    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BDO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is slightly higher than market Benefits are decent and well rounded Lunches in April twice a week

    Cons

    No proper direction from senior accountants with regards to expectations Becoming like a Big 4 and a hostile workplace where people feel like they cant make mistakes and every move they make they are being watched Overly critical rather than providing helpful feedback for growth High senior accountant staff turnover which is leading to junior staff being led by less experienced seniors
