Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

Pros

Good work/life balance with genuine respect for personal situations
Empowered to work on your own on projects with little direction or supervision (also a negative tho)
Good office and infrastructure facilities

Cons

Low reward and recognition compared to other employers
Lack of leadership by middle management
Lack of career prospects and development
Lack of management support on projects

Advice to Management

Listen to the pulse surveys staff fill out and look at rewarding those staff that go the extra mile. Understand where to position BDO as an employer and give staff some security which means not holding redundancy twice every year and then following with a round of unfair dismissals

    Current Employee - Insolvency Administrator in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Insolvency Administrator in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    - Overall relaxed atmosphere;
    - The ability to work in many areas of your field and not (necessarily) the same repetitive tasks;
    - Generally encouraged to further your education and personal development.

    Cons

    - Benefits have been reduced each year for the last three years (no more matching a percentage RRSPs, reduced dental coverage etc.);
    - Salaries for this position are not very competitive compared to other large accounting firms;
    - There are a lot of office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Courses to assist in dealing with people for entry-level management; more focus on dealing with conflict and resolution at the senior management level, as opposed to saying anything just to get the individual out of your office.
