    I worked at BKD full-time

    Pros

    Lots of hard work, demanding clients

    Cons

    Poor training, partners very hard to work with. Particularly those who "grew up" at BKD.

    Advice to Management

    Need 360 degree feedback and need to coach partners who are abusive to staff.

    I have been working at BKD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong Core Values at company headquarters. Great leadership training opportunities. Good opportunities for outside CPE training.

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the local office level. Lots of infighting. Poor teamwork. Terrible retention rate. No presence in the marketplace. Firm is virtually unheard of in Texas. Weakest link in the firm is at the Partner level. Run very much like a small, local firm. No vision. Very little talent, zero ambition.

    Advice to Management

    Consider infusion into the firm from outside the Texas area. Insist that core values of the firm be respected. Insist on teamwork between professionals.

    I have been working at BKD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people I work with are nice and easy to get along with. Also, easy access to excellent technology, resources, training and CPE opportunities.

    Cons

    Salary is low for the amount of work you do, no 401k match, and no bonus program. Also there is a clique- if you're in it your golden, if not you have to work twice as hard to get the same recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Implement some type of bonus program. The base pay is fair for the area, but raises are small and there is no bonus potential. The economy is up, revenues are improving-- let some of those financial rewards flow to the people putting in the extra hours.
