    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexibility, compensation, and great benefits.

    Cons

    This firm does a very poor job of developing people. Other departments and offices do not work well together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Out with the old and in with the new.

    Great sales and marketing to get you through the door but falls short of expectations.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and peer culture helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    Growth is primarily through acquiring small firms and sole practitioner firms. That says everything about the type of work and clients you will "grow and develop" your career on. Lack of coaching, training and development, 360 feedback program is anonymous and "country club" mentality . Pay scale could increase a little and benefits are not the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to create a learning culture, where teamwork and collaboration are encouraged and diversity is respected and valued. Need to promote flexibility through action and not just talk.

    I worked at Eide Bailly

    Pros

    The people here are nice and the office is in a pleasant location. Other departments were probably better than the Employee Benefits area as far as management.

    Cons

    The Employee Benefits department is poorly run with very little concern for their clients. I constantly went home from work ashamed of the company I worked for because of they way they treated clients both on the phone and the jokes made about the clients behind their backs. The department cares only about business volume and nothing for quality. If I worked for a company that was using Eide Bailly to administer their employee benefits (especially COBRA or Flexible Spending Accounts) I would not participate in either of those plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just assume that because you have some extremely large clients like the state of Minnesota and Hennepin county that it is ok to treat the clients poorly. Management needs to encourage the employees to care as much about providing quality of service as they do quantity of service calls processed. Also, it would help if management hired call center people that are a little more intelligent than a box of rocks.
