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

Pros

Easily accessible partners
New work/challenges with every client
Good/hard work = recognition with Sr. Leadership
Quarterly travel bonus

Cons

Go-live always trumps holiday
College-hire training is non-existent
Client demand drives timeline regardless of feasibility or availability
Sales team is not connected to delivery, resulting is over-promising

Advice to Management

Don't let clients burn through YOUR people. Find meaningful work for new hires to do establish a true mentoring program to bring newbies up to speed. Don't make overworked individuals take time to tell you they are overworked.

    Pros

    A company that is not satisfied to rest on a successful history provides opportunities for those who are willing and able to contribute.

    Cons

    Respect among competing groups can be lacking. A recent trend makes it appear that the intelligent and capable people only live in the Chigagoland area.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the value and abilities in employees outside of the metropolitan Chicago area.


  2. "Good opportunities to grow individually but concerned with the overall leadership."

    Pros

    I enjoy the challenges of the job and the changing atmosphere. I think there are many opportunities within the firm and that employees are offered an opportunity to succeed. The career allows individuals that want to succeed the opportunity to succeed.

    Cons

    Don't believe that management is always straight forward and communicates effectively with the professionals. Fed a company line. Goals set for growth seem to be a bit far fetched and senior management seems to be too quick to change positions. Also, I don't think that the ownership group is on the same page and the direction the firm is trying to take does not line up with everyone's objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Need to develop a plan that all members agree with and not just what some of the executive team believes. By not having a plan that all believe in, it is going to be hard for the firm to move forward.
