    I have been working at BKD

    Pros

    They have done a great job training, and walking the walk with what they preach

    Cons

    I get paid very little for being an intern and doing the work of full time employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The obvious thing is to pay the interns more, but they do a great job otherwise.
