I have been working at H&R Block as a contractor (More than 8 years)

Pros

Seasonal work, pleasant co-workers, develop relation with clients, extremely cheap continuing education

Cons

Unpaid continuing education focuses a great deal on work done on Block's proprietary software, year round emails, updates, and expectations to keep up with Block's demands, pay for new associates is not much better than one could get at a fast food chain, grocery store or department store without needing 100 hours of training before you start work, compensation adjusted downward every year, seniority pay was taken away for anyone with less than 10 years experience with Block, too much emphasis on non-tax products...

Advice to Management

Focus on taxes!

    I worked at H&R Block full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very Flexible, and they work with you.

    Cons

    I really haven't had any bad experiences. The clients that come in are great if you are good to them. The tax pro's will irritate you more than the clients.

    Advice to Management

    none.

    I worked at H&R Block full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your level, it can be a very nice place to work.

    Cons

    It's more about tenure than results. Longevity is rewarded over driving results so it becomes a culture of mediocrity. Headquarters is disturbingly political with one click coming to power and firing those they feel aren't united with their click. It has gotten better though. Maybe they are finally stabilizing a bit but they still have a major reorganization every year so you never know from one year to the next if you'll still have a job.

    Advice to Management

    Reward talent and quit churning your top performers in favor of those more politically connected.
