    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The firm is very flexible and open to work life balance discussions.
    Partners are great people to work for.
    I wide range of industries.

    Cons

    You will travel which for single people may be a good thing, but if you have a family it may be a strain.
    Pay is a bit lower then you can get in private accounting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You seem to be loosing a lot of people because of salary. But you are also loosing a lot of staff that want to start a family and feel like the job cannot fit there life style. If this is true or not I do not know but maybe a dialogue is needed and changes need to be made.

    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very laid back with decent compensation and benefits.
    Great opportunity to get exposure to many different industries and employers in the middle market throughout the Western United States.

    Cons

    Expensive family health insurance.
    Long hours during busy season.
    A little bit too comfortable with the status quo. "If it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality.
    You have to stay with the company for a long time in order to truly reap the financial reward for your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some room for growth in margins instead of just revenue through a greater focus on operational efficiency.
    I would personally prefer a compensation system that offers more immediate benefit for hard work, rather than one that requires a long-term committment in order to see financial reward. Annual raises and long term vesting of the profit sharing program doesn't allow much mobility. I'm aware of why this is designed this way, but it's time to embrace the mobile workforce of the 21st century.

    Pros

    They hire outstanding people, so your co-workers are great. Managers and partners genuinely care about you as a person and are willing to bend over to help when you need it. Family is very important to the company as a whole. It's a regional firm with a local company feel.

    Cons

    No bonuses in our office. Feedback on job performance is not great.

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

    Pros

    This is one corporation that still cares about it's employees and shows it with a lot of the little perks that most companies don't do anymore. They truly care about each and every one of us from the top down.

    Cons

    There are very tight clique's in some departments that make it almost uncomfortable for some to work in that department. There is some real morale issues because of it and that is never good for any company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team building needs to be a priority

    Good company looking to grow.

    I have been working at Eide Bailly

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for Eide Bailly is that they are a very reputable accounting firm that has offices in cities that get overlooked by other larger accounting firms. The firm does really care about their employees and encourages employees to stay with the company, whether that be through working from home, or allowing a part time schedule to fit someones needs. You can really tell that there are people in the firm that really care about your professional development.

    Cons

    Lots of hours are demanded with little to no acknowledgment of that fact. Bonuses do not even come close to compensating for the additional time you put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would tell senior management to adequately reward those who work heavy hours. I would also tell them to make sure they compensate existing employees at a level above new hires... anything less is just insulting.
