    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Friendly culture, helped me get my CPA license, and gained great work experience. I got to do a TON in my first two years. Travel was reasonable. I know traveling a lot seems like a great thing, but in public accounting, trust me its not. I never had to travel too much and looking back, I really appreciated that.

    Cons

    Its public accounting and that's not something that can be fixed. The hours are long and flexibility just isn't possible. However, the experience you get by putting yourself through those long hours and being thrown in the deep end is invaluable. I didn't care for the work itself, but I learned a lot about myself and as I said was very well prepared for the next step in my career.
