❤️ I’ve been with a big 4 and with BDO. All firms have their issues and all staff have their criticisms. but BDO is a firm that I feel like is small enough where leadership listens to concerns but is big enough to have the resources to do something about it

like

RSM moving toward a larger firm feel so more bureaucracy compared to years ago. Definitely not a Big4 feel but it is gravitating toward that direction. Probably similar to KPMG.

Based on Revenue the list is #5BDO, #6 RSM and #7 Grant Thornton. Only reason why BDO is higher is because acquisition. Based on Prestige (not like it matters because they are not B4) #5GT #6BDO #7RSM.

I was talking overall but to answer PO question. It really depends in your location.

In before someone at KPMG comments about the list and then someone replies to that comment saying “isn’t KPMG a tier 2 firm?”
