Former Employee - Senior Tax Consultant in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Senior Tax Consultant in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Deloitte

Pros

- Enjoyed working with most of my colleagues.
- Good amount of PTO (5 weeks)
- They make a a lot of effort to train you to improve your technical expertise.
- Opportunities to work in India (on rotation)

Cons

- Really poor work/life balance during both tax busy seasons. I would work until 11pm or midnight for 2 months straight, plus 8+ hr days on weekends.
- Salary is not competitive.
- Some of the staff that was hired was just awful. It kind of makes you wonder if the company hires just anybody.
- People who should be fired aren't....or it takes them a long time. Everyone gets promoted at the same time, so if you're just "okay" you seem to be promoted as well. No incentive to work that hard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    1. Good exposure to senior management/C-suite clients
    2. Solid opportunities to grow- your career is what you make out of it. The faster you run, the harder you work, the more impact you create... the faster your career will progress
    3. Good resources for development - mentorship & counseling, internal & external resources easily available

    Cons

    1. Need to be part of a "group", or can get easily left out
    2. Poor work life balance - projects are busy, expectations are high. Too much extra focus on initiatives and other internal projects rob whatever leftover time remains for normal life. Weekend work is common, many late nights, lots of travel
    3. Lots of layoffs last year have left people unhappy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take stock and reward people for hard work. Put an end to the madness of initiatives - let people focus on good, solid client service

    Pros

    Learning opportunities, knowledge sharing and collaborative culture, resources available within a large firm, coaching and mentoring, great leaders

    Cons

    Can be highly political, high-performing culture is demanding, lack of work-life balance, partnership model makes it difficult to attain high ranks, pay not as commensurate w/other consulting firms and industry positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on firm contributions for high acheiving value drivers, be more transparent regarding compensation
