    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

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

    I have been working at BKD full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small office environment with large national firm reputation and support, opportunities for growth and advancement, stability, high morals and standards

    Cons

    Benefits and pay could be better, but they're still competitive. Very conservative partners/executives that are not open to change.

    Advice to Management

    You HAVE to be open to change and innovation. Listen to your young professionals and staff. Just because you're a Partner doesn't mean you know everything. You're behind the times and your people are your greatest resources, so listen to them.
