    I worked at BDO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy interview process consisting of mostly behavioral questions and nice interviewers. They take you to Orlando, Dallas, or some location for training. Good starting pay and pays for CPA exam and materials. Gives free food and gifts on occasion.

    Cons

    Training is not very helpful because they just consist of lectures (for national training) and online videos with a bunch of repetitive videos/documents about the company's benefits and policies. The exams following the online training videos are unhelpful because they do not tell you what you got wrong after. Also, had a bad experience with management. Not very understanding, no warning or sympathy even as a new hire. The culture of the firm has also changed and is more conservative. Had an overall bad experience. The people are nice but dull.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the training videos to tell employees what they got wrong so they can learn.
