    Pros

    Great people and teams, city centre location, good study leave, free breakfast and fruit

    Client satisfaction over employees all the time. Understaffing, so existing people can feel very stretched and stressed.

    Better planning and organisation would help take pressure off lower level staff- AMs, seniors and trainees

    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    - A lot of knowledge and experience in different industry you can gain - Good teamwork and bonding (if you are lucky to join a great team) - A stepping stone to jump commercial

    Cons

    - Company bond of 1.5 years - Laptop bond of 3 years, with mark up very high price - Slim bonus, the cut off date (Sep) and payoff date (Mar next year) are unfair - Management won't care about your heavy work load, keep delegating works and all must be met the deadline - Appraisal system is fail and unfair

    Advice to Management

    Listening to employees. There are a lot of resignees giving you the true and honest opinion.
