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

Pros

Good experience, knowledgeable partners (until mandatory retirement), lots of training during the first year. Not a terrible place to begin your career in public accounting as long as you're OK with the second-tier job opportunities that follow. Some offices seems great, some are terrible.

Cons

Average pay and small raises. With a relatively high number of partners for a firm of their size, you notice the day-to-day cost cutting everywhere. Offices can feel like a "good ol' boy's" club where it's acceptable for managers to discuss female staffs' "talents" during lunch, etc. Expansion through acquisition creates a firm without a coherent culture. They shuffle people around enough that this will probably work itself out.

    I worked at BKD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with an incredibly talented team and made many lifelong friends. Team culture was great. I was never asked to take any shortcuts while I worked here as I had at another top 10 firm.

    Cons

    Budgeting for jobs was terrible. Budgets were often too small and partners were unwilling to write-off or charge necessary overruns to clients. This adds additional stress to staff and senior in-charges.
