RK was a great place to work. Operative word being "was"

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rothstein Kass

ProsGreat advancement and learning opportunities, competitive salary, good benefits and loved my coworkers. Training reimbursement and support from mgmt made it easy to pursue professional certifications.

ConsFlavor of the week initiatives and greed at the top sunk this firm. Culture was good until the disastrous introduction of the core values. Forced training was aggravating and only loosely applied to job responsibilities.

Great company to work for if you aren't a slacker

Auditor (Current Employee)
Roseland, NJ (US)

I have been working at Rothstein Kass full-time for more than 3 years

ProsRothstein Kass has a great culture and intelligent individuals working for the firm. Only people who have anything negative to say are those who got let go because they were below average.

ConsAs with any accounting firm, the hours are no fun. It's doable, you just have to want it. If you don't, private is the way to go

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has improved over time. I think they try and lsiten to the lower-level staff, but they never adhere to comments or suggestions as much as they want.

Great Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rothstein Kass full-time for more than a year

ProsRK is a great place to start a career. It is a midsize firm that offers lateral and upward mobility. The firms structure is not as rigid as other firms, there are great benefits, flexible hours and fair compensation.

ConsThe firm has grown tremendously over the past years and the growth pains are felt throughout the firm resulting in voluntary and involuntary turnover of employees.

decent experience but management needs to re-evaluate firm's future

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rothstein Kass

Prosthe company offers very good for work/life balance.

Consmanagement looks at employees as a cost not an asset. there is lack of job security no matter how good you are and how hard you work. employees are demotivated.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees think management only cares about company's profit going into their/principals pocket. Whether this is true or false, management must have done something not right for the firm/employees to make employees think that way.
