    I have been working at BDO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    I worked at BDO full-time

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn a lot

    Cons

    Long working hours you never get back and whats worse is they're expected from staff. Benefits are no more than bike scheme and tax saver etc. Salary is less than industry standard. Floors are crammed with staff desks. Flexibility is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting a good spin on the employee satisfaction survey and read the facts. HR director and managing partner just focus on adding fresh fruit to a tiny canteen and what was done previous years ago rather than actually tackling the satisfaction of employees who are valid in their suggested and quite basic changes.
