I have been working at BDO UK full-time

Pros

Great culture and people. The best job to learn about financial statements and about finance more broadly through the ACA qualification.
Client-facing from day one.

Largely a desk bound job using a laptop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As another review said, "you're being very short sighted".
    Stop undermining your staff and try actually upholding the values you so glibly espouse.

    I worked at BDO UK

    Pros

    Good non monetary benefits (e.g. Six days for charity work)
    Ability to make your own job if you persevere

    Cons

    Managers too focused on sorting themselves out
    No support post accountancy qualification or clear structure to help with next steps

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bite the bullet and spend some sinus money on advertising the brand globally- dropping the local names is a good first step, but it's still the worst of both worlds...
