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

    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.

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

    I worked at Eide Bailly full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Supportive 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance and peer culture helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    Growth 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 ManagementAdvice

    Need 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.
