This isn't my job, this is a mutual investment.

Recruting Lead (Current Employee)
Costa Mesa, CA

-Leadership seems interested in what you have to say.
-The people make this place.

ConsExpectations are always high so you need to be on your A game at all times. Not necessarily a bad thing.

A great place for partners and directors but not a place for anyone who has a lesser title

Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Costa Mesa, CA

I have been working at Deloitte LLP full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood benefits such as health subsidy reimbursement. Company matching 401K plan. (However you have to pay for parking (subsidized) which can take a large chunk out of your earnings. Deloitte will soon adopt a plan where they will no longer subsidize parking, placing the burden upon the employee. Partners will still receive subsidized parking.)

ConsManagement treats support staff as if they are expendable. They are overworked, mostly overburdened with petty personal requests and grossly underpaid. For the past two years raises have only been 1%. Further, Deloitte realigned the job titles for internal support staff whereby the salary ranges have been impacted negatively. If you were a manager for instance, you are now a supervisor and your earning potential has been reduced or significantly limited.

The turnover rate at the firm is alarming.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with professionalism and respect and you will get the dedication and loyalty that will make your firm prosper further. Do not look at the contributions of the internal support staff as irrelevant. They are performing the tasks that managers and above do not want to perform. Althought support staff does not generate revenue for the firm directly, they do impact the bottom line by efficiently supporting those who do bring in the revenue.
