      I worked at BDO full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Competitive pay. New and up to date tech. Walkable distance to subway and GO Station.

      Cons

      Too much micromanaging. Management plays favourites. Those people get away with almost anything, do little to no work and take all of the credit and management knowingly does nothing about it. Super tight deadlines and blackout periods when you cannot take time off.
