    Pros

    Good place to learn the ropes of the accounting world. Get in and get your CPA quickly, which will open up many doors for you.

    Cons

    Avoid being pigeon holed into industries that don't interest you. Obviously longer hours during busy season.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and vision are key. some members of firm leadership are better at this than others.

    I have been working at BDO full-time

    Pros

    Room to grow, multiple locations, large support group, you know your schedules in advance and great/ pay benefits. Plus, well known name in cpa firms

    Cons

    Long hours, hard to advance without CPA certificate, travel becomes tiring especially with many out of town clients. High employee turnover makes familiarity with a client harder

    Advice to Management

    Nothing- maybe offer better incentives to continue employment because there is a high turnover, but that is typical of public
