Comments

Compensation is good, you feel appreciated and have a great work environment. Willing to work with employees to ensure they are happy and want you to stay at the firm. Good work life balance and great place to be if you want to build your career in public accounting. One of the best decisions I ever made was working at BK.

Firm culture and the collaborative team approach is 1st and foremost. Lot's of feedback informal and formal for team members to improve their performance. Mentorship program for team members. Accessible partners. Lots of firm growth.

Downers

Expectations are high when new team members join the firm. You are expected to contribute. Plenty of work means job security, but long hours.

Comments

Blackman gives everyone in the firm the opportunity to develop their careers fully through industry specialization as well as providing the tools and training necessary to continue thier education after university training. There is a lot of opportunity to interact with business development process in addition to the consulting services normall provided by a firm.

The people I work with make this just fun.

Comments

Firm culture and employee happiness (evidenced by employee turnover) are really the defining features of Blackman Kallick. BK isn't outdone by anyone in terms of training, career advancement, and work/life balance. It may not have the prestige or the monetary perks of the Big 4, but that's not what I value most.

Culture and Location

Downers

Long hours but the work is the same at any public accounting firm, really.

Comments

Honestly, the workload is about the same anywhere if you're in public accounting and salaries seem to be similar across the board. Focus on the culture of the firm and the location! You will be spending a lot of time with these people, so be sure you really like them and feel like you're a good fit and vice versa.
