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

Pros

While each office, and practice are unique, I have found talent and great people in all offices I have encountered.

Cons

BDO is at an edge where it could become a large enough firm for there to be a BIG 5 again, at least internationally. However, the US growth has stagnated and the brand gets beat by Big 4 marketing quite often in the tech consulting proposals.

Advice to Management

Keep doing the great job you're doing, and consider investming more in BD and brand promotion.

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

    Pros

    BDO offers several growth opportunities, firm leadership is top notch, and the overall work environment offers flexibility and with competitive pay.

    Cons

    The hours, like more public accounting jobs, can be brutal at times. The firm could use some improvement in their training offerings, especially for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the current course. BDO is becoming more and more a household name in the accounting industry.
