    Re-work your approach to training, encourage more work/life balance, more frequent feedback and guidance about performance (good or bad)

    Former Employee - Tax Staff Accountant  in  Oklahoma City, OK
    Former Employee - Tax Staff Accountant in Oklahoma City, OK

    I worked at BKD full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good experience, knowledgeable partners (until mandatory retirement), lots of training during the first year. Not a terrible place to begin your career in public accounting as long as you're OK with the second-tier job opportunities that follow. Some offices seems great, some are terrible.

    Cons

    Average pay and small raises. With a relatively high number of partners for a firm of their size, you notice the day-to-day cost cutting everywhere. Offices can feel like a "good ol' boy's" club where it's acceptable for managers to discuss female staffs' "talents" during lunch, etc. Expansion through acquisition creates a firm without a coherent culture. They shuffle people around enough that this will probably work itself out.
