    I have been working at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Actually feels like the company cares. Small tokens of appreciation throughout he year. Cool corporate outings as well

    Cons

    Clique-y at times. Not a name brand. Because it's smaller, you are always subject to a budget

    Pros

    Reputable company with excellent employee benefits. Bright individuals in various departments and positions. Great location with metro access nearby. Outstanding client care. Fantastic ability to meet deadlines and work towards a common goal. Young workforce with great potential to become future leaders in their industry. Events are well organized and worthwhile for team building.

    Cons

    My work station was in a closed environment (no windows/sunlight) which affected some productivity. Long hours to meet deadlines which affects personal life a little too much.

    Advice to Management

    Review the employees from the merger to identify which one's are valuable and merit an increased role.

    I have been working at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of upward mobility. If you put in good work consistently, you're on your way to promotions on a shorter cycle than otherwise would in the corporate world. Full of smart young professional who are competitive and ambitious.

    Cons

    Pay not as good as in larger consulting firms, but definitely better than corporate. Faster-paced than corporate, so people coming in from slow moving corporate world may find difficult to adjust to the pace. Works harder and longer hours than corporate. Compared to bigger consulting firms, BT has to charge lower rates to be competitive, so benefits package and perks aren't as good as big consulting firms, and very vigilant and picky about expense items billed to clients. Not as many interesting projects to select from as in a big consulting firm.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive benefits package, perks to employees, and be more flexible to schedules and alternative work arrangements.
