How is BDO for FDD? Have an offer from them to start as a senior now, but keep seeing mixed info about quality and culture. I have the option of staying at b4 audit another year until I make senior here and trying for B4 FDD - not sure what the right choice is here.

I haven’t heard good things about BDO tbh

Would this still hold true if the senior title is no longer possible?

I’ve been part of a few different FDD shops and now at BDO due to market preference/geography. At any rate, I would say our deliberate emphasis on quality is an aspect that sets us apart and I see a fair amount of FDD reports from varying providers. Feel free to DM me as there are a fair amount of considerations here, including market/geography.

Despite what people may say about BDO, you’re getting a title bump and getting into the service line you want. Fdd is going to be pretty much the same work wherever you go. You can always hop to another practice.

Agree I have been to different fdd shops and they are all the same with different brand colors
