    I worked at Berkowitz Dick Pollack & Brant full-time for more than a year


    Great culture, perks, office, locations, and overall awesome to work at


    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.

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    They 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.
