    Pros

    * Flexibility to work offsite - home, Starbucks, cabin in the woods (as the firm works to reduce costs by minimizing leased office space);
    * Acceptance of flex / reduced work schedules, although career potential is affected;
    * Benefits - a typical corporate package is available, although cost to the employee is fairly high;
    * Overall, the firm wants to be a good place to work but just needs work to rise above average;
    * Individual Partners were generally very approachable and nice people.

    Cons

    * Silos! Everywhere you look - I've never encountered a less helpful group of colleagues. It's as if one person's success would threaten everyone else, instead of also bolstering others' successes;
    * Initiative & creativity were not rewarded except by piling on more work. Doing huge volumes of work was also not rewarded, or even acknowledged.
    * Unless you're a star in a very profitable business line, raises and bonuses are mediocre, at best; negotiate the best salary you can going in because that starting point determines what follows.
    * 401(k) plan is poor - extremely unfavorable provisions regarding timing of employer matching funds and very narrow investment choices.

    Advice to Management

    The firm knows it has to grow. Everything at Crowe - marketing, operations, client service, firm culture - is caught up in an internal battle between the provincialism of long time partners & staff who aren't that ambitious (or bright?) vs. others who have the drive and ideas to make successful growth happen. The resulting combination of tension and inertia affects everyone and colors everything. --> Good luck with that.

  2. Helpful (1)

    Senior leadership needs to trust the expertise of their employees.
