    Pros

    Great benefits package, competitive salary to the local area. Culture fit is huge. If you're working hard, it will get noticed.

    Cons

    If you aren't a CPA, no matter your skill set or potential revenue, you answer to the will of the CPA leadership. Stated business strategy doesn't often mash up with reality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking of the staff as replaceable and interchangeable. Millennial a respond better when they feel you invest in them, so they will invest in you. Brings a much stronger incentive to evangelize for your organization.

    Pros

    The culture at Eide Bailly is excellent. Staff are caring, intelligent, and always willing to help in any way possible.

    Cons

    The feedback system is subpar. Formalized feedback is given approximately twice per year with little emphasis on giving more frequent feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those employees that work hard throughout the year. As is the case with all organizations, some people take on more responsibilities than others and these individuals should be rewarded as such.

    Pros

    Great experience that leads to a better job.

    Cons

    Lots of hours as with any public accounting firm. No reward for working so many hours during busy season. Management is not appreciative of their employees.

    Pros

    Great work environment/firm culture.
    Competitive pay.
    Top notch employees

    Cons

    Need better guidance or mentoring if you will, for employee efficiencies & process improvements.

    Advice to Management

    They need to "show" employees how to work better with more efficiency - not just talk "at" them.

    Pros

    if you're a hard worker then eventually you'll get recognized. Each office definitely has a local flavor. That's good/bad.

    Cons

    Firm needs a more cohesive client/employee experience. They don't have that now. IT development needs to step it up.

    Advice to Management

    Feels like working for a small firm, the good and the bad, but with resources. Staff presented as afterthought.

    Pros

    Fair pay, great benefits, flexible scheduling, beautiful fully renovated office in the middle of downtown. Paid convenient parking.

    Cons

    Little room to move from an administrative role. Tax partners and staff can be difficult to communicate with. Admin tax team lead can be a bit overpowering and controlling and micro-managing. Likely if you do something wrong you wont hear about it directly.

    Advice to Management

    Give more regard to the requests of the admin assistants that the tax partners and staff adhere to thereby making their job flow more smoothly.

    Pros

    Great culture and coworker environment. There is a significant emphasis on having fun while working hard. You get hands on experience and exposure to most industries your first year.

    Cons

    Seniors get hammered with crazy workloads, which is common for public accounting. You don't get public company experience unless you are on the banking jobs.

    Pros

    I was able to be on many different types of clients and see a lot of different accounting issues.

    Cons

    I was at Eide Bailly before it turned to EB. It became very bureaucratic, and they started to not care about their employees as much as they did before. It became a numbers game.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about your employees. They are what makes your business.
