    Poor culture

    Jul 3, 2022 - Audit Senior Associate 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of learning abilities and industry experience- in OK this is especially government, healthcare and banking.

    Cons

    Poor culture in Oklahoma. It is a sad situation in OK. Many long term auditors have left in the last 6 months, including a senior manager, director and managing director. They have primarily left due to a poor culture that only rewards partners. Partners in OK do not align to firm values and are misogynistic. They routinely admit lower pay but indicate it’s worth it for the opportunity to be a partner in the future and stability. When individuals leave they don’t tell them if the good of the firm but rather use the tactic of fear in trying to insinuate they will be laid off in other jobs.

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    BKD offers an environment that you can excel at given the team members you work with. This is a mid size firm so the pressure the Big 4 offers is nonexistent and you can actually enjoy life outside of work. It can get busy and you get more responsibility as the years progress but stick it out and you will thoroughly enjoy it.

    Cons

    Usual Accounting firm cons - Busy Season
