It’s great! I love working at CR. Your client base will depend on industry/practice area/office. The people are great and it’s a very flexible and reasonable work environment. Major focus on people development. I work steady hours throughout the year and primarily only have high hours in March- April 15 and a small spike in late august/early September. Hours are pretty much based on client needs and how well your team is organized which engagement teams have some control over. Could focus more on technical training by level at a National scale for more basic/not industry specific tax issues (con compared to big 4).

I’m curious - what office?

Everyone’s experience is different but mine has been overall positive. Similar to all other PA firms in terms of hours/pay/culture. But there is an incredible amount of growth if you want it. As a first year tax senior my level of exposure and responsibility is way beyond my peers that I share my career experiences with (this could also be because of staffing issues).
