Poor management, inadequate training, and disrespect are the order of the day.
Auditing Department (Former Employee) – Waco, TX – July 18, 2018
It was a real shame to leave an organization with above average health/dental/vision benefits. However, my departure was inevitable as management wasn't genuinely interested in correcting bad behaviors so employees possessing a strong work ethic could thrive. It was incredibly difficult to witness daily the disinterest of a management audit team with a "Do as I say" versus "Do as I do" mentality. Shareholders on the audit side seemed to delight in treating subordinates as nonpersons and/or idiots. Honestly, this was the absolute worst experience of my 30+ years as a productive member of the workforce. Moreover, BKDs workplace culture is entirely antithetical to the culture demonstrated in the audit department. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving it behind at 5:00 pm. The hardest part of the job was having no discernable support and inadequate training. Management personnel disparaged staff behind their respective backs recurrently and did not concern themselves with building up employees. It was nothing short of deplorable! In such an adversative environment it is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to learn, grow, and advance. The audit department was simply despicable; too many duplicitous managers/supervisors. The entire experience leaves a perpetually BAD taste in my mouth although it occurred only a few years ago.
Generous health/dental benefits and compensation.
Management behavior in the auditing department was both despicable and hypocritical.
