PA to Audit Partner (Former Employee) – Nottingham, Nottinghamshire – 17 January 2018
The environment in the Nottingham office was one of fear and uncertainty. Certain managers behaved in a way where staff were shouted at in front of the whole office, spoken down to and at times made to feel embarrassed due to the vociferous manner in which they were spoken to on a daily basis. I would not recommend this office as a good place to work.

Working in BDO was amazing it was so educational and I found it helped me a lot to further my skills. My overall experience was good, I got to learn how the office environment works and working with different people.
Work Placements & Internship (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 9 August 2017
I took this internship in the Glasgow branch but we were taken for induction to the firm down in London. this gave us a great insight into the culture on a much larger level while working in Glasgow gave me an understanding of the kind of day-to-day tasks involved in accountancy.

Manager (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 30 May 2017
pro- good work life balance, good benefits
con- salary is not very competitive, no bonus so very little incentive to go above and beyond expectations to get rewarded, overall focus on coaching & development program does not compare to big 4 (much worse)
Partner's Secretry (Former Employee) – Bath – 2 March 2017
The work was very interesting, very busy, the Partners were great and the staff also. It was a busy environment and was great to be in contact with clients/contacts. Became more interesting when the Bath Office was closed and the 2 Partners started up their own business taking myself plus 2 other staff. I then became Secretary to the Tax Partner as well.
Senior Assocuate (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 22 February 2017
I joined recently but I would warn anyone considering working here to check and double check their expected job title. I joined to become an assistant manager, only to find out I'm a senior associate. Perhaps a small difference but important to those who need to progress and relied on assurances in interview.
Not to the only assurance that has not turned out to be accurate as staff turnover is much higher than I was lead to believe.
