I can refer you to PwC international tax. Likely specific to the office, but I'd expect BDO would be mostly provision calcs and compliance

85% of my interactions with the ITS group is for consulting work. That being said, September and October they are heavy into reviewing 5471s and GILTI calcs. I also only really deal with senior managers and up in the ITS group so if you're talking about associates, yeah I think 98% of their time is compliance but that's just a guess.

I talked with bdo sf a while back and the recruiter was straight up with me and said that the role would be almost all compliance

It’s 90%+ compliance. That makes it a joke to call the group “ITS”

I worked at BDO ITS. I actually enjoyed it. My manager was let go during my time so I worked with the director mostly (I had a senior but he was too weird for me). I did more consulting than compliance. A lot of re-structuring for multinational clients who had been at smaller firms.
