    I worked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone was very nice and made me feel very welcome. Plenty of networking events and fun socials. Work wasn't too demanding but beneficial if you wanted to challenge yourself.

    Cons

    If you're not into lots of outside-of-work events, this might not be a great fit. It is very emphasized and everyone talks about the "work-life balance."

    I worked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause full-time

    Pros

    - casual environment - work/life balance (sometimes not the case) - benefits - good/fun co workers - office provides a lot of food and happy hours

    Cons

    - the projects are extremely boring and the work on those projects can be very mundane - they don't seem to care what you're interested in, you'll get thrown on whatever comes up if you're available - the pay is pretty low compared to other firms (big 4) - they want you to get involved with other parts of the firm but there is not much value in that because the only thing you're going to gain is a friendship, there's no chance you could be put on a project with another group in the firm unless they had a need and they would bring you in because you're a warm body, not because you're skilled in something - the partners should be selling, not working in the weeds on a project - the culture is pretty clicky, there's a lot of people at BT who were interns in college and are still there 8 (or 15) years later. Seemingly high turnover for people who came in as experienced hires

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth and easy to switch department. Casual dress code and the name of Baker Tilly on your resume.

    Cons

    They pride themselves in work life balance but upper level management is strictly against it. Poor compensation. Also, very strict on working at home even though that is what they sell. No recognition for the hard work you put in. Managers, including performance counselors, doesn't help you to succeed but often throw you under the bus.
