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

    Pros

    They try to build camaraderie between coworkers and I've met many wonderful people Definitely able to advance within the office Many industries available to be worked on, depending on the office you're in

    Cons

    Busy season hours can be a real drag Pay could be better High turnover is real and will have an effect on your workload High, reliable performers often end up having to work more than others and there doesn't seem to be a ton of recourse for slacking off

    Advice to Management

    Work better at retaining who you have. It's easier to keep what you have than keep having to retrain and restart with a bunch of newbies and castoffs from other firms. Increase pay a little. Don't boast to everybody about record bumps in revenue and then give people only a 4-6% bump when they get promoted. That's why everybody leaves for the greener grass of industry. It's actually greener and with less hours!

    Pros

    Pros - good office culture - partner and manager mentors - flexibility - opportunities to work on more complex areas early on in career

    Cons

    More in office trainings over complex areas to give more support to seniors. Promote more within the office, instead of bringing in new people for the positions.
