    I have been working at BDO USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Cons - compensation - office politics

    Advice to Management

    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.

    I have been working at BDO USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice place to start your career. People are friendly to work with. Upper management in the office is willing to listen to new ideas. Lots of interesting clients, public and private. Exposed to vast array of industries, not pigenholed into one area. Dual monitor screens are nice. Lots of free snacks and drinks. Compensation is decent.

    Cons

    Working hours, can be busy a lot. As a result turnover is sort of high (but I guess it's normal for the industry). Training is not the best compared to other firms. IT can be a hassle to deal with, and the computers are not that great. Benefits are sort of ok...I guess.

    Advice to Management

    Spared out the work more. Some people are getting overloaded to the point of burnout while others are cruising along working the minimum.

    I have been working at BDO USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Client base and hands-on learning from some of the most knowledgeable people is GREAT. You really will learn some phenomenal public accounting information from great seasoned staff.

    Cons

    You are treated like a servant by some staff. Your intelligence will always be questioned because they don't believe you are as talented as you are. They will not communicate with you, and you will not be trained properly. The on-boarding process is a nightmare. When you mention your concerns to your supervisor, the entire staff knows about them. They lack professionalism and act in a retaliatory manner to you if you...

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your support staff and encourage the associates to include the whole staff.

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

    Pros

    Great place to learn basic tax prep, lots of free meals, friendly environment

    Cons

    No clear plan for advancement, Restricted from transferring to practice, it appeared the brown nosing and working "off the clock" were the only methods of moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your "A" players, Develop an advancement path, Recognize Talent & Promote accordingly, generate enough work to keep folks busy, If your staff develops the skills then allow them to transfer to practice. BDO appears to be an excellent company outside of the Business Service Center.
