For entry-level, tax is not the best department to be in. I would start in audit and if you're truly interested in tax, do a MST somewhere and get your CPA, then transition.
BDPB is somewhat cool about transitioning, but that's my best advice for tax-interested folk. Tax is the bread and butter of this company, then litigation (which they rarely hire entry-level), and audit is the smallest department (for accounting services).Advice to ManagementAdvice
Better training for full-time employees coming out of college, the tests and basic training the firm gives is very lackluster and a monkey could do it.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through college or university. The process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Berkowitz Dick Pollack & Brant in February 2009.Interview Details
Went through rotational internship program, did well and was actively recruited by BDPB for months thereafter.
As far as interviewing for the rotational program:
1. Did on campus interview with a partner, did very well. Basic personl questions, one I remember most was "List three people who inspire you and why?"
2. Was invited for on-site interview, wasn't so much an interview process as it was learning more about the firm and different roles.
3. If you were invited for on-site, it pretty much meant you were selected for the program.
4. After leaving the office that day, I was mailed an offer from Mr. Berkowitz himself that I had 5 days to decide on. Accepted.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsThey did not leave much room for negotiation. However, salary was at least $4,000 higher than Big 4 offered, they pay overtime, have nice perks, and also gave year end bonuses and what not.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
