    There's no place like Home!

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThis company is very different as it has it's own unique culture. There is a lot of diversity here within the firm and flex programs that allows it's employees to pursue personal goals (as becoming a parent and working flexible hours as well as professional goals which allows employees the opportunity to study for CPA exams and other courses while still working. A specific personality type will appreciate working for this firm...one that has a lot of enthusiasm, determination and drive. Three words that describes the culture here: vibrant, diverse, and enthusiastic.

    ConsEmployees here tend to work too many hours which takes time away from personal life activities. Also, the potential for growth within this firm is limited. If you are not a professional who has gone to school for accounting, there is no ladder of success to climb, even with a degree (I am specifically referring to administrative roles as executive or administrative assistant. I have received a bachelor and master's degree while working at this company and I have yet to have found something that can help develop my career. Not many opportunities are given to those who have come from an administrative background which I feel is disheartening.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a "step up" plan for those in administrative positions who have taken the time to go back to school for degrees(s) in order to enhance career.

    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.

    Overall your experience will depend on the network you develop

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    Prosgreat people and some projects are exciting and interesting work

    ConsDepending on client need so projects can feel more like staff aug work and true consulting projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeparate the staff aug work from the consulting work. Be more open with the compensation. The same YE reviews will equal different raises. More information about bands needs to be in place so one knows what they can expect to make at each career level. There is little to no transparency within the firm regarding what you can really expect to make.

    What is leaving at 5pm called at Deloitte? Half day!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThere is always something to do, and usually about 5 things to do at once; you are never borerd. The people are great and if you ever get a chance to go to Deloitte University, take it. it is definitely a unique experience.

    ConsThey've cut too deep on the personnel and expect a little too much from their employees without additional help or compensation. Senior staff are expected to do the work and handle the resonsibilities of what should be from a manager or low senior manager.

    Great people, high profile projects, extensive travel, high expectations

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGreat Projects, mostly good people, all the resources of a big company

    ConsWork/Life balance is slanted towards work
    Travel schedule makes a home life near impossible
    Mentorship and personal development is inconsistent at best -- if it's not what's best for the firm, it won't happen, no matter your level of interest

    Advice to Senior ManagementMentor your staff and try to support their career rather than just the needs of the project

    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

    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.
