I have been working at Rothstein Kass full-time

Pros

Growing firm in accounting world.
Good opportunities to get experience in hedge fund industry, so you can find a good job after five years if you use RK to build your credentials.
Lots of fun events.

Cons

Favoritism rules the day. If the managers/partners don't like you, don't expect to advance, even if you're talented.
They preach about respecting everyone in the firm, but keep on partners who don't show any respect to their staff because the partners bring in lots of $$$.
One team motto.... when really it's more like forty five teams.
Happy hours for everyone... well almost everyone, unless you know the right people, you're not getting invited.
Pay sucks. Firm askes what you want, and then offeres less. Is that how you retain talent?

Advice to Management

Focus on REALLY making the changes you say you're going to make, by making partners and managers show the same respect they want given, instead of yelling and chewing out staff.
Also, the focus is on making practice staff happy, what about the non-practice personnel? Seems they're forgotten as well, and don't enjoy the same benefits (PTO time off), events (a lot don't get invites to happy hour events, to name one instance), opportunities to grow (really, if you're not pratice staff, what do you work towards?).

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Rothstein Kass full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    paid overtime, benefits, bright people, good learning

    Cons

    too much politics, very high-stress/cutthroat environment, unrealistic expectations, no confidentiality, do not give 2 week notice because sometimes HR will let you go immediately and you're out 2 weeks salary

    Advice to Management

    be more humane, get rid of some policies designed to create a hostile work environment, instead really need to improve HR department and employee evaluation, good/hard-working people get thrown under the bus and lazy people who are friendly with the right partners are left alone
