Challenging position
Administrative Assistant - Tax (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: busy, fast-paced environment
Cons: many managers were "stuck in the past" and didn't like to learn new things
A typical day at work involved typing engagement letters for tax returns and business proposals to generate new revenue for the firm, mailing returns to clients via Fed Ex, working with Go File Room system to ensure all returns were filed in a timely manner, and interacting with various levels of management.

The most enjoyable part of the job was learning – more... new things and training was always available in order to do the best possible job for your clients. – less

Good place to get a lot of audit and tax experience for a new graduate. International firm but local offices focus on mid to large companies so junior accounting staff are exposed to a variety of audit and tax issues.

Assurance Associate (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJuly 18, 2013
Pros: learning how to audit financial statements
Cons: long hours and uncomfortable physical work environment (sometimes)
Most of what I learned from accounting was from my time as an auditor with BDO.

Teamwork was a big part of all the audit teams, working under stressful deadlines, and working with clients. This job was an amazing learning experience and was a great first step in the financial world

If I can start over, I would never come work here!
Tax Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 3, 2012
The work hours is very long, a lot of time including weekend. People I worked with was great but the management was bad, no communication between all levels. You don't learn much from your superior. They do mico management on all staff everyday and the work distribution between staffs are very uneven. Some people might have all the chargeable hours – more... and some may have nothing to do. Not much of cultural environment within the company. The managers and partners won't appreciate you even if you do extra work then other people. Even if you are the only one help out when everyone else don't wanna help at all. There is no group spirit because they know no one will appreciate your hard works! – less

Anonymoustwo – July 2, 2013

The firm is poorly managed by regional operations leadership. Regional operations leadership cares more about the dollar than their employees and what attributes their employees contribute. They provide no training to the office managers/administrators nor do they provide any guiadance on the firm's policies because they don't know themselves. They throw the managers out to the wolves to fend for themselves. It's a sink or swim atomosphere with no support at all from operations leadership. They don't care at all about office managers/administrators and provide no help at all when it's needed. They are not accountable for anything and place blame on others. They treat the office managers/administrators very poorly and set you up to fail. It's a real shame the CEO isn't aware of how bad regional leadership is.
