Employee Reviews

  • "I enjoy all the different challenges that I am given. I feel like the hours are manageable, and everybody pitches in if the work load is un-even."
  • "There is at least one night where we all go out together after dinner to socialize. Frequent Friday night happy hours are attended by managers and staff."
  • "As I get older, I value my personal time away from the job more. When you are young, you should expect to work longer hours."
  • "Our office promotes work/life balance and teamwork. Partners have an open-door policy and even eat in the lunch room with us."
  • "Public accounting demands 2,500+ total hours per year. The rewards are worth the effort."
  • "Compensation may be fair but on the low side. Young staff need cash, and we have lost several just to the fact that another firm will pay more."
  • "No bonuses, but I feel like I am very well compensated."
  • "BKD is a great place to work and to make a career. It is rewarding both professionally and financially."
  • "Good training, and mentor programs are strong but need improvement."
  • "Formal training every year, as well as monthly lunch and learns."
  • "Many women partners, and the firm seems to work with women on maternity leave. Mainly a Midwest firm, so there doesn't appear to be a lot of minorities, but that could because of the towns we're in. Have seen many women come back from maternity leave to work on a part-time schedule, and then jump back to full time when they’re ready."
  • "Actively pursue all qualified candidates without regard to race, gender, or sexual orientation."
  • "We are being pushed to find new business."
  • "Our industry focus seems to foster growth."
