      I can’t think of many cons. Everyone is trying to figure out the new “norm” in a remote capacity and BDO is managing that well!

      Great company

      Pros

      BDO was a great place to work. The management as a whole was great. They truly care about their employees Public accounting has some rough hours, but the leader here did everything possible to help make everyone's lives easier. If they thought you'd be worked too hard, they'd rather take the work off you and give it to someone else, if not to another office. The grass isn't always greener on the other side. It's greener where it's taken care of, and the BDO Memphis office takes care of it.

      Cons

      typical public accounting, research what you're getting into before you do.
