Here’s Your Open Thread for Crowe Horwath Compensation Discussions (2014)

It's August. It's hot. The collective stench of human bodies and rotting trash hangs around like that unwelcome friend who won't stop talking about his latest dating failure. There's little you can do but hold your nose and wait for it to pass.

Lucky for us, we can still have the public accounting firm summer compensation threads to keep life bearable. Next up: Crowe Horwath. 

We've mashed Crowe in with a bunch of second and third-tier firms for years past, but they are a top 10 firm, so maybe they deserve their very own kvetch session? Hey, why not, it's Monday.

We received this tip last month:

Not really sure you'd want to do a comp thread on Crowe, but their bonuses get paid out July 31, and new raises/promotions are effective August 1. Promotions have been communicated, but comp discussions haven't happened quite yet. If you did open one, I'd wait until after the first of August.

Based on this tip that came a week later, it sounds like we would like to post a thread for CH:

Heads up – the much anticipated, hotly debated, Crowe Horwarth compensation discussions are occurring this week.
So, maybe it's a little tardy, but better late than never. The firm pulls in over $600 million a year so it stands to reason that some of you non-partner Crowes would see some of that…OR NOT? Either way, get it off your chest here.
 
And don't forget to add your info to our compensation survey. We're doing it for you, people.
