Eide Bailly – Why Work For Us?

undefinedA strategic plan provides direction and a consistent roadmap for all team members. It is the difference between an exemplary and mediocre performance.

We believe in the power of a strategic plan, and each year, we review our plan to make sure it reflects the current business environment, economy—and our dreams. Eide Bailly’s strategic plan supports our mission to serve passionately and intelligently; add value to our stakeholders; and grow our Firm. I am pleased to report we had another successful year.

There is excitement at Eide Bailly—there is tremendous momentum! We'll build on this.


Serve Passionately and Intelligently

In today’s competitive marketplace, quality is not optional, but required. Clients expect quality services and products from their service providers. They appreciate and value exceptional service.

Eide Bailly utilizes a one-firm approach to client service; therefore, clients receive personal attention from their industry and service team members regardless of geographic location. At the same time, they have access to 1,600 talented professionals across our Firm. As we grow, our goal is to strengthen existing industries and services, and look for new ways to help our clients.


Staying competitive in the marketplace benefits all stakeholders. To do this, however, a business must have the right players and the right mindset.

Being one of the top 25 CPA firms in the nation allows us to compete with key players in the marketplace and be successful. It allows us to attract top talent, offer excellent training, work with quality clients, provide valuable infrastructure, and deepen our knowledge and broaden our services. Our goal is to continue a high level of growth; these key advantages allow us to play well in the marketplace and attract smaller CPA firms who are considering a move upstream.


People are the Difference

You know you work in a remarkable place when you are trusted and supported, you can be innovative and creative, your efforts are recognized and you can have fun at work. For these reasons, 1,600 peoplechoose to work at Eide Bailly.

We are honored and proud to be ranked fourth in the nation by Vault for our culture. Our people bring our culture alive in all their actions. They have helped us create that special work environment where people say, “I get to go to work!”

    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time (More than 3 years)


    The experience you get at EB is amazing! With it being a regional firm, you get a lot of variety with the clients you work on, and the clients are large enough that you still get the experience of seeing how larger companies operate. I am completely satisfied with what I have learned and feel that I would succeed in any financial role I take on after this. The people are amazing as well. The Boise office partner group are fun people that truly care about your success at the firm. As you gain more experience and move through the ranks, the hours become somewhat more flexible, which is something that I love. Employees get 4 weeks of PTO, which is unheard of at most companies. The Boise office is on the 8th floor of the Wells Fargo building downtown and the firm pays for your parking.


    As with any public accounting firm, the long hours become unbearable after time. The longer you're there, the more responsibility you pick up, and you have to continually work those hours to be able to keep up with all the tasks for the audits you're responsible for. The manager/partner group in the Boise office for the most part is great about jumping in to help, and the experience is awesome, but after a few years it's just hard to keep doing it.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing the best they can in an industry where the turnover is high and there is always work to be done. I don't know that there's much they could do differently and I feel like it's overall a great firm to work for.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Eide Bailly (Denver, CO).


    Round Robin style interview with many different members interviewing you in shorter sessions. The interviews were focused on their company and then led to interviewee questions about what they talked about.
