I worked at BKD full-time

Pros

The staff people are loyal to a fault. BKD doesn't deserve them.

Cons

Tax Group Partners are nitpicking and control freaks. Staff and Seniors are forced to deal with partners instead of managers because they are too cheap to hire managers and they managers they do hire don't stay.
Extremely high turnover.
The cheapest/tight fisted firm I've ever worked for. They don't bring in meals during tax season.
They will work you to death and throw you away.
Training is joke! One Great Week is One Big Joke. It's all "look how great we are" and hardly any technical training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advise to partners is go do something else. You're no go at this.
