Assistant Director (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – July 17, 2018
I've worked at Crowe for more than 10 years in a variety of roles - 7 of which have been working full-time remotely. I've been fortunate to have supportive managers who have challenged me with taking on new projects and serving as great mentors along the process.
Smart, dedicated colleauges and many benefits to support difference work/life needs
Last minute projects/obstacles can result in long hours
Seemed like a good Company but wasn't there long enough to determine
Senior Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 16, 2018
This position was challenging but overall the people seemed nice and hard working. Position was not what was communicated to me and decided to look for a better fit at this stage of my career. I would advise prospects to be sure of the position requirements they are applying for to ensure a win/win situation for both parties.
QA Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 8, 2018
Internal training programs were non-existent. If you couldn't find something free on the internet there was no internal training available. Relying on others for help was difficult since they were typically busy with their own work duties.
The firm attempts to run with the Big 4. It's certainly not the Big 4, but you are treated as if you belong to one. You will work Big 4 hours, have a Big 4 zero quality of life, and NOT get paid a Big 4 salary.
Entry level experience, adequate training, new technology
Poor salary/work life mix, once training is over you are basically on your own, poor office leadership and communication
The culture at Crowe definitely makes it stand out from other larger firms. The environment is collaborative and engaging, welcoming and progressive. I worked directly with partners on some projects and I never once felt intimidated. There could be more formal coaching and mentoring of associates.
Manager (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – April 23, 2018
This company makes a strong effort to make its long hours bearable for its employees. As a public accounting firm, it is a great example of a company striving to keep and motivate it's employees. The tone at the top differs from office-to-office though depending on who is in charge and what their individual preferences and expectations are as well as if or how stridently they enforce firm-wide policies within their local office.
Excellent learning and networking opportunities with reasonable pay and good benefits.
It was a fun place to work because of the culture.
Risk Consultant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 16, 2018
We usually worked in teams of 2 to 5 on average. A typical day would usually be at a client location mainly collecting documentation to perform internal audit. The work place culture was relaxed but competitive. The most enjoyable part of the job was that we were allowed to work from home as long as projects are being completed on timely manner.
Work from home, friendly management, rules are relaxed on vacations days.
CAST - Staff (Current Employee) – South Bend, IN – April 9, 2018
the firm is VERY supportive of personal goals, lifestyle, and work life balance. I just wish the pay scale was more equal. If you travel or are in tax, you make good money, but if you find yourself in the CAST department, expect to get paid peanuts compared to everyone else.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Indiana – March 5, 2018
Crowe Horwath is a great place to work. Lots of benefits and in some departments the work life balance is perfect. In other areas there are questionable way of managing so that is a negative but most people really enjoy what they do and they have a positive attitude that makes you want to come into work.
Work/life Balance, Flexible, Lots of resources for employees, Fitness incentives
Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 9, 2018
In many respects the work experience here is typical of any midsized accounting firm. The hours are long and the pay very low for the work expectations. As such, most employees view working there as a short-term learning experience before moving on elsewhere.
