    I worked at BDO (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are very nice and willing to help when needed. I was given a lot of responsibility as an intern and learned a lot. Was offered full-time position at the end of the internship.

    Cons

    As a smaller firm, BDO clients are usually smaller less organized companies. Internship program started slow at first, but once I was assigned a client work picked up.

    Advice to Management

    Organized the schedule of the internship so that interns have work to do from the first week on. Also make sure interns have the opportunity to be mentored by the professionals at the firm.
