Intern Reviews

  • “The firm culture is amazing. Everyone, including principals, is so kind, helpful, and approachable. I’m required to work 40 hours, which I find completely manageable.”
  • “No two days were the same, they had me working on a wide range of projects and exposed me to many practices. There were some dull periods with not a lot of work, but from what I've heard, that is common with most internships. Everyone understood I was an intern and new to the workforce and were very nice and helpful with explaining the process of whatever project I was assigned to.”
  • “Everyone was very friendly and made me feel like a family. They were very understanding about family life and worked with me when I needed time off. The company also made the environment fun and did activities with us to show their appreciation.”
  • “The firm culture and overall environment were great, one of my favorite parts about the firm.”

Getting Hired Here

  • “The interview process was very informal, in a good way. It was not a sit-down interview with a bunch of questions, but more so getting to know a few different people at the company and a chance to ask them questions about their positions and the company culture. It felt like more of me interviewing them than me being interviewed, which I think was very beneficial.”
  • “I was interviewed by three people, and they all went smoothly. I enjoyed the interviewing process, even though I was nervous. It felt like having a natural conversation.”
  • “I didn’t have to interview for my second BDO internship, but the interview for my first internship was very pleasant and conversational. They asked questions regarding the groups I was involved with in college and how the skills I learned from them could benefit BDO. This invited me to elaborate on my leadership and technical knowledge, as well as my viability as a well-rounded employee.”
  • “Excellent interview process. Thorough, but only two rounds. In the second round, I spent the entire time talking with the senior manager and principal.”
