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

    Pros

    As the office is roughly 40 plus individuals at any time, we have a great family atmosphere where everyone can easily talk to each other.

    Cons

    Turnover of prior seniors and management have led to a very bottom heavy environment, forcing many new associates to take on new roles than what would be considered ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to retain your employees. Extended busy season destroys the moral on the audit side of our office and no one is willing to step up and really calm people down come summer time.

    Pros

    Lots of experience, daily meal stipend if you work over 10 hours in a day during busy season.

    Cons

    Long hours, no real work life balance, you get promoted every 2 years based upon time not accomplishments and knowledge.

    I worked at BDO USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BDO is a growing company and I gained good auditing experience from them. You may have some small clients that allow you the gain the experience (and headache) of doing pretty much an entire audit by yourself. This can be a mess but in the end I've had the opportunity to work on many different facets instead of working for months on one area of a mega-huge corporation.

    Cons

    Pay seems to be less than big 4, hours seem to be more (longer duration of busy season), some people work considerably more than others
