    Was a great company to work for before they restructured in 2009

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsA great firm to work for if you want broad exposure to mid market companies.

    ConsAfter the restructuring in 2009, teams tended to be under pressure to complete work within very tight time-frames.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBDO used to have a great proposition up to 2009: more experienced staff than the big four, low staff turnover rates, continuity of staff on client projects, and a focus on delivering high quality work. In my view this was a winning proposition and in the long term pays off better than simply trying to maximise profits in the short term.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not too supported

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood non monetary benefits (e.g. Six days for charity work)
    Ability to make your own job if you persevere

    ConsManagers too focused on sorting themselves out
    No support post accountancy qualification or clear structure to help with next steps

    Advice to Senior ManagementBite the bullet and spend some sinus money on advertising the brand globally- dropping the local names is a good first step, but it's still the worst of both worlds...
