No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Some pockets of good people who really work hard to help clients and each other.

Cons

Uninspiring leadership.
Barely any training.
HR does things that are very questionable.
Lip service from HR and programs-du-jour. Comply and go along in order to stay safe.
Lots of cliques. If you're not from Indianapolis, you're not part of the in crowd.
The women treat each other horribly. Lots of infighting, gossiping, and back stabbing.
The people at Crowe think that doing things 40% of the way is great. No focus on excellence, vision, the future, initiative, innovation, or even doing things near-right.
No accountability except bringing in revenue.
Supportive technology is barely there.
Partners tend to micromanage.
Partners believe the rumors and gossip without question. Make firing decisions based on this.

Advice to Management

Get your noses out of your spreadsheets and learn how to lead a business. Stop making decisions based on how much longer you're going to be there before retirement.

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good health plan. They have a Jeans Day

    Cons

    Working for a partnership is very frustrating. Focus is soley on chargable hours and that is it! My advice is work for the big four. You will have the same negative expierience but when you send out your resume you won't have to explain who you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Your product is your people and service. You can not manage your people and services with spreadsheets. Invest in your people. I know the culture has always been the same.....get the hires in...work them to the bone.....let them leave....start over. Whom ever is left will get promoted and one day be the next leader. YOur firms leadership is based on time served not quality.
