    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn,
    Wide variety of clients to work on
    Great benefit including PTO
    Great people
    Great Place to Start your Career

    Cons

    Lacks consistent leadership
    Performance is said to be the reason for promotions, but in the end tenure always trumps
    Pay is typically below market unless you leave the firm and come back (in my office we had a Sr. Staff leave and come back less than 12 months later as a Sr. Manager)
    Coaching and career development program is a joke, nobody take it seriously and most partners are unwilling to provide feedback
    Unless you are in one of the original Midwest markets you only opportunity to make partner is to go to a new market that they are trying to develop, but from what I have seen are unwilling to provide the resources needed for these new "partners" to excel

    Advice to Management

    Review your salary data or you will continue to lose quality employees
    Make leadership more transparent and give more power back to the local office partners
    Review your criteria for promotions or people at the manager and above level will continue to look for opportunities where they can make partner faster

    I have been working at Crowe Horwath as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, good people. Nice atmosphere. Culture seems very friendly. Haven't really met anyone I didn't like at Crowe. Nice amenities in the office. Office looks very nice.

    Cons

    Sometimes you might work a bit longer than you like when deadlines approach, probably more if you're working busy season, but as an intern you get overtime pay if you exceed 40 hours. Not a huge deal, seems typical of public accounting. Occasionally you might get stuck with not much to do as a summer intern, but ask around and you'll find something. No PTO as an intern, holidays aren't paid but you get time off, but I can't really complain.

    Advice to Management

    I think management does a good job, just continue to listen to employees for suggestions or when they need help. I like that the management encourages a friendly and open atmosphere, so keep that up.
