    Pros

    You will work less hours here then your friends at other firms.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate employees on an individual level. Personal compliments on work well done and interest in employees personal lives go a long way. More so then just taking a group out to lunch.

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

    Pros

    The experience you get at EB is amazing! With it being a regional firm, you get a lot of variety with the clients you work on, and the clients are large enough that you still get the experience of seeing how larger companies operate. I am completely satisfied with what I have learned and feel that I would succeed in any financial role I take on after this. The people are amazing as well. The Boise office partner group are fun people that truly care about your success at the firm. As you gain more experience and move through the ranks, the hours become somewhat more flexible, which is something that I love. Employees get 4 weeks of PTO, which is unheard of at most companies. The Boise office is on the 8th floor of the Wells Fargo building downtown and the firm pays for your parking.

    Cons

    As with any public accounting firm, the long hours become unbearable after time. The longer you're there, the more responsibility you pick up, and you have to continually work those hours to be able to keep up with all the tasks for the audits you're responsible for. The manager/partner group in the Boise office for the most part is great about jumping in to help, and the experience is awesome, but after a few years it's just hard to keep doing it.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing the best they can in an industry where the turnover is high and there is always work to be done. I don't know that there's much they could do differently and I feel like it's overall a great firm to work for.

    Tons of travel. Tons of experience. Great management and you get to work with some of the smartest people there are.

    It is public accounting so you have to get use to long hours and working in a different work environment from week to week.

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    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.

    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time

    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.
