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

    Pros

    The firm has great technology; wide range of clients (which is a pro and con as staff have no input on which industry/client they prefer to work in).

    Cons

    Work/life balance not appropriate for mid-tier firm; pay not comparable to Big 4, but hours are nearly the same as Big 4 (2100 billable annually); management denies all morale problems and is ignorant regarding market conditions at other firms; new hires can't get the experience they need because managers are too busy and cannot teach them anything. If you desire career over work/life balance, go to Big 4; if you desire work/life balance over career, then go to a smaller firm.

    Advice to Management

    Choose your niche. Be competitive with the Big 4 (i.e. hire 50 people each year and pay them well) or be competitive with mid-tier (i.e. improve work/life balance). You can't compete in all markets.
