The senior management is doing a good job. It would be nice for the senior and management level professionals to get reimbursment for the use of wireless data service for communication devices such as blackberry.

    Current Employee - Manager in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Manager in Boston, MA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    People you work with are great people with the occasional very poor one as with any company, getting bonuses is nice and can be good most times better than big 4,

    Cons

    Very tollerent of poor supervisors, no mechanism for feedback on upper level and direct management or any care to find out, lack of giving credit to the right person beyond direct supervisor, after that it goes to the supervisor and the reverse is true where screw-ups get passed to those who the supervisor points the figer at.

    Advice to Management

    Better 360 degree and closer review of high level management, communicate with lower levels since office gossip is the current best communication mechanism and is not effective or accurate, you hire smart people and then treat them as other than basic inteilligence, people pick up on the BS no matter if it's me giveing it or high level management.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It's a great place with lots of upward mobility. The management and associates mingle very often and it's a very family-oriented work environment. Plus it gives you the best of both worlds: "Big 4" exposure to public accounting while also minimizing the extensive travel and work hours. The local firms are too small in my opinion to get the full excitement, while in the Big 4 someone can end up auditing "cash" for weeks! This way even associates here can take part in a full audit with managers and partners.

    Cons

    Oftentimes the company name BDO is not recognized by others. Even though it's ranked as the top 10 accounting firms in the world, I often have to explain to others that BDO is an accounting firm that is very highly ranked.

    Advice to Management

    More organization in the scheduling and grouping of engagements.
