A typical day at work included going out to the premises of a client as an audit team for medium to large sized clients or as an individual for a small client. Working with the company allowed me to learn the follwoing: How to analyse different areas of the clients financial statements and efficiently prepare a report that alows any individual with basic accounting and audit knowledge to arrive at the same as conclusion as mine. Effective time management to be able to meet deadlines. Perform tasks that take initiative to assist other team members to complete a project. Co-workers were innovative and motivational individuals. Management included individuals that were approachable and always willing to advise the team how to perform the tasks. The hardest part of the job pn occasion included tight deadlines that required over time. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to learn and see how other companies and industries operate. As well as gain understanding of different management styles, and methods for accounting for a transaction.

It was a job in the typical public accounting firm with less support than big 4. Very professional, smart and nice coworkers. Coworkers make life bearable. Culture is good. Always understaffed.
Pros
Experience, culture

Chartered accountancy students are not paid fairly during their articles. Work life balance is very difficult. No proper deadline for work completion.

Corrupt Company negotiating in sketchy and illegal Government Contracts. So much that the CEO is facing Federal Charge of Corruption. Do not work for these people.

Productive day at work, mostly out on clients. I learned how to audit the manufacturing, mining, and logistics industries. Management is very bias when it comes to performance ratings but is easily approachable. The workplace culture is relaxed and warm. Hardest part of the job is adapting to change and travelling.The most enjoyable part of the job is being with fellow trainees whom you can share ideas with and learn from.
Pros
Overtime benefits and travel claim
Cons
Low ratings resulting in low performance bonuses

An amazing place to work. You'll put in the hours expected in a larger public accounting firm but the knowledge you receive and the environment is great. The partners in Austin are open door and will help you whenever. If not for personal issues going on I would have never left. They even tried to help me find an alliance firm or office close to my hometown.

BDO Woodbridge commercial audit falls into the 2 stars category. This is a very bottom line driven group. The budgets and staffing are set at about half of what is normal in other public accounting firm based on my past experience at other firms. This is probably intentional to extract the maximum value from each job for the partners. Great for the partners, not great for the staff. Regardless of your level, you will be constantly" earning your keep", the busier you are, the happier your boss is. I felt like I was chained to my computer for months, weekend work and busy season hours are mandatory for 4 months of the year, 1 month longer than at other firms or even a different office of the same firm. The office functions like a small firm under the BDO name. There isn't any career development and management doesn't care about your wishes and wants, it's all about getting the job done the way they want it done and in the time they want it done while offering little in the way of guidance. You are a tool to them and nothing more.
Pros
It's a paycheck but you need to be a slave. They put on a good facade.

My position at BDO was a great opportunity to learn new skills and perfect old ones. The workplace culture showed a balance between stressful and relaxed, depending on the pertinent deadlines. However, it didn't offer opportunities to grow professionally nor benefits or fair pay.
Pros
8 hours workdaay
Cons
low pay, no benefits, no job advancement oportunities
