    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Crowe full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work from home is an option. Business casual attire anytime if not meeting with a client. Great compensation.

    Cons

    I found that the IT department was a bit too siloed. Even from an internal department one did not always know what was going on or who to go to to get things done.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Crowe full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and great people

    Cons

    The Firm's motto is not necessarily how everyone is treated. We Care, We Share.... etc.. One somewhat slow month with Covid-19 and approximately 300-350 positions eliminated. Several managers and senior managers let go who had several years with the firm. Seemed the We Care part meant they care about Partner payouts and did what they could to preserve them instead of riding it out with long term employees.

    I worked at Crowe full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Great people, sounds cliche but a lot of really talented managers who connect and coach lower level seniors and staff -For the most part, really great partners who carry an open-door policy and actually get to know their employees. -A ton of PTO and work from home options -Busy season hours less than traditional big 4 -Solid internal feedback system, you always know where you stand in regard to what you did well and what could've been better on a project

    Cons

    -Probably understaffed for a firm that wants to tackle bigger projects which leads to longer than necessary hours for all involved. -Firm leadership a bit too focused on "chargeable hours" as opposed to finding ways to make projects more efficient and retain high performing individuals.
