    I worked at Eide Bailly full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to work in complex industries and freedom to work without constant supervision. Salary was competitive and great work experience straight out of college

    Cons

    Long hours and stressful deadlines. Didn't always get the supervision required for a job. Internal management conflicts and a lack of office unity. Some abuse of power from senior associates.

    Advice to Management

    Create unity between managers and partners. Monitor behavior of senior associates . Have structure for new employees. Retain employees so that the rest of the firm does not suffer when multiple employees quit.

    Pros

    The Company is very flexible in work arrangements, has great culture and promotes work/life benefit.

    Cons

    The Company could increase the compensation to be on par for the size of firm they are. Also, communication could be better.

    Great job leading the firm to grow. However, don't forget the loyal staff that have been with you day 1.

    I worked at Eide Bailly as an intern

    Pros

    Placed schooling first as an intern while also allowing me to experience what the tax season is like

    Pros

    The culture and the people you work with. It is important to like the people you work with as you spend most of your time with them. There is a sense that the firm and management really do care about its people.

    Cons

    Compensation seems to be lower than market and health insurance is just ok. There is little transparency about how your salary is determined.

    I worked at Eide Bailly full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    PTO policy gives ample time off, opportunities to work with a variety of clients made the work interesting. Great people to work with, bright co-workers.

    Cons

    Employee portion of health insurance premium is expensive. Busy season hours are high, but to be expected. There seems to be a glut of partners at the moment that prevent bright people from being promoted until some of those partners retire.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your people more! The log long hours during busy season and you don't offer any form of bonus. While annual evaluations/raises are nice, they seem to be lagging relative to other firms
