Great place to work
Experienced Tax Analyst (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMay 21, 2019
BDO was a great place to work. The management as a whole was great. They truly care about their employees Public accounting has some rough hours, but the leader here did everything possible to help make everyone's lives easier. If they thought you'd be worked too hard, they'd rather take the work off you and give it to someone else, if not to another office. The grass isn't always greener on the other side. It's greener where it's taken care of, and the BDO Memphis office takes care of it.

Tax Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Worthington, OHApril 22, 2019
Loved co workers and team building, did mot like management decision making at times. Nice perks to the job start up project, a learning curve was in place, but felt the company could have been more transparent in personal matters

Great Experience to Start
Business Services and Outsourcing Associate (Current Employee) –  San Juan, PRApril 21, 2019
The company is a good place to start cause you learn about PR Taxes law and will see client you won't be able to work anywhere else. The tax season is a stressful time and will work overtime without pay. The rest of the year is relax.

Internship
Tax Intern (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, DEApril 18, 2019
As an intern you do the dirty work, all the things the senior accountants don't want to do. I felt like the management was in a weird position at the time. I also feel like there was not equal opportunities there.

My Time at BDO
EXECUTIVE ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 21, 2019
BDO has actually been one of the best employment positions that I've had. In recent months, the administrative structure has deteriorated, leaving me no choice but to seek another position.
Pros
Comfortable and casual office atmosphere
Cons
Consideration for the administrative staff

BDO is great at creating a great work culture. The work could be strenuous and overbearinig at times, but they do take care of their employees as far as feeding them and giving them enough vacation days to recover.

I liked the culture
Exp. Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMarch 18, 2019
The atmosphere was team focused and everyone was friendly. The leadership drives this culture and is easy to approach. They actually want you to bring concerns to their attention so if something is wrong it can be fixed.
Pros
free snacks and busy season meals

Understaffed
Senior Tax Associate (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMarch 12, 2019
BDO has grown through a lot of acquisitions in South Florida but there are not enough staff or seniors to manage the workflow effectively. Great clients and learning opportunities but not everyone is treated fairly or held to the same expectation. Learning that anywhere you go in public accounting you will have the same issues.

Exposed to many different companies/clients
Strategic Relationship Manager (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 9, 2019
I believe what sets apart BDO from other like firms are that they service every industry, and they let you take on clients in industries that you are particularly passionate about. This type of exposure can also help you get into the industry you are trying to break into.

Security and career growth is low
Manager (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHFebruary 6, 2019
BDO says it offers opportunities and career advancement with a team and people first environment, except to them you are just a productive or not productive number on a spreadsheet. they do not see the value in a person only the dollars they bring in or save them. Very unfortunate!

High Turnover in Tax and Assurance
Associate (Current Employee) –  DetroitJanuary 14, 2019
BDO USA LLP offers a generous benefit package which often holds the employee hostage to a cold work environment. To be successful, belonging to the clique is necessary. Leadership is focused on maximizing profits by under-bidding competition then utilizing bare minimum staffing ratios. Interns are sometimes managing projects. You will work 50-55 hour weeks all summer long. Busy season easily adds 20 hours per week in both departments. If this is for you, please apply. Positions are always open.
Pros
excellent benefits package, covered parking, onsite gym free to building tenants
Cons
believes free meals/reg happy hours is cure for low morale
