Featured Review

I worked at Jack Henry & Associates

Pros

Work/life balance Opportunity to contribute Benefits Company values its workforce Friendly work environment

Cons

Pay is slightly less than elsewhere Moving up takes time Not always easy to move into other areas of the organization

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at BKD full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

To name a few, the wide variety of clients and the ability to take on responsibilities early on, consistent access/mentorship by the leadership team, a clearly-defined but customizable career path... and great training/ support. Even though it's public accounting, I don't feel like I have to choose between my family and my job - I can flex my time and the leadership team trusts me to prioritize. I've seen a lot of positive changes in my 10 years at BKD from when I started, most of which have come from employee engagements surveys/ ideas from internal employees. No mandatory rotations means I can keep my family in one place, but we're big enough (and continuing to grow) that I could move if I wanted to. The ability to choose my specialization rather than be told where the firm needs me has been and always will be a selling point for me. For accountants, we're creative and strategic in how we innovate and I'm glad to be a part of it. BKD also really helped me to develop as a professional supporting my efforts in the community/ on local boards, etc. Non-discretionary Profit Share is 5% annually - better than a 401k match to me.

Cons

Standard cons with a pubic accounting firm - longer hours ahead of peak deadlines and an every-changing knowledge base in the industry can be stressful to keep on top of. While compensation... adjustments seem to be in line with market standards overall, I'd like to see a performance-based bonus for certain milestones.

Advice to Management

Do a good job at this already, but continue to be transparent about changes - internal or external.
