    "Dysfunctional and disconnected"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at BDO full-time

    Pros

    Office Administrative staff and managers are genuine and hard working.

    Cons

    Office partners are completely disconnected from the business needs of the staff. Talk a lot about values and culture, but when it comes time to for action, it means very little. Staff feel overworked and under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    It might be a good idea to look in the mirror and ask why there seems to be a revolving door... and what can be done to correct it so BDO could be more competitive in the local market.
