CRA (Current Employee), San FranciscoFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: nice location
Cons: medical plan is the worst i have seen - very high deductibles
This is a small branch most co-workers are great people. The home office staff is nice to work with as well. Management is not all that interested in staff and there are few paths to grow unless you are in Milwaukee.

File Clerk (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: long breaks
Cons: repetitive work
first thing in the morning i get the mail then deliver it to everyone; after that i took their paperwork and filed it all away. that was what i had to do all day. this was my first job so it taught me how to file correctly. management was fine and helped only when called for. co-workers were so-so not much to say. the job was not hard but their was nothing to enjoyable either.

wholesome midwestern values
CRA (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: well established firm, appreciates the workplace as a whole
Cons: doesn't realize the cost of living differences between milwaukee and the rest of the country.
Working for the corporate office was an amazing experience, but unfortunately it did not transfer to a regional office when I transferred. Smaller, back office employees seem to get lost in the shuffle – more... when it comes to the overall Baird experience. They base all of their salaries off of Milwaukee associates, and they don't seem to fully comprehend the cost of living increases other employees are experiencing across the country. – less

New environment of employment.
Office Production Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 22, 2013
Pros: cab rides and dinner when i worked late hours.
Responsible for handling all the daily operations and clerical tasks of the administration department. Answering phone calls, e-mails, binding and book making for financial attorneys presentations. Assisted – more... in all the computer related activities, maintenance and repair. Provided help and support to the employees in completing their work. Coworkers and management was good in helping me adapt to the environment. The hardest part of the job was being challenged in meeting the deadlines so the financial attorneys can accomplish their presentations for the company. I was glad to be successful because the attorneys always showed there gratitude. – less
