    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at BDO for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very much an all round training firm with exposure to audit and advisory alike. A range of experience that arguably would not be gained in a big 4 setting.

    Cons

    Greater chance for progression following passing of exams would be appreciated but it does have a strong training culture which naturally leads to qualified staff moving on
