    Deloitte has been very inclusive to my needs as a new mother.

    Compensation for Associates is less than consulting counterparts. There is no pay adjustment after completing MBA programs or certifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust pay based on fair market value.

    Challenging, rewarding work but poor work/life balance

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will never be bored in Deloitte. Work is always intellectually challenging and learning opportunities abound. For those that are committed, there is a clear career path and regular checkpoints to evaluate how you are tracking. Huge financial upside for those that achieve partner status.

    Cons

    Deloitte offers few options for creating a good work/life balance. Bonus structure is gray and not committed in writing. It is possible to exceed all goals yet not receive 100% of bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So much attention is placed on setting goals and measuring performance against them. This is cumbersome, but productive. Rewards should be just as clearly defined to match. It is totally unacceptable to exceed all goals and not receive 100% of variable.

    Audit - Good place to begin career

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Audit Assistant in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Audit Assistant in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Good training
    - Large variety of exposure VERY early in your career (company types, industries, business models)
    - Brand name will get you calls later on

    Cons

    - Work is not that interesting to many people
    - Tight budgets, increased workloads due to regulation
    - Too much of a "Get it done" attitude from project managers who do not provide resources when things get challenging
    - Minimal rewards/comp for top performers (especially early in career), ruins motivation to be the best when one cannot see a relationship between effort and rewards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Audit is a tough business. Demand better fees from clients and be willing to walk away. Quality can suffer along with talent development.

    Great entry level public accounting job

    Former Employee - Senior Auditor in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Senior Auditor in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Public accounting as an entry level job, was a crash course in accounting that made me much more technically proficient than my counterparts post-Big 4; Deloitte, lived up to that promise of providing learning career & industry learning through assignments and firm resources. Reputation wise, Deloitte seemed to be more technical and performance focused than the other Big 4's (which could be a pro or a con).

    Cons

    The hours; which they don't lie to you about up-front. I unfortunately ended up getting a string of unlucky breaks and my main client ended up going through a series re-statements which resulted in an almost a year-long busy season. Although this is not the norm, traditional Big 4 busy seasons do seem to have creeped in duration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monitor the fatigue of your teams. Although there are deadlines, a rested employee is a more productive employee.

    Great firm needs more focus on the people

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The firm's overall total rewards package is outstanding. The people are great and you can learn a lot and grow. The firm invests in their top talent and provides wonderful training opportunities. Deloitte University is an amazing experience!

    Cons

    The culture of the firm seems to be shifting to focus more on the bottom line vs the people. Deloitte is a people business and in order to attract and retain their best talent they need to focus more on their people. The firm right now feels huge and it's hard to identify with the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on people and culture. Give the local offices more control to make the firm feel smaller.

    A successful company that is driven to provide value

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Manager in Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Deloitte pays well. Were I to take a job locally, I'd likely receive about 30-40% less. Deloitte's health package is first class and they give you more opportunities to train than you can absorb. Deloitte is huge, but if you navigate around it you'll find truly bright and visionary people. In my four years at Deloitte, I've met a great number of people that I truly respect--people whose input I truly value.

    Cons

    I came into Deloitte with eyes open. I knew what consulting travel was like. At Deloitte, they call the schedule a 5-4-3. That means that you're working (minimum) five days a week, four days on the road and three nights in a hotel. Basically, you get up at 5 a.m. on Mondays and get home Thursday around 8p. Friday's (most of the time) you're in your local office. And beyond the client work, there are firm activities to develop new business, support the firm or make a splash in the industry. The combined weight of travel plus firm activities can suffocating at times. Trying to eke out a sane family life at Deloitte is not always easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How can I complain about an organization that has treated me so well? You've paid my bills, provided excellent health care coverage for may family and given me a great salary. I may not retire at Deloitte (it's a very demanding place to work) but I refuse to badmouth it. I've done my part, and they've done theirs. Long live the big green dot!
