Ask what people who know know?

Drama right now about the pto policy... They are reducing our max accrued hours by a lot. In advisory, id ask who you will be working with and where... They are spread all over the country from what I can tell. So you might not have a team in your office per se. Ask about working from home, travel, and flexibility to see if you like the answers. I think most partners at bdo are open, but might just be my region. I always ask about the interviewer's career path. Gives you insight into how they got there and why they are still in public accounting!

Ask about how they go about cross selling and if they could change one thing to improve the way THEY need to operate in order to win more work what would it be
