    Lot of work but seemingly worth it

    BKD Intern (Current Employee)
    Springfield, MO

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

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

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