    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BDO USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smaller firm that allows for more exposure at the earlier stages of employment.

    Cons

    BDO is rapidly growing and have failed to realize that staff retention is important. The focus is evidently on hiring then comes the lack of supervision, poor training, and unprofessional culture.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and consider the staff who have been there and want to grow with the firm. Enough of the automatic promotions for some levels and place emphasis on development. Only then can you assess performance and attend to the need of staff.
