    Pros

    Professionals are just that - very professional and highly specialized.

    Deloitte is a conglomeration of many companies and often times competes with itself.

    Work more towards overall value to clients instead of individual P&Ls.

    Pros

    Excellent group of well educated, capable and motivated professionals. Great professional development, especially for junior staff. Many opportunities to develop and demonstrate ability to lead. Involved in interesting and meaningful assignments. Good comp and benefits.

    Cons

    Very challenging to find a good work-life balance. Firm values themselves far more than they value their clients success. Staff required to get involved in far too many non-client related efforts. Definition of individual and professional success changes within reporting periods. Success is too often based more on relationships than actual value of contributions. Lack of trust within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid the strong tendency to micro and over manage. Select competent leaders to take responsibility over projects and initiatives and allow them the flexibility to lead them, without constant oversight and fine tuning. Allow professionals to take controlled risks and fail - helping them to learn and grow from the experience.

    Former Employee - Audit Manager in Cincinnati, OH
    Former Employee - Audit Manager in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work right out of college. I stayed for six years and don't regret the time spent (nor, I should add, do I regret leaving). Excellent resume-builder, plus you get an opportunity to make an immediate impact in a meritocratic, team-oriented environment. Benefits are good; don't let anybody keep you from using all of those PTO weeks. I worked with many extremely bright people, and I would say the number of people I encountered with whom I had difficulty working I could count on one hand. The opportunity to manage people so early on in your career is something I think some people who start at D&T might take for granted.. it is hugely helpful when you start looking for opportunities elsewhere. You get so many great opportunities for development here.

    Cons

    Depending on the office and depending on the client, hours can be pretty bad. There were two primary factors that made me decide against trying for partner and led to me deciding to leave: 1) I saw that the "carrot" in making partner was largely monetary; you never really get a break from the tough hours and extreme demands of clients. If anything, the partners' work-life balance seemed worse than the staffers. And 2) the ridiculous demands and changing-with-the-wind whims of the PCAOB made me feel like I ended up doing more and more CYA work that was pointless and not helpful to the actual audit. I don't really blame D&T for this- they don't have a choice. But the over regulation by the PCAOB (and, to a lesser extent, the SEC) made it increasingly difficult for me to take personal pride in my work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. My experience- especially working in the Cincinnati office- was extremely positive and I have the utmost respect for the people I worked with.

    Very good working environment. It is a place that can push you to move forward.

    Cons

    Too busy in busy season. Work work work. You could never finish it on time. Not to mention work life balance.
