    Just don't stay too long

    Tax Senior Associate (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsGreat training, high caliber professionals

    ConsCubicals, lock-step path to advancement, must commit 4-6 years before seeing any real responsibility

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease fluidity of advancement opportunities. Reward high performers with promotions and/or more significant bonuses. Get rid of the cubicals. And if you want less turnover, stop paying $50,000 salaries.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good brand name, but probably not the place for long-term career

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    Prosa) Brand name - considered of the Big 4
    b) Opportunity to work on a variety of things
    c) Exposure to top clients

    Consa) Performance reviews are very political. It is much more important to work with the right partners than do a good job
    b) Delivery is poor - there are many great sales people at Deloitte, but many poor delivery people
    c) Learn on your own, Deloitte will put you in many situations and you have to learn on your own because there is little training and the people you work with are poor at delivery
    d) Siloed in their delivery model, so different areas compete against each other for client work

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be truly one firm, the incentives should be changed to support working toghther, instead of regional and service area silos

    Performance management should be more objective and much more transparent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Family comes in second

    Staff Auditor (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsGood training in the accounting world. The ability to fulfill the requirements necessary to be licensed as a CPA. Nice friendly people to work with in the entry level positions

    ConsIncredibly long hours during certain periods of the year. The downside is that you must put the job before family which might be alright for a man (single or married) or a single woman. But for a woman (especially a single parent) with children, there is no consideration given to your personal life. Out of state travel for prolonged periods of time might be expected which is not conductive to a balanced home life. It was not unusual to work 80 hrs/week during the "busy season".

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider requests for non-travel and reasonable working hours.

    Good for some, bad for others.

    Staff Auditor (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsDeloitte and other Big 4 accounting firms provide a good Springboard into other accounting fields after some years of employment at any Big 4. Perhaps the best reason to work here is name recognition. You work here, pass your CPA, become licensed, guide some team members in an audit, and then peform that audit, you gain a lot experience that would take many years to achieve. For this reason, working at Deloitte, or any other B4, is beneificial.

    ConsWork/life balance is a joke during busy season. You really do not have the opportunities that you need to keep yourself happy between the months of January through April. Most weeks you are working 80 hours, but only reporting 65 to keep under budget. And during those 80 hours, it's hard to spend time with friends/families/yourself. If you can sacrifice that much time of your life, then come to work here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication with staff

    Deloitte Consulting..Needs to Create More Value

    Business Technology Analyst (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    Pros5 weeks Paid Time Off plus National Holidays. Depending on project, great opportunity to interface with client executives.

    ConsNo benefit of starting with an advanced degree, M.S. graduates and B.S. undergraduates start at the same level with minimal salary difference. Some Project leadership blatantly disregard work-life balance issues. Organization is very Top-heavy and junior staff is penalized for for reasons that are controlled by senior management. Staff is recognized on number of hours billed, and not project performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize and provide distinct opportunities for staff that might be underutilized but have exceeding expectations performance on client projects. Increase focus on retention and development of existing staff versus experienced hires and acquisitions.
