    Pros

    Easy to complete taxes on the software. If you have a simple W2 then any monkey can fill it out. The tax associates do take tests and continue education.

    Cons

    -Pay is just a little above min. Wage -People Center is rude when call -expect unprofessional people in the office that are always gossiping about someone. -office manager likes to start drama and doesn't understand tax stuff. Look for the office manager to always ask help from another. --If customer gets a tax letter, the company wants to charge them $100 just to read the letter unless they pay the 'peace of mind.' -It costs employees $20 to take tests and needed courses to work.

    Not a Serious Software Company

    Pros

    Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    If you are a serious software engineer, I recommend you stick away from this company. All projects that I worked on have no architectural standards or optimization in mind. Everything seems "duct taped" together in hopes that it will work for the next tax season however this does not account maintenance of the code, resulting in more areas where projects can break. Also, with new management and organization changes, you will do little to no software development. Everything is done with an in house tool that have you connect the dots or map data but it is not coding. You are expected to learn all about taxes instead instead of developing your coding skills. In the long run you will lose your coding skills working at H&R Block. Also with little or no room for career development, it makes it almost impossible to advance as a software engineer.
