What’s it like switching from a big 4 to a mid tier (RSM, BDO, GT)? Culture wise, hours wise? Is it more relaxed or more stressed at a mid tier?
BDO announced record breaking revenue increase this week. We got pay cuts, no bonuses and i got my senior promotion delayed with a 3% max raise when they go in affect. Best firm ever 😍
Have any of the big 4 or Grant announced pay cuts? BDO just did. Just want to understand if they are the only ones who have done this.
Need advice. I may have a chance to land either at BDO or Deloitte. Comp aside, which firm do you think is a better place to be? How do they differ in terms of hours, how they treat employees and ex…
Anybody make a switch from a big four to a smaller firm like RSM, BDO, or GT? What were the biggest pros/cons?
I left BDO (was there 2 yrs)about 8 months ago for a small firm. I do not like it at all. I don’t have my CPA, yet. Should I move on or stick it out? I’m worried about being a job hopper.
Just got a message from a BDO recruiter asking if I was interested in "growing opportunities." Sure, I'll leave EY and join you guys and take an immediate pay cut.
What’s the CPA bonus at PA firms look like? Does Grant Thornton give a CPA bonus? What about BDO & RSM? I know the Big 4s do. How much does each give?
I still laugh at the possible acronym if BDO and RSM ever merge. That issue alone may prevent it. 😂
Would you leave KPMG for BDO right now, given the current situation? Would be leaving for senior title. Heard BDO had pay cuts recently? Can anyone confirm?

BDO recruiter reached out for an audit senior position in the DC area. Recommended or not? And why? Insights appreciated!!
Does RSM / BDO / GT have trade monitoring like the Big 4 do? Thinking about making a switch but want to go to a place where trade monitoring / auto importing isn’t mandatory.
I left PwC and regret it. Now I have an offer from BDO for $10k above what I was making at PwC. Should I take it? Boomerang back? Go to another big 4? Just a bit lost.
Has anyone transitioned from Mid-tier to B4 or the other way around? What are the major differences between B4 and mid-tier? Really am not happy at BDO but am not sure if B4 would really be better.
International tax manager salaries at BDO - are they comparable to Big 4? (Specifically looking at high CoL cities like New York, for JD/LLMs). Big 4 seems to be $150-200k starting M1.
