, and they're threaded throughout everything we do.

    Cons

    We're trying to grow, quickly and we tend to make decisions sometimes without truly considering the implications.

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time

    Pros

    1.) Huge changes to benefits over the last 12 months. The "work where you want," jeans in the office, and parental leave are putting Crowe at the cutting edge of public accounting firms in their size.

    2.) Great career advancement opportunities even in small markets.

    Cons

    1.) Management had missed the mark on new audit software and other job optimizations that are actually making the work harder.

    2.) Firm does a poor job of communicating negative things that are going on in the Firm and how they impact employees.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the time to test new audit software before roll out next time.

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

    Pros

    Some of the people are great. Clients were good and had a lot of exposure to them. It's a good paycheck for starting out of school.

    Cons

    A lot of bad people. Tons of politics. pay is below average for hours that are above average. They don't listen to the people actually doing the work i.e. new computer system is garbage and if you say something bad about it you get yelled at. Mangers and partners are useless resources for anything. Seemed more focused on dress policy that actual work.

    Advice to Management

    Need more transparency, need to pay people what they are worth and stop running it like a tiny firm

    I worked at Crowe Horwath full-time

    Pros

    I've seen reviews lately that say Crowe is supportive of employee development. This couldn't be further from the truth. You are nothing more than a "resource" and will be tossed aside if need be.

    Cons

    The feedback comes late and is not constructive.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to complete with the big 4.
