Working at Robert W. Baird a typical day start with me making sure everything is stocked in the copying room as well as the kitchen. When the morning task is complete I report to one of my co-workers for more work in which I must complete. This may consist of filing, copying, scanning, shredding, etc. when that task is complete I often ask for more work in which I cannot disclose.The management at Baird is very interactive and respectful. The workplace is quiet and steady. The most enjoyable part of working at Baird would be the amount of movement I achieve throughout the day, also interacting with my coworkers as well.
Its a great opportunity. its allowed me to develop people skills also efficiency.

I enjoyed my time at Baird for the most part, worked in a small department and was left alone for the most part working with a couple of different teams. That being said, there were times when it could be difficult and lack of communication was evident.
some free lunches, paid holiday and vacation, 401K
could be made to feel inferior, tight deadlines and the blame game
You can feel the sadness and negativity as soon as you enter the work place.

Very unhealthy place to work. People are pressured to do what goes angainst their believes. A lot of bulling from management. This is the worst environment I have worked at and am a seasoned employee. Your sitting arrangements are like sardines in a can. Bathroom conditions are 6 stalls for over 200 men. Same for woman.
It is a mighty white dominated place to work at. No diversity.

Compensation was not good but understandable as I started as a temporary employee. I applied to get hired on full time and interviewed and got the position, but they pay did not increase at all from being a temp employee. The culture is not as cool as what people say
Integrity is irreplaceable. It's true. The culture at the corporate office is fantastic and supportive. It is highly encouraged to take care of each other and the client. No one hides behind company policy or their job description to make excuses.

Baird lives up to its cultural commitment to the associates and clients. Top executives are committed to the firms cultural principles. There are a lot of opportunities for associates to participate in firm wide projects.
Great environment. Enjoyed leadership and co-workers. Everyone was aways extremely nice and capable to help if you had any questions. Corporate office did a great job with position training and creating a great atmosphere.
Investment Banking Summer Associate (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 26, 2016
Good deal flow, mostly private middle market. Good PE exposure, solid Industrials platform. Small deal teams, almost all live deals. Very little pitching. Analysts build models, associates write books.
