    Pros

    The people were great and provided a culture where i could learn a lot coming out of college. I could also see some more opportunity for advancement than iI see at other big CPA firms.

    Cons

    I worked on a lot of really, really small companies. Companies where I just didn't learn very much. Also, I spent a lot of time doing nothing

    Pros

    BDO is a growing company and I gained good auditing experience from them. You may have some small clients that allow you the gain the experience (and headache) of doing pretty much an entire audit by yourself. This can be a mess but in the end I've had the opportunity to work on many different facets instead of working for months on one area of a mega-huge corporation.

    Cons

    Pay seems to be less than big 4, hours seem to be more (longer duration of busy season), some people work considerably more than others
