    Pros

    They provide excellent opportunity for advancement. If you perform well and show you can perform your work at the next level early promotion can be possible.

    Cons

    Partners do not always disseminate information in a timely manner which can lead to members of the management team being left uniformed.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, quick promotions, overall good hours in comparison with big 4, nice coworkers

    Cons

    Merger issues, lack of coherency and standard processes across business units, poor workflow management, HR protective of corporate interests and not responsive to employee complaints of harassment, legacy Baker Tilly is now pushing hard partners of acquired locations with sales quota, older management forced to retire, smaller locations are getting consolidated and employees are asked to travel far to larger hubs

    Advice to Management

    Review your employee turnover in the NE region, particularly in the Philadelphia Business Unit.

    I worked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ummmm.....nice office is about all it’s got.

    Cons

    Constant turnover which brings down morale. No senior staff because everyone quits before then. Managers are overworked and crabby- not willing to train and educate the staff. The pay was not commensurate with the hours. It’s a firm created through countless mergers so it doesn’t seem to know who it is
