    Pros

    Work/life balance, benefits, people and culture- Crowe has been instrumental in making my life flow more smoothly as a solo mom working full-time.

    Busy season can be rough for certain groups- Crowe does it's best to mitigate the work load for individuals and build a team environment.

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

    Pros

    Mobility of work setting (i.e. remote, office) as well as flexibility within it. PTO is fairly generous, as well as benefits.

    Cons

    Travel can become a bit tiresome, but it’s expected of the job. Sometimes issues arise with guidance on projects. You may feel completely lost and looking and asking for guidance, so a lot of it boils down to tinkering with objectives for a bit and then reaching out if you keep spinning your wheels.

    Pros

    The people are fabulous -- During the onboarding time, you are exposed to people who can help you in your position no matter where in the country they live. People are willing to stop what they are doing to help you and answer your questions. The company is very tech savvy -- equipment and software is always up-to-date. Great benefits. I wish I had started here 20 years ago!

    Cons

    None with Crowe -- my only complaint is the commute, especially in the afternoon, is long, but that's a Miami issue.

    Advice to Management

    This is one of the things I like the best! Typically, if you are in an admin role, your only chance for advancement (once you get to a senior level) is to change your career and advance as an accountant, banker, broker, whatever. But here, you are a part of Global Services, which is almost like a company in itself. You can advance within the administrative area to management levels and still be able to stay in the field you chose.
