Hello! Looking for a change and was looking at Cohnreznick. Can anyone give guidance what they know about the firm. The good and bad. Comp, culture, work life, insurance, do seniors get signing bonuses , referral bonuses for clients and new hires. How’s the software tech. Want to know before I leave what I know. My bdo merger has been horrendous so looking for change. I’m Considered a high performer

I was there for 3.5 years. It really depends on office for culture and WLB. Comp is based on CoL but generally firms below big4+RSM tend to be more stingy. When I was there, I was getting 7% raises in non-promotion years and got 11% when I went from staff to senior. One of the downsides is that there are no annual bonuses. There are unofficial discretionary bonuses, which isn’t well known, but I used to get $500 twice a year from the managing partner in my office. Sign on bonuses are common on the accounting world but I can’t say for sure because I started my career there. There are definitely bonuses for client referrals though. Insurance is good and on the HDHP they will contribute $1,000 towards your HSA in your first year if your on the plan and $2000 every year after that. They use CCH engagement for audit. Not sure about tax software, but I can find out if that’s what service line you’re in. Let me know if you have any other specific questions.


EY is not correct about bonuses. Bonuses are paid to high performers. There is good work life balance. The firm shuts down the week of Fourth of July and Thanksgiving. The culture of the firm is excellent taking into account dietary restrictions when providing meals and making sure anyone who is observant is able to take the appropriate holidays. I would be happy to answer any specific questions you have.


I’ll also add that last I heard paternity leave is 2 months

CR1, I can’t not be correct based on my experience. There are no official bonuses. They are discretionary and not well known about. Unless something changed in the last 2.5 years. Also, you can’t say, absolutely, that WLB is good. Again, it depends on the office. My office (not NY or NJ), WLB was not great. YMMV.

Again, WLB is office specific. You are not correct about how bonuses work- other firms pay bonuses regardless of performance, but the amount would depend on your performance. At CR, bonuses are only paid to high performers, and only some.
