I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Fantastic benefits and perks - Technology to support employees is excellent. Things just work - Anyone willing to work to do a bit of research can find tools and support structure to make things simple

Cons

- Like a typical consulting company, it is easy to "get lost" in the system and feel as if you have no support - Blending experienced hires with "cocky" MBA types is a challenge and the system is geared towards the campus hires - Mid-level management is sometimes too focused on delivering projects and loses focus on team recognition... Not enough "ad hoc" recognition

Advice to Management

- More structured onboarding for experienced hires will help them assimilate faster - More formal mentoring process needed even at lower levels - Greater commitment from mid-level management is needed to make sure that standard processes are followed and duplication of work is avoided. Most project teams do not invest enough time to investigate and reuse material that exists

    Pros

    The top pro about working at Deloitte is the networks you make and the opportunities that are unlocked the second you walk in the door. Once you're here, you're a valued asset anywhere else in the industry. You are looked at by everyone in Accounting as a professional that has the skills and the experience to navigate pretty much any other Job in accounting. Not only do you gain valuable skills relating to accounting issues but you also gain an understanding of the inner workings of a variety of companies within industries, something that you can never achieve unless you're at a Big Four. Personally, I joined Deloitte compared to any other of the Big Four because I liked the recruiters at my school. Believe it or not, that in itself was enough for me to lean towards working for Deloitte than anything else. That to me represented the culture and the people that I would be working with and it didn't disappoint. The people I work with are incredible; the drive and ambition within every individual I have met is off the charts; More so the work ethic and overall intelligence you find here simply cannot be found anywhere else.

    Cons

    With everything that Deloitte is, there are still a few things it lacks. And these missing pieces are pretty apparent right out the gate. The long hours and relatively low pay (at least for the first 6-7 years) are reasons enough for anyone to jump ship when you consider having and proving for a family as well as spending time with friends and family. That is the only con of working here. If you can live with working for twice minimum wage/hr (calculated) at least for the first few years of your career then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff a little more, at least be close to being competitive with industry. It's understandable that Deloitte doesn't care about retaining talent but at least keep them happy while they're here. The perks are great but the salary just isn't up to par. Everyone realizes that there's nothing that anyone can do about what Deloitte decides to pay us but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be compensated well for our hard work.
