    I have been working at Robert W. Baird & Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Baird generally has a friendly employee base. The long tenure of some employees is both a good thing/bad thing - management is not always effective about managing out talent given nepotism remains healthy in the company head quarters.

    Cons

    Brand not known well outside of Milwaukee
    Compensation well below industry average
    Management tends to have a myopic view of the world given the midwestern (versus global) emphasis

    I have been working at Robert W. Baird & Co. as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back culture, active and engaging intern activities, supervisors interested in your professional development. I really like the culture and values of this organization.

    Cons

    Pay was ok, not great but ok. I guess since it was an internship, I should be happy I was paid.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the internship program growing as it is. The internship presentation, volunteer activities, socials, etc help develop intern's professional network and skills.
