    Pros

    Deloitte provides great Exposure with the various client assignments you get
    Its a good Resume booster
    Offers Comparable compensation
    They pay for certifications

    Cons

    Work life balance may get challenging but it sometimes falls back on you on how to manage it
    Benefits are comparable but you take a slight hit for the perception that comes with working at Deloitte and job prospects in the future
    You may get tagged to a market offering that you are not interested in and probably loose some traction in your career progress by leaving it for what you like to do - Again, that's something that could be a personal choice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try as much as possible to rotate people to areas outside of their core market offering to enable them to continuously grow.

    They work with you to accommodate as best they can, but work life balance, especially during busy season is pretty bad.

    Pros

    Great PTO package, good benefits, good pay.

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

    Pros

    The best part about working at Deloitte in Tax is the training and education provided to new hires. They take the time to make sure you learn about the rules and regulations, although sometimes it can be hectic to manage training and the engagements you are on. Another great part is the culture. Most people are really friendly and outgoing and there are lots of young people that you can become friends with. The company also tends to be pretty flexible with personal time needed from what I have seen. They value smart people and if you prove your self you will be in demand.

    Cons

    The work life balance really depends on the tax group you join in and the clients you get on. Of course there will always be times when you will be working long hours and days when you get to take half the day off and go to happy hour with coworkers. However, you may get on a client that has so much work that needs to be done that you will be consistently working until late into the evening and/or weekends for months on end. Also, if you get on clients that have different due dates you may be having more than one busy season. For the number of hours you are working the pay is pretty low and tends to be pretty standardized.

    Former Employee - Tax Intern in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Tax Intern in Houston, TX

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Great place to gain your 1st real experience as an intern
    -Great networking opportunities (events or individuals)
    -Great pay for interns
    -Great training facility for the company (DU)

    Cons

    -You do not get as much feedback, so you do not really know what area to improve on
    -Not a lot of fun activities to showcase the solid work-life balance the company possess
    -No intern rotation within the different areas of tax. Doing the same thing became monotonous and boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Give lower management more attention so that they will grow to one day help other (Lift as you climb)

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

    Pros

    Firm reputation, training, company values, and exposure to high caliber clients are all positive reasons to join this firm. The hours can be a little long during busy season but the experience is worth it!

    Cons

    This environment may seem somewhat restrictive to those who want to run their own business. If you don't mind the regimented environment and the years to achieve your goal of becoming a partner it is a great place to build a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Great firm for gaining experience and contacts.
