    I have been working at BDO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    BDO has a strong company culture that permeates to individual offices. They push core values at every level, and hold OMP's responsible for developing the Company brand. As a mid-tier firm, we have the resources of a Big 4 firm, but the opportunities for growth and promotion of a local accounting firm. In my first year, I worked on Revenue, Equity, Debt and planning activities I did not expect to see until I am a Senior Associate. Overall, great opportunities and excellent values.

    Cons

    The question - Who is BDO? Despite being 5th nationally, we still do not have the recognition and reach of a Big 4 firm. However, we are expanding our opportunities and growing exponentially. Senior Management is dependent upon the office location.
