As an employee of the firm, you will live true to our Core Values of people first, being exceptional every day in every way, embracing change, feeling empowered through knowledge and choosing accountability. Our Core Values are the standards by which we conduct ourselves day in and day out, both internally and externally.

Our Specialized Tax Services ("STS") Business Incentives Group ("BIG") business has doubled in the last three years and tripled in the last six. STS BIG Associates have been key to our success, and they are central to our plans to continue as one of BDO's premiere national consulting practices.

As an STS BIG Associate, you will help achieve BDO's core purpose-helping people thrive every day-by helping companies and individuals identify and claim government incentives designed to promote innovation and economic and job growth in the U.S. Like the R&D Tax Credit.

STS BIG's short-term mission is to help our clients as efficiently and effectively as possible identify, document, and support on examination by tax authorities all of the R&D-related incentives to which they are legally entitled. Our longer term goal is to develop an understanding of them as people and of all aspects of their business so that we are well positioned as their trusted advisors, as professionals who understand both their business operations and business drivers as well as how BDO can help them realize their goals.

In pursuing this mission, we are also seeking to help our STS BIG Associates become trusted advisors, ensuring they have a clear sense of the importance and responsibilities of such a role, as well as the training and opportunities to fill it.

Toward that end, STS BIG Associates pursue opportunities to enable them to gain and improve their skills in every aspect of professional service, including technical, interpersonal, oral and written communication, project management, practice management, and business development.
