It really depends of the clients you are on. My friend is thinking about switching from BDO to PwC actually. She mentioned she's working as much as a big 4 if not more.

This is a joke. It all depends on your market team. OP likely had a shitty experience at PwC. I know for a fact that the hours, experience and pay are not better at BDO. If by better OP means getting paid $5K less for same positions and working on shittier clients with a busy season that goes through April, then I guess they would be correct.

We are also hiring, in case anyone's interested. Come to EY where we are building a better working world. Where the hours are fair, the salaries are awesome, and the women are sexy.

Please describe the culture?

What market you in BDO?

NYC

Elaborate on culture what office ?

BDO really depends on the market/office. I switched from BDO to big 4 and don't regret it. The pay is not equal to big 4 pay as that was one of my reasons for jumping ship. And same with what PwC2 said - I was working more there than I am at big 4. The culture may have been better when I was an intern but it went downhill over two years and wasn't what it was. So it definitely depends on the office for BDO, so it's tough to generalize saying it's better culture, pay and hours for the entire firm.

OP if you don't mind, can you share your salary and level? Only real way to compare the pay across the two firms.

3rd year senior

What salary and LoS?

No this is- let's split referral trolling
