Actively applying for new experienced audit Associate positions at Mid-sized public firms. Currently working in the Big 4 and covid has really shown the firm’s true colors—they don’t give a sh*t about the employees. Been looking at CBIZ and Marcum.. any other suggestions? Located in Boston/Providence area. Thanks 🙏🏼

Why not BDO?

BDO handled the Covid situation terribly. Multiple people have put in their notice from my office and more soon to follow. I would not suggest wasting your time with BDO
