    Clueless Deloitte

    Former Employee - Manager in San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Deloitte normally has nice offices.

    Cons

    Deloitte is filled to the brim with sociopaths, and the higher the person is in the organization the more of a sociopath they will be. Deloitte is constantly lying to its clients because its does not care about what the right thing to do, all decision making is based upon maximizing revenue.

    Deloitte does not promote people who know how to implement projects, only those who can sell. Deloitte provides terrible value, and in every case where I follow them the system has been poorly configured, documentation is lacking, etc..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice to give, Deloitte thinks they know what they are doing when they are simply corrrupt and incompetent.

    Former Contract Assistant - Great place to use basic skills

    Former Employee - Executive Assistant in San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Executive Assistant in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (less than an year)

    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.
