    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at BDO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice people, and good exposure

    Cons

    No benefits until management level and above, even after training at the firm Different standards across different teams No work life balance You can not plan to do something in the evenings because there is no guarantee that you will be able to leave on time, and if you do there are dirty looks and comments Even lunches can not be planned because of potential meetings/ work load

    I worked at BDO full-time

    Pros

    Absolutely none. No one should have to work in such a work environment.

    Cons

    The worst management you will ever come across in any firm. Constant mental harassment and treats like salary and allowance deduction, none of the employees are ever given a chance to be heard, zero opportunities for growth as no performance evaluations are done. A joke of a firm and really not worthy of being part of the otherwise great BDO network. I do not expect anyone to blindly believe me. You will get contact details and emails of everyone working currently at BDO Oman, anyone can contact them for confirmation. I just request anyone who wishes to join BDO Oman to kindly think twice as I can guarantee they will regret their decision within a months time like everyone currently working here does. If the situation of the global job market was any better, even the office boy would have long resigned.

    Pros

    Can quickly get promoted if you put in the work. opportunities to work autonomously

    Management particularly partners do not interact much with staff. Since the merger the culture of organisation has changed not for the better unfortunately. No bonus or incentive schemes, private health care is non-existent and pension scheme is not great. Management constantly watch your utilisation.
