    I have been working at BookKeeping Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I truly enjoy coming to work every day. The opportunities are endless. The people are extremely passionate about growing BookKeeping Express but in a fun atmosphere. They offer full benefits after 30 days and are very flexible with work hours.

    Cons

    Just like any other younger company, there are still some growing pains to work through. If you are looking for a repetitive job, then this is not for you.

    I have been working at BookKeeping Express full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    AWESOME WORK ENVIRONMENT!!! The laid back culture is rarely seen in a bookkeeping or accounting environment. There is no tension between management and employees - any question can be asked at any time.

    Cons

    Challenges with quick growth - typical of any growing company. They are hiring and training employees before they actually need them, which is proactive, but the employees don't always have enough work to keep them busy for 40 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we should target recruiting from community colleges vs. universities. The work we do here does not require a 4 year degree. We could probably get similar quality bookkeepers w/ Associates Degrees.

    The “One Team” atmosphere that BKE projects to its employees is in and of itself the most impressive I have seen.

    I have been working at BookKeeping Express full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Every day is an adventure! I am genuinely excited about coming to work every single day. I have been given the unique opportunity to be a part of a growing, evolving organization and I get to help shape it. We are doing things differently at BKE, and as a result, have to figure things out as we go. We are building processes, building organization structure and changing the industry in everything we do. We are definitely NEVER bored. I am lucky enough to have great leadership whose vision I can not only embrace, but motivates me and my team. I have been given the opportunity to build and lead a team of managers, bookkeepers and analysts with awesome passion and drive. And the best part… they actually pay me to do this!!!

    Cons

    There is no model for us to follow. We have to plan, execute and regroup regularly. Some things don’t work. We are a learning organization and as such, typical linear accountants don’t thrive here. We have to be flexible always, all ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The work-life balance is right where it should be, benefits rock and opportunity for growth is awesome (as I am an excellent example). My only recommendation - more "one team" team building exercises.

    Pros

    Stands out from the rest! A great company with progressive vision and leadership that is experiencing phenomenal growth - and of course the positive growing pains that go with expansion. Open, easy work environment with a "one team" mentality where peer support is highly encouraged between each and every employee, no matter their role. Supportive management and involved corporate executives who are very cognizant that employees have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    If there are any, in this reviewer's opinion they are too insignificant to mention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the development of communication from the top down. Informed and involved employees are happy employees!
