Comp Watch ’12: Crowe Horwath, BKD, et al.

Do you work for a public accounting firm? Are you employed by a non-Big 4 firm NOT named Grant Thornton, BDO, or McGladrey (thank you, Jeeeesus)? Have you received a raise and bonus that didn't meet your expectations and now you're feeling slightly envious of all the other public accountants out there whose firm gets their very own post to bitch about their compensation numbers until their hearts' content?  Well, TFB, you're not getting your own; you'll share with other firms that only come around when they want to talk about money and YOU'LL LIKE IT.

BKD:

Could you start a thread on BKD comp adjustments? They started giving everyone raises at the same time this year and we are supposed to have our meetings in the next few weeks.
And form earlier this summer, Crowe:
Can you please add a compensation watch for Crowe HORWATH?
See? That all caps "HORWATH" can barely contain itself. And presumably there are more firms – Plante Moran, Clifton Larson Allen, others –  out there that wish they had somewhere to go to unleash their fury on the Internet. Consider this your trust tree (or whatever).
