Not just rewards. Total rewards.
At BDO, our benefits begin – but do not end – with competitive financial compensation for our employees. Our rewards extend to a variety of opportunities for enrichment that allow you to grow both professionally and personally.
Our wide range of benefits, coupled with the flexibility to customize them to individual needs, are among the reasons BDO has been honored with many workplace awards, including Working Mother 100 Best Companies and more than 30 local When Work Works Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility.
Compensation and health-related insurance
BDO's compensation packages are highly competitive, and include excellent benefits: medical, pharmacy, dental, vision, wellness, pretax transportation, 401k matching, and a wide range of employee discounts (travel, cell phone, computers, and more) and referral bonuses. Compensation may also include merit increases as well as opportunities for year-end and discretionary bonuses that acknowledge exemplary performance, contributions, and excellence in our core competencies.
In addition to a wide range of mentoring, training, and professional development offerings, BDO also provides generous and flexible paid time off programs, granting paid leave for a variety of reasons, including vacation, illness, and parental leave. BDO also grants professionals personal leaves of absence for both medical or general reasons, such as world travel or the pursuit of higher education.
As a BDO professional, you’ll work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment, helping to drive BDO’s already rapid growth as we continue to add clients and open new offices across the country. And as a member of the world’s fifth largest accounting and consulting organization, you’ll deliver the accounting industry’s highest level of service to a dynamic and wide-ranging client-base, across virtually all industries.
You, individually, will grow as well. You’ll work in a supportive office, with smaller client service teams and an excellent partner-to-staff ratio. And you’ll benefit from a culture that places a high priority on mentorship, professional development, and work-life flexibility. At BDO, we are dedicated to our people, and to helping them succeed both personally and professionally, as they advance throughout their careers.
More than just professional success.
BDO’s Core Purpose is helping people thrive, every day. And that doesn’t just mean our clients. We strive to help everyone at BDO thrive both in and out of the office – to grow as professionals, while meeting their commitments to their families, communities, and personal lives as a whole.
To that end, BDO maintains a number of programs and initiatives to support our people, both in and out of the office.
Workplace flexibility is more than just a benefit. In today’s 24/7 global work reality, it’s essential. From the day-to-day flexibility to attend a child’s soccer game, to a formal arrangement to telecommute long-term, BDO Flex allows our people to adjust where, when, or how much they work – even the types of work they do. Everyone has unique needs, responsibilities, and interests, and so we encourage our people to find a mutually beneficial mix of workplace commitment and personal flexibility.

BDO Leadership Institute

The team is great, supportive and everyone worked together. Good people, great team.
There was never enough time to properly plan for the upcoming project/work/assignments (fly by the seat of your pants). The budgets were always to small so often times the work was rushed and there wasn't enough time to properly update workpapers at the end of the project. The feedback during the coaching process/mentoring wasn't blunt or forward enough.
