    Pros

    Eide Bailly has one of the best company cultures out there. As a new staff, they never yelled at me for any mistakes I make, and understand that I'm new to this. They shower me with tons of lessons and know I'm trying my best, and I feel comfortable to ask my managers/partners questions when I have any. Good place to be at.

    Cons

    can't think of any at the moment

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Eide Bailly (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    Pretty bad experience. Will say those I interviewed with were friendly/responsive. Recruiter who conducted phone interview was very kind and informative. Still, overall experience was a turn off.

    Process:
    I applied on Indeed. Was reached out via email to conduct phone interview. The job description was general and open to various backgrounds of experience. Phone interview went well. Was asked a lot of behavioral questions. Recruiter gave detailed overview of firm. Was invited to next round: a panel interview. Went through the entire hour. Was asked pertinent questions. Panel were lovely, intelligent people.

    The big turn off? Salary expectations were asked at the very end, and boy, was that awkward. It was obvious I was qualified (perhaps over qualified for this particular position) and that I wouldn’t be made an offer because my range was way above theirs. Knowing what I know now, I should’ve inquired about it during the phone interview but please note: I made the assumption that the compensation would be close to my expectation, as Eide Bailly knew my experience before they even reached out to do the phone screen, let alone the hour long panel. I learned my lesson...

    How awkward realizing that you wasted your time at the very end of an hour long panel because of salary expectations. What’s more awkward? The panel, also being surprised, that salary expectations were not discussed with the recruiter, prior to the hour long interview. Yikes.

    11 days later: received a generic email stating they went with another candidate “whose skills more closely match the position requirements”.

    Tip to candidates: ask about salary before agreeing to a panel interview, especially if you may be overqualified.
    Ask about salary. Ask about salary. Ask about salary. You will save everyone some time.

    Tip to Eide Bailly: get to know your candidate. Don’t put them in front of a panel without inquiring about salary expectations beforehand, especially if they might be overqualified for the particular position you contacted them about. And if you go another way, give constructive feedback & be transparent
