I have been working at H&R Block part-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

H&R Block does a great job with tax education because you pay only $20 fee for as many tax classes as you want to take so sky is the limit for education on taxes. If you were on your own it would probably cost $5000 or more for this kind of tax education. another awesome thing is the software they use is best in the industry it would cost you thousands of dollars to get this kind of software. yes senior tax preparers do get more accounts even entry level preparers complain about this happening but they have built these accounts over the years and have ownership of these accounts as long as you are at H&R Block.

Cons

They need to encourage more people to become enrolled agents and need to have better incentive for preparers to build their business. The pay scale could be better especially in the commission area. back in the day H&R Block had a much more lucrative commission.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

have better incentives to become enrolled agents and to build your business. increase commission levels not so much for entry level people but for senior people.

    I have been working at H&R Block as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Make your own schedule; Good earning potential; Mandatory tax update and compliance; Good client and tax professional representation and support or back-up; Can relocate to practically anywhere and resume employment.

    Cons

    Lots and LOTS of favoritism. Too high and sometimes unrealistic expectations from management; Performance has to be 120% better than the previous year, every year, to avoid a rate of pay decrease; Available office hours are limited and depend upon location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management in our district is doing well. Keep up the good work!
