    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - New Office with great amenities and location - Employee benefits and compensation are competitive - Happy hours and firm events

    Cons

    - Extremely poor leadership in Minneapolis office, all the way from partners down to managers. - Zero work-life balance - Lots of office politics to contend with even as a first year associate. Staff above you will throw you under the bus at the nearest opportunity to make themselves look competent. - Associates are instructed to eat hours to boost the bottom line. - Open office concept great in theory but does not work well in practice. - Established internal processes for preparing returns are poorly implemented and generally not followed. - Pointless meetings that are ran very inefficiently and take up valuable work time. - Mentoring is almost non existent and usually turns out to be detrimental to your career if you do not offer the right feedback and praise local firm leadership.
