    good place to start career before the merge

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgreat benefit, great learning experience

    Conslots of uncertainty inside the firm. Bad evaluation process. performance was based on how well your personal relationship with manager. Not based on work efficiency. Mentor program is just fake and not being used well.

    Advice to Senior Managementtalk to different employee, listen to everyone, offer your help. not just listen to those you considered as your friends in your personal life.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It was good while it lasted.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

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

    ConsBeing 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 Senior ManagementWish you wouldn't have sold the firm. We were doing so well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very cliquish staff

    Staff Auditor (Former Employee) Roseland, NJ (US)

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    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.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

    Auditor (Current Employee) Roseland, NJ (US)

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
