    Pros

    Good opportunity to develop career. Baker Tilly is a good name, a growing company

    Cons

    Fairly hard-nosed culture, especially among the audit seniors who you're working with all the time. There's often a lack of instruction/guidance on audits despite being a trainee, and you can be criticised for asking too many questions.

    Advice to Management

    Have Audit Senior's be reviewed by the people below them as well as those above them.

    I have been working at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Great way to get experience and learn a lot. I highly recommend working here to develop your career
    2. Nice people most of the time
    3. Flexible (lax dress code, will let you go to appointment during day if you make up time)

    Cons

    1. Busy season hours are difficult to handle
    2. Management does not do a good job of managing workloads
    3. Unfair treatment of some employees
    4. I've noticed perks and benefits have slowly been declining. For example, the office used to give $100 gift cards to everyone for Christmas, and that no longer happens. Also decreased the amount of reimbursement for safe rides.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the work around more evenly, so someone who is desperately looking for work can find some, and no one has to work more than others.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance & benefits

    Cons

    Leadership takes credit for success but quick to put responsibility for failures on subordinates and the lack of transparency results in mis-communication & clear objectives.

    Advice to Management

    There is bullying from Senior Management & team leaders that has been ignored & overlooked for too long which is a shame for a firm of this size.


  7. "Good company with guidance"

    Pros

    Company social events and ability to work from home, sometimes.

    Cons

    Very tight-knit teams. You're either on a team or outside looking in. Lack of racial diversity. Very cut-throat environment, with most vying for attention and trying to scale-up on your back.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity, diversity, diversity.
