I worked at H&R Block full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Decent pay, well known company. Lots of locations to choose from. Good training and good benefits including insurance and stock options.

Cons

High pressure, constant turnover at the DM level. Every year brings a new master plan. What you did last year is now the dumbest thing they have ever heard of, but just wait a couple of years and it will be right back. Business is in a steady decline...changes in the industry and regulatory environment may bring the end of this company sooner rather than later.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be consistent!

    I have been working at H&R Block part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Preparing individual taxes has always been exciting to me. I enjoy helping others learn and understand their some of the financial situations.

    Cons

    Some of our office equipment is too outdated. The computers that the managers use should be equipped with a copy of Excel so that they can send their reports to the District Manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve on communication with the various offices.

    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!
