Associate (Current Employee)
Fargo, ND

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

Pros-Decent pay and individual benefits
-Relaxed work environment with reasonable expectations

Cons-Expensive family health plans
-Not too many "dynamic" clients
-Status quo is king
-Recruiting and promotion can be popularity contests

Advice to Senior ManagementPossibly focus a little more on margins rather than focusing solely on revenue growth

Great people with a focus on their employees

Senior Audit Associate (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

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

ProsThey 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.

ConsNo bonuses in our office. Feedback on job performance is not great.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Eide Bailly a wonderful place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fargo, ND

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

ProsThis 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.

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementTeam building needs to be a priority

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company looking to grow.

Associate (Current Employee)

I have been working at Eide Bailly

ProsSome 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.

ConsLots 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
