Perks

explore the firm's benefits

At Eide Bailly, we promote happy, engaged staff by making work/life balance a top priority. We promise our professionals a different kind of working experience—one full of challenge, but also rich in meaning. Okay, that’s all well and good (and 100% true), but enough with the HR speak. You came here to get the goods on all the… shall we say “tangible”… perks of working at Eide Bailly, so let’s get to it.

Health & Wellness (Beyond Insurance)
Staying fit and healthy is one of the best ways to get through busy season, especially if you’re the one crunching the numbers. So, full-time staff get a minimum of $300 each year to put toward their physical health and well-being. Put it toward a gym membership, personal training hours or your own home gym—whatever will help motivate you to get active and stay healthy.

Pro: With the money you’ll save on equipment and gym time, you’ll finally feel comfortable splurging on those flashy Lululemon leggings.
Con: You’ll no longer have any reasonable excuse not to work out.

(A Lot of) Paid Time Off
At Eide Bailly, staff members start with four weeks of paid time off per year. (That’s a whole month, in case the calculator on your smart phone/device is malfunctioning.) This accrual increases over time to reflect your position within the firm and length of service. In addition to PTO, all staff receive nine paid holidays throughout the year.

Pro: Studies prove we need time away from work to relax and refresh. It makes us better workers and better people, so enjoy your vacation—you will be encouraged to take it!
Con: You might have to spend more time with your in-laws once they get wind of all your vacation time.

Parental Leave
Family comes first at Eide Bailly. While we offer a supportive, family-like atmosphere at work, we also realize you’re sometimes needed at home … sometimes for an extended period of time. To help maintain that work/life balance during one of the most important transitions in life, Eide Bailly offers generous paid parental leave following the birth or adoption of a child.

Pro: Take it from any parent, you’ll never ever regret spending as much time as you can with your newborn. Conducting audits and preparing tax returns is, indeed, thrilling stuff but none of it compares to the bond you’ll make during those first couple months of life.
Con: Dirty, smelly baby diapers.

Community Involvement
Your desire to serve others shouldn’t end when your career begins. Eide Bailly encourages staff to be involved in various volunteer and service projects within our communities, as well as in client-related service opportunities. We’re proud to be a vibrant, community-oriented firm and seek out professionals who value the idea of giving back to the communities we serve.

Pro: You’ll meet new people with amazing stories, strengthen your relationships with your peers and learn something new each and every time you freely share your time and talents with others.
Con: While volunteering, you risk being overtaken by an overwhelming sense of gratitude for all the blessings in your life.

Matching Donations
Just when you thought there was no more free money to be had, Eide Bailly steps up and offers you yet another chance to make an impact in the community with its matching donation program. The firm matches up to $200 in qualifying donations (per year) to the charity or nonprofit organization of your choosing.

Pro: You will be able to double your impact to a cause near and dear to your heart.
Con: Your friends and family might start to question where all this “free money” is coming from, especially considering your chosen profession.

Tuition Reimbursement
If you decide to go back to school in an area related to your work, you will be eligible for tuition reimbursement of up to $2,500 per fiscal year.

Pro: It’s free money that’ll make you smarter and better at your job … and probably better looking in the long run.
Con: Even though it might help you study, you won’t be reimbursed for late-night pizza deliveries.

$1,500 to Enhance Your Pedigree
If you don't have your CPA licensure or are looking to pursue another designation, we want to help. Eide Bailly provides up to $1,500 to help you with course work, study materials and exam fees. We also offer a direct-bill with Becker, so if that is your chosen study method for the CPA exam, there is no out-of-pocket expense for you as long as you pass the exams within 12 months.

Pro: Again, more free money you can use to advance your professional career, earn more money and distinguish yourself within your industry.
Con: You’ll have to figure out what to do with all your old business cards once you earn that new designation. 

Actually Having Fun at Work
We accountants are known for our no-nonsense approach, so when someone asked, “Why not have fun at work?” we did the math and concluded there’s no good reason not to! Fun has become a core component of Eide Bailly’s corporate culture. The firm actively promotes fun at work through a variety of social activities for staff and their families, including company-sponsored athletic teams, volunteer opportunities and health-related activities.

Pro: Fun is not work. Fun is fun … but you still get paid.
Con: You might break out of your shell, make new friends and have to explain to your old friends why your new work friends are actually more fun.

So there you have it—all the amazing “extras” that come along with an offer of employment at Eide Bailly. It’s a whole lot more than free coffee, but we do have that, too, in case you were wondering.
