Pros

pay was decent and generous on holidays

Cons

NO TRAINING at all, everything is about having 100% charge time. Worked 5 years, number of employees in my dept drastically reduced. No one was hired to replace, dumped 6 people's jobs on 4 of us, never a thank you for extra effort. 90% of employees won't raise their head to say hello in passing. Very miserable place to work.

Advice to Management

Train people if you want them to be succesful. Smile once in awhile, I don't think your face will break.

    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 Management

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