    I have been working at BDO USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, sense of family,

    Cons

    Low pay, which contributes to low morale

    Advice to Management

    Don't be surprised to see people leaving as the pay is too low to afford rent in the bay area.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Compensation is compatible with industry standards. Benefits are also comparable with industry standards. Good training modules

    Cons

    Grew a little too big too fast. A lot of growing pains incorporating other offices into current ones that didn't seem like everything was thought through completely , no real work life balance

    BDO is a good company to work for.

    The cons are what all public accounting firms will share in common; hours, structure, etc.

    Pros

    They have made a real effort to staff up the tax group recently and this past busy season was made much more doable than in the past as a result. Management seems to have a clear vision of where they want to take the firm in the next few years and has made real progress recently. Not the Big 4 in a good way - Partners know your name, understand that you have other options and treat you as someone who adds value to the company. Good camaraderie among staff- if someone is getting overloaded others will try to help if they can.

    Cons

    Doesn't have name recognition outside the financial world. Exit opportunities not quite what you can get when moving on from Big 4. Pay seems to be lagging behind competitors a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Somehow it feels like upper management don't really care about their staff.

    Pros

    Smaller firm environment, challenging work. Fun teams, lots of young people to interact with and go out with after work.

    Cons

    Sometimes the communication is lacking. I wish the leaders would share more information about the firm and about the office.
