    I worked at Rothstein Kass full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity and a place to create value for customers as well as an excellent group of talented leaders around the country

    Cons

    Not a great deal to add here and quite difficult to fill the twenty word minimum. Perhaps more of a realisation that technology is the way forward.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the current path. Make time to actively find those who wish the firm harm from inside the gates and redirect their energy to more positive activities.

    I worked at Rothstein Kass full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They paid for dinner if you stayed late and car service if you were in the office late as well.

    Cons

    Deceitful in their employment practices. I was hired full-time permanently only to find out that the company was being bought out by KPMG and that the last few people hired would be the first to be laid-off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people permanently when you know that the company's future is unstable.

    I have been working at Rothstein Kass full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It had great benefits and a great workplace environment. It also had a good work/life balance. And it paid overtime.

    Cons

    Being bought out by KPMG. Bye bye mid-size perks. Also, inter-office work teams and interactions were not nearly as efficient as working with team members located in one's local office.

    Advice to Management

    Wish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.
