I've heard of some shit going down in other offices too. I feel like you should stay. They just fired an OMP in Houston due to the shit office culture he was creating. I think they are really trying to take it seriously to make things better. I would think you would have the ear of those who matter being a sr. Director. My office culture was amazing. It's still good, just really miss our old OMP.

👆🏼What office are you in? I've heard the similar stories like your for other offices. The Miami office is exactly as the OP described it. You come in and try to foster change and they just wear you down. Eventually people leave after 2-3 years and the cycle continues. I can tell you that the Managers/Senior Managers are always fighting an uphill battle to make things better. Unfortunately, the RMP has a chokehold on our office and the OMP follows in the footsteps of the RMP who was the old OMP. Change which was expected when the new OMP took the role was a dream and not one person in our office or region expect it to change any time soon --- even though our turnover is the highest in the region, merit increases and bonuses are based on hours charged and the playing of favorites, and leadership is nonexistent. In short, everyone that comes into our office is sold a lie --- endless opportunities, great culture, flexibility, less work than BIG 4, etc. Anyways, I can understand where the OP is coming from.

Not a troll, nor midlife crisis. Ever sat in a meeting, listened to a partner throw a manager under bus, no truth to what they said, looked around at rest of mgmt group and said to yourself last straw I am done. This is a circus but these are not my monkeys. The worst you perform the better you are rewarded in this office. Great performance is not recognized by majority of partners. I have worked in large local, Big 4 and BDO. I am going back Big Four. Yes I have offers to. Not putting money into being a partner at this firm. No I am not 55 or being forced out. All firms have issues and problems. But damn partners who flat out not tell the truth like this one cannot trust and I don't want to work for that anymore.

I stayed here this long for flexibility. I can find somewhere else. Old school partner work 80 hours be proud of that per week. Talks about 80s and old days e.g. Sleeping under desk. What planet is this partner living on? World has changed. Move out time for new group of partners to take over and change old views. Oh by the way promoting more than one female in the office might be helpful as well.

Globally BDO is trying to make strides but so many offices have old and stubborn partners who refuse to change. I'm at National now but at least 50% of the offices I've experienced should be cut off like gangrene toes.

Maybe we should slow down with the expansion, get the culture right, then add a culture focus to our continued growth? Don't get me wrong, we're good. I just think we can be better.

Struggling to evaluate an offer and would like some help. currently make ~150/8/10ish base/bonus/RSU, ~170ish all in excluding benefits. I would be transferring to a startup with a base of 180k with equity. The benefits at my current job amount to maybe a few k more than at the startup. So, overall my cash compensation amounts to roughly the same or a slight increase. The potential upside is the equity. Is that small comp increase enough to warrant leaving a big company, even with equity?
