    I worked at BKD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people with integrity that actually care about each other

    Cons

    Sink or swim approach to development, poor communication of expectations. Managers expect you to know their expectations, even if they're too busy too bother telling you.

    Advice to Management

    Need to resolve conflicting messages between national and local offices.

    I have been working at BKD full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a supportive environment dedicated to helping you excel. The catch, and rightfully so, is that you work hard every day. There are no lazy or slacker days. There's also a lot of pressure to be continuously innovative, so there's rarely a "going through the motions" moment. If you like to be challenged and surrounded by driven individuals, it's a good place.

    Cons

    There aren't redundancies in work responsibilities which can make it difficult to take PTO.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of very cool, big projects pushed throughout the firm - SKY, Great Season, Leadership Conference etc., but they need more definition to continue to have a culture impact on new employees

    We appreciate hearing your thoughts! As we continue to grow, we'll be looking for ways in which team members can continue to support each other to create a good work life balance!

    Pros

    Good benefits
    They treat employees well
    under good leadership
    Nice facility
    always bringing in food from somewhere.

    Cons

    They don't pay competitively. From what I've heard (from other employees) BKD does not pay competitively because they don't want to be help to that standard or look like they're paying employees too much

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    They are a hands-off firm, in other words - they let you self-empower and run your own territory within certain parameters

    Cons

    Not a lot of support firm-wide

    Advice to Management

    Consider investing more in growth and internal resources for business development
