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

    Pros

    Good in training for business development skillsets.

    Cons

    - Partners to not know how to audit. Every test is an inefficient test of details. - Very office-centric type engagement economics. There is no visibility to other offices in the South Florida area. - No room to grow. For example, there has been no partner promotion in over 10 years, and they a good amount of seniors who should be manager, and are not. - Leadership only looks out for themselves, and has no plans...

    -work with smart, great people -once trust is established, you can work with flexibility (note that this does not mean working less) - opportunity to get involved with women's inclusion, volunteering events, campus recruiting, trainings, etc.

    Advice to Management

    - don't schedule jobs back to back- give auditors some extra time in case things go wrong

      Current Employee - Audit Manager in Cleveland, OH

      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at BDO USA full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The work is okay and can be challenging.

      Cons

      The culture in Solon is awful. The Partner and Director group are unprofessional (yell at each other in the office and at clients). Expectations from senior management is unreasonable (budgets are unrealistic). No one wants to work for this partner group.

      Advice to Management

      Partners and Directors needs to embrace change to BDO or get out.

      I have been working at BDO USA full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Work flexibility, exposure to multiple lines of business and industries, access to resources

      Cons

      Pay is not commensurate with experience. Should not be able to leave to private for a 50-60% increase in salary. Additionally promotions are more based on years of experience rather than performance based.

      Advice to Management

      Pay your employees what they are worth

      Pros

      People on an individual basis are great. Focused industries in the office are enough to give you exposure to various areas of interest, specifically NFP, Gov Con, Healthcare and Public without spreading you too thin in terms of experience. Promotions are commiserate with effort.

      Cons

      The management and the office have lost their way. Culture and Unity- It's been 8 months since the McLean and Bethesda offices merged and each day the atmosphere gets worse. There is a complete "us against them" mentality whenever a controversial issue arises with each of the legacy offices banding together determined to win. It seems that the Top management thinks that this will work itself out in time so they usually...

      Advice to Management

      Look at your core values and recognize that people are no longer first, profits are. Recognize the employee turnover for what it is: a majority of employees leaving because they no longer feel valued and a few people leaving because they're tired of public accounting.
