A relaxed work environment with decent pay and boring clients.

Fargo, ND (US)

I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time for more than a year

Pros-Decent pay and individual benefits

Cons-Expensive family health plans
-Not too many "dynamic" clients
-Status quo is king
-Recruiting and promotion can be popularity contests
-Hours can get ridiculous in the audit and tax departments

Advice to Senior ManagementPossibly focus a little more on margins rather than focusing solely on revenue growth

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Love this place!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tulsa, OK (US)

I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSupportive management with tons of room for advancement. Partners are very approachable and actually treat the staff very well. They care about work like balance and family is really important to the firm as a whole.

Training is great with the opportunity to work on lots of different clients.

ConsSome travel required.... and the pay scale could increase a little.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great sales and marketing to get you through the door but falls short of expectations.

Tax (Current Employee)
Denver, CO (US)

I have been working at Eide Bailly full-time for more than a year

ProsGood work life balance and peer culture helpful and supportive.

ConsGrowth is primarily through acquiring small firms and sole practitioner firms. That says everything about the type of work and clients you will "grow and develop" your career on. Lack of coaching, training and development, 360 feedback program is anonymous and "country club" mentality . Pay scale could increase a little and benefits are not the best.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to create a learning culture, where teamwork and collaboration are encouraged and diversity is respected and valued. Need to promote flexibility through action and not just talk.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great people with a focus on their employees

Senior Audit Associate (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

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

ProsThey hire outstanding people, so your co-workers are great. Managers and partners genuinely care about you as a person and are willing to bend over to help when you need it. Family is very important to the company as a whole. It's a regional firm with a local company feel.

ConsNo bonuses in our office. Feedback on job performance is not great.

Not as good as it seems for the Benefits Dept.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Eide Bailly

ProsProfessional work environment, friendly people at the workplace, computers are updated,
overall system easy to use.

ConsMajor mistakes by all staff including the management, lack of training the staff, staff is burned out due to the workload, no support by management when dealing with escalated calls,
systems problems caused major mistakes on accounts. This place is a revolving door with people not staying past two years.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to truly add more staff to the department and to invest in professional training.
When you value your staff and give them all the tools and support than they will stay around along time and produce great results.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
