Layoff Watch ’20: BDO USA Waved Goodbye to Some Folks In Advisory

This came in through the tipline about an hour or so ago:

BDO Advisory US had a RIF yesterday… about 3% of workforce… low performers but also told it was due to economic conditions… guess the comp reduction didn’t “keep our family together.”

So the email I got yesterday from a person saying (s)he was let go without warning from BDO USA due to the COVID-19 pandemic makes a whole lot more sense now.
