    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Big firm work but not a small firm office feel

    Cons

    Tax season sucks big time. 55 charge hours equates to 70 hours at the office each week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make people leave after 65 hours. Quality of work and speed of work is reduced because people get burnt out

    Pros

    The company treats its employees very well and understand that life can get in the way of work sometimes. They have always treated me very well.

    Cons

    As for any accounting firm, the number of hours the employees are required to work are not any different than any other firm in the profession but Eide Bailly makes sure its employees are also given time off so they can recover from the hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work of treating your employees respectfully and the firm will continue to grow.

    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The firm is very flexible and open to work life balance discussions.
    Partners are great people to work for.
    I wide range of industries.

    Cons

    You will travel which for single people may be a good thing, but if you have a family it may be a strain.
    Pay is a bit lower then you can get in private accounting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You seem to be loosing a lot of people because of salary. But you are also loosing a lot of staff that want to start a family and feel like the job cannot fit there life style. If this is true or not I do not know but maybe a dialogue is needed and changes need to be made.

    I worked at Eide Bailly full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In the Colorado offices, the leadership promoted work-life balance. They allowed flexibility in your schedule to fit in work and personal commitments. The company offers a lot of technology training sessions continually through out the year. The company offers a lot of tax technical training as well.

    Cons

    The clients are generally small to medium-sized, closely held businesses, so there isn't a whole lot of variety or challenge to the work.

    I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very laid back with decent compensation and benefits.
    Great opportunity to get exposure to many different industries and employers in the middle market throughout the Western United States.

    Cons

    Expensive family health insurance.
    Long hours during busy season.
    A little bit too comfortable with the status quo. "If it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality.
    You have to stay with the company for a long time in order to truly reap the financial reward for your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some room for growth in margins instead of just revenue through a greater focus on operational efficiency.
    I would personally prefer a compensation system that offers more immediate benefit for hard work, rather than one that requires a long-term committment in order to see financial reward. Annual raises and long term vesting of the profit sharing program doesn't allow much mobility. I'm aware of why this is designed this way, but it's time to embrace the mobile workforce of the 21st century.
