    Pros

    Professional environment. The systems in place and resources are extensive. There was a great sense of coordination and communication and sharing of best practices at least among the department.

    Cons

    Scope of position is limited in nature. If you are an Exec Assistant looking for a challenge do not apply. If you are an inexperienced assistant looking to gain skills in a large corporate environment, this is a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be a disconnect between the operations group who hires support for the Partners. Hence the Partners are not invested in the people supporting them. From my experience this resulted in the Partners not relying on their assistants for a higher level of support, since they really didn't have much say in the continuity or duration of their support staff.

    Pros

    Most Partners are great to work for. They can be flexible with your schedule and needs.

    Cons

    The way Deloitte structures their organization, the people who were considered your managers knew NOTHING about you, what you do for your job, etc. They put these people in charge of your reviews, in control of your salary increases and awards. This isn't fair at all. Really the Partners should be in charge of annual reviews, salary increases, etc. I understand that Partners are very busy, but ultimately, you're working directly for them.
    Also, you do Executive Assistant work and they will never give you that title, because they don't want to pay you for the title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they're worth. You've lost a lot of great talent due to underpayment.
