    Pros

    Great office culture, friendly people and strong team-oriented atmosphere, focus on work life balance, lots of opportunities for growth

    Cons

    Projects can be financial services focused, pay is not always very competitive, there is a bit of a need to align to a team early in order to succeed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on paying people more to retain top talent, and I think the Monitor acquisition was smart and hope it has changed the company

    Pros

    You will get to learn a lot and experience a lot of opportunities in different service lines and industries.

    Cons

    Too much overtime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more about employee's benefits especially work life balance. To excel at work is great but life is not all about work. Having a balanced life help excel at work and provide more insight on the purpose of work and relationship with people around.

    Good brand name, huge discrepancy among groups - some groups are double promoting while others are laying off people

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    good recognition due to global brand name, but audit is the worst among all business lines. CA is regarded highly in Canada, opens certain opportunities

    Cons

    low pay, long hours, non-challenging work, less-than-desirable work environment, audit is the worst among all service lines at Deloitte - everyone wants to get out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create more social and events among the staff, now everyone barely meets other people at the firm

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Will learn a lot from working 90 hour weeks all the time
    no time wasting; always working and learning on the job

    Cons

    no actual training provided (will need to go for free training)
    The hardworking good people will always end up leaving
    Salary is very bad for the amount of hours you work
    Accounting will always get in the way of Consulting, Financial Advisory, Enterprise Risk Services... Always will be an accounting firm then a consulting firm.
    Partner politics is horrible.

    BTA - Experience

    Current Employee - Business Technology Analyst in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Business Technology Analyst in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Training, Client Experience, and a proving ground for an individual

    Cons

    Too reliant on billable hours even when you work more than what is being billed. The work life balance is not equal to the compensation, and if you out perform your role you are not rewarded any different than someone who slightly exceeds,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compare salaries to the industry, and measure your salary for industry hires differently.

    Review of Deloitte Canada

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    * Collegial atmosphere
    * access to experts in many fields
    * true commitment to diversity
    * large organization and lots of opportunity for internal promotions or lateral moves - can have a long career with the firm

    Cons

    * raises are small
    * Tend to understaff - individual workload is very heavy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider better compensation. I saw a lot of people leave over the years because they worked very hard for less money than they were worth. The cost of replacing people is greater than compensating talented people well.
