    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They care about their employees and provide a very flexible work schedule. A lot of great people with a "work hard play hard" outlook.

    Cons

    Public accounting hours are notoriously long. However management at times uses "it's public accounting and that's just the way it is" as an excuse to not try to implement a suggested improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the system of giving raises/promotions to have more specific information available on what factors are used to determine these.

    I worked at Eide Bailly full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people who work there are friendly and give advice on how to keep your head down and away from the wrong people.

    Cons

    A lot of gossip and bullying. Company claims to want to be progressive and innovative but they are decades behind the industry leaders. Their culture that they preach is not at all what they follow. They allow for employees to feel bad about themselves and they do nothing to punish those who make the workplace an unsafe one.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what it is that you really want with the company and its growth. If nothing changes, nothing changes. Don't allow good people to get pushed out because of bad ones.

    Pros

    Great culture. The people are fantastic to work with and make working not seem like a job. Great firm to get public accounting experience and learn a lot about non-SEC clients in a variety of industries. I love that you can either make this a career or get the necessary experience to find a good job. Partner group has an open door policy and is willing to help you succeed in your career whether it will be with Eide Bailly or somewhere else.

    Cons

    As with public accounting, hours can be long sometimes but nothing out of the ordinary for this industry. People who care about work/life balance will need to assess what that means to them and determine if public accounting is a career for them. If you are looking to work 40 -50 hours during busy season and 40 the rest of the year, public accounting in general is not a career for you.
