BDO or KPMG??!! Watch
I have been offered a position at both BDO and KPMG and was wondering which everyone would choose? i felt that there was a nicer atmosphere at BDO and its a much bigger office where I live, but obviously KPMG is big four so I dont know what to do! Help!
KPMG is better. It's a bigger firm and will have more opportunities for you in your career.
You may get better pay and a bit better career prospects at KPMG but you need to be able to enjoy where you work - it isn't all about money
Plus if the KPMG office is smaller than the BDO one you are unlikely to be working on KPMG's top FTSE clients anyway in that city
If you pass all the exams first time and work hard to build up your skills you will have just as good a career as someone who went to KPMG
I'm not that ambitious and I wish I'd not decided to go with a big 4 firm. I want to qualify as I'm interested in the subject matter, but I'm not bothered about being an FD anywhere.
Big 4 firms are LOTS of work. I want to go home at 6
Really can't see it making that much difference if you go to 5th instead of 1st-4th.
