Pros

Flexibility of adjusting hours for family situations or events. My manager frequently insist I do a double take when I mention the kids. My family loves it that I get flexible hours for special times.

Cons

Managers sometimes not giving full recognition where it is due. Difficulty with getting salary bumps especially in the down economy in spite of pulling doubly hard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on retention of prized staff as this will undoubtedly impact the firm when the tide turns. Not even attention or funding to educate the most deserving people.

    Pros

    The size of the firm allows experience in multiple areas, and receiving recognition for the work you do. BDO has the resources of a large multinational firm with the feel of a smaller firm.

    Cons

    BDO focuses on middle market clients. Although this allows for a variety of work, you may miss out on some of the larger clients which would also offer valuable experience.

    Pros

    To give something on your resume

    Cons

    Worst firm to work for as an intern. As someone mentioned before, the firm pays no attention to their intern's schedule. They expect you to work long hours during busy seasons but couldn't care less about your exams. It is frowned upon when you take days off and just want to take the most out of their interns while they are here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    School first, work second. We're interns, not your full-time employees.
