Pros

Respect and recognition that people are the most important part of the business. Commitment of the company towards the development of the people.

Cons

Inconsistency of the promotions and salary policy between functional groups AND within functional group. Designation of "Favorites" and arbitrary nature of partner promotions. A nebulous category exists "partner" material that is undefined. People with similar metrics would have different treatment. This exists even at certain lower levels. Even though I love working here I know first hand of several people for whom this was a reason for departure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some consistency in the promotions and salary policy at least within the functional group. The focus is around the best place for someone to start a career, its time to develop a "lifer" mentality

    Pros

    Career development - you work a ton of hours but learn at such a rapid rate. It is an opportunity in your first year out of college to meet with and discuss accounting treatment with executives from Fortune 500 companies. Your market value increases exponentially year after year and when you decide to leave or even do a market check, you are a highly valued commodity due to this experience.

    Cons

    All work and no life. It is an extremely political environment - especially the compensation reviews. A lot of very talented people are turned off to the annual review process whereby managers and partners get together and decide your raise sometimes completely disregarding your feedback from assignments. If you go out and drink with the right people, kiss the right butts, and work for a manager that is "in" with the partners you can easily get a better rating then someone who works much harder with a manager that is not as popular.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a more subjective way of rating and promoting employees.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Deloitte offers a wealth of professional opportunities, which really is only limited by the individual's interest and effort in pursuing those opportunities to grow. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the largest companies in the world on projects of critical importance to those organizations. The collaborative spirit of the firm provides ample opportunity to work on these projects with company representatives and other Deloitte professionals at all levels. I think that this combination of great client project opportunities and the chance to work in a collegial team environment makes Deloitte a great place to work, both as a career launch pad, but also as a long-term career choice.

    Cons

    Networking is incredibly important, and it can be difficult at times to connect with the right people within different disciplines without an informal, personal link. One of the great strengths of the firm is the diverse skill sets and perspectives, and although there are more formal reporting lines and "proper" channels for working across disciplines, but informal networking often is the real way that work gets done. This may serve as an advantage once you are able to develop those networks (and a better understanding of what other services and skills are available within Deloitte), but it can be frustrating if you urgently need to identify a particular skill set outside of your network.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work to break down silos between the various disciplines within the company and to increase the amount of cross-border collaboration with professionals in other countries.
