Great job culture with associates willing to help at every turn
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – 18 June 2019
A typical day at Baird is started with a smile on your face. I learned that you can learn from many associates at Baird. It's always a good idea to experience everything that is offered such as employee resource groups and networking events. Management helps you achieve your goals but it's a priority that is solely responsible within each associate. The hardest part of the job can be deciding to leave and venture somewhere else. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and it's unique culture.

There are a lot of diverse work groups within Baird, therefore there are many things to learn. Management were not helpful in helping you grow your career within the department. The workplace culture was filled with a ton of people who never worked with diverse people.
Investment opportunities and employee appreciation events
Client Reporting Analyst (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – 26 August 2018
Baird provides many opportunities to advance your career through educational opportunities and taking on projects at work to develop new skills. The culture is very family oriented. Typically this is a good thing but can allow associates who are not a good fit to stick around.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – 20 May 2018
I worked as a receptionist, answering phones, scanning, opening mail and distributing to the correct person. I learned that the financial advisor's employment number was required on all documentation before scanning. My manager was excellent in explaining the job responsibilities. The company was a good place to work at. I enjoyed working with all the people.
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.

Equity Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 27 October 2017
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
Receptionist/ Call Center Consultant (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – 31 July 2017
It was a fun place to work. The people are very friendly and caring. In my department , my co-workers were fair and helpful to each other. I noticed how everyone kept each other informed on changes and events.
You can feel the sadness and negativity as soon as you enter the work place.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – 30 July 2017
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.
