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

Pros

You learn a ton! Great way to start an accounting carrier.

Cons

Staff get worked to death. High turnover from burnout. Promotions and raises are really small and slow early in carrier.

Advice to Management

Allow seniors more flexibility in how they manage staff. Micro management stifles innovation and creativity. This leads to an unnecessary environment of stress. The work is difficult enough, you don't have to create more pressure.
