Here’s Your Open Thread for BDO Compensation Discussions (2014)

Well, folks, it appears BDO pulled a fast one on us and changed up the game by coming out with compensation way ahead of schedule (for BDO, anyway). Numbers have been known to come out as late as September in the past, which meant we totally ignored this person who wrote us at the end of July:

BDO compensation discussions are going on now…

Actually, "ignored" isn't the right word. Colin said "I'm not sure about that BDO email" and I was like "oh yeah?" and he was like "it seems early for them" and then we both forgot about it after I linked to a hilarious Life at Deloitte tweet that we later mocked.

We were politely reminded today by a different tipster that we've all but forgotten about BDO, which must happen to BDO a lot:

Hey there. Just wondering – there are comp discussions for Baker Tilly and Crowe Horwath. How about BDO?

We hear raises and promotions were, in fact, out in July per our original tipster who got left at the wayside for an easy dig at Life at Deloitte (sorry, bro). Shame on us for not doing our due diligence and creating this thread sooner but again, BDO is probably used to the diss.

Consider this us making up for that slight effective immediately. You know what to do from here.
