I have been working at BDO USA

Pros

You can learn a lot if you are willing to. Being competent and knowledgeable is encouraged although you have to pay for it by eating the time.

Cons

As with other public accounting companies, the contradiction between the requirement to complete (good quality!) work within the budget and insistence on billing all your time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really do not have any as I understand their predicament in the currrent economic environment. However, the flex time initiative and all those other alternative working arrangement seem to be usustainable and simply a sham.
