    "On the way out..."

    Current Employee - Senior Staff in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
    Current Employee - Senior Staff in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    1. Some people are great to work with if you find that one person who will develop you otherwise you'll just feel lost....staff actually quit because of this.
    2. Great learning experience, but you will be overworked.
    3. You will great promoted in 2 years no matter how bad you are....unless you're absolutely terrible then you're just screwed. You will be "on probation" through their improvement plan and then "coached" out.

    Cons

    1. The hiring of staff is pathetic and staff nowadays have a low work ethic. They just want to do their 40 and go home, definitely not public accounting material.
    2. Work/life balance is slim to nonexistent depending which group you are in.
    3. Partners talk behind your back and do not even follow HR policies. Certain individuals are very unethical and will tell you to eat hours. Doing so will decrease your chargeability and your shot at a bonus, but they will still get theirs.
    4. Training is inadequate. When a staff goes to the field with just a pen, I think that' a bit problematic.
    5. Travel is absurd and unless you're liked by upper management, they will make you travel non stop.
    6. The pay is absurd. They have an employee placement group within the firm. The salary guide that they create indicates that Crowe is underpaying their employees and do not even meet the pay expectations of a mid size company. In addition, the pay between a staff and a senior is so close that it would be less stressful to be a staff.
    7. See latter part of Pros # 1, 2, and 3.

    Advice to Management

    Certain partners are going to burn Crowe to the ground by making all of their employees quit. One particular partner has her name mentioned during exit interviews and nothing has been done yet. If you do not want the employees who get the job done to quit and go elsewhere, you might want to do something about that.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good management, partners interact with staff to sr managers

    Cons

    not as selective about hiring, new hires are not agressive and do not seem interested in going the extra mile

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring, avoid work life balance promotion since partners do not support this as a number 1 priority - focus on hiring competitive and hard working people in stead who want to make a difference and work hard at their career
