    Terrible experience

    Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    Prosgood benefits, chance to meet and work with many smart people

    ConsAwful compensation, awful hours. The so called "life work balance" is non existent. Deloitte has one and one goal only: make money. Politics and favoritisms reign, and many PPDs are just useless. Very old style of doing business - from associate to senior managers, you are reminded every day on how replaceable you are and how deloitte is doing you a favor to give you a job. All this while you're on the road for 50-60 hrs per week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAvoid to hire PPDs that don't have consulting experience. Value and appreciate your employees instead of seeing them as a cost.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its ok. Company works you to death. The expectations are realistic however managers are not people oriented at all.

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood exposure to potential employers. I feel that auditors are pigeonholed however the contacts are great, and I can't wait to exploit exit opportunities

    ConsLong hours and terrible managers. The firm is moving in the right direction. I just feel like long term auditing is a tough gig

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more supportive of senior managers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Company

    Audit Senior (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe company has the following things going for it:
    Prestigious
    Great People
    Good Benefits
    Excellent Learning Opportunities
    Defined Career Paths

    ConsThe main cons for this company are as follows:
    Long Hours
    Lacks Flexibility
    Pay is not as great as in industry work

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work on making the job more flexible as working remotely and adding flexibility to scheduling should be easy in the information age. There is also room for increasing pay especially for top performers as there doesn't appear to be much differentiation between average employees and above average employees.
