    I have been working at Compliance Implementation Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Potential for growth and opportunity within a niche focus area that is a part of Deloitte; great benefits through Deloitte; management is striving to build and grow the business; to be a part of a large company you still get to be an actual person and not a number that is assigned on random projects; flexibility and work-life balance do exist; casual office - jeans are normal wear everyday; overall - a great place to work!

    Cons

    Each office location unfortunately has a very different culture and attitude. The Morrisville/Raleigh office and Bristol offices tends to have a better working atmosphere and employees tend to be happier than the Newtown Square office; the Chicago office is really small (1 or 2 people). Due to the structure of the acquisition, current employees have to wait a longer time that normal for a raise so more turnover is very likely. However, new employees starting now would be up for review/raise a year from now, so that would not affect them.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to retain the great employees and work on recruiting personnel with industry/consulting experience that are a good fit. Invest more into the employees especially during a difficult time such as a transition. Within the first 30 days, your employees kept up their regular jobs and also met all the requirements of an onboarding employee at Deloitte. Recognize their efforts!

    Pros

    Some truly wonderful people still remain at the company, but they don't run it. If you're lucky, you will report directly to them (and you'll know right away). For associates, there is opportunity for advancement if you have strong communication and analytical skills. The company is still being reorganized as it gets further integrated with Deloitte, so managers may find themselves in the right place at the right time. The company would have you believe that the Deloitte name carries some weight on your resume.

    Cons

    A lot of employees don't trust senior leadership. The loudest voices are able to influence decision making without responsibility or accountability. A highly political atmosphere pits departments and employees against each other without regard for team consequence. Employees can advance prematurely due to turnover. At the same time, management will hire out for new positions. Despite access to Deloitte's HR and benefits, the company has difficultly recruiting and retaining talent.

    There are benefits and you get paid. It's a job.

    Cons

    Imagine you’re a construction worker and have been for a few years now. You’re working for a company that has built multiple small buildings that have been extremely successful and made your clients very happy. Your company gets new management (new to you and to the building industry) and decides they want to build one very big building right away and you have 6 months. They give you a week to research whether you should use nails, screws, staples, glue, tape, etc. In the past you’ve always been successful with nails and a hammer, but will research the difference for this bigger scale. Then the newest guy on your teams says, with no other research, that his past company always used screws and it worked out really well. Management is sold and they have you use screws. Then another newer guy says, well we’ve always used hammers - so once again, management, knowing nothing about building, says go with it. When you try to say “hey, you can’t use a hammer and a screw, that’s not right…” management says “lets see how it goes we can always change it”. The first guy, not wanting to admit his screws aren’t good, just starts hacking away at the screw with the hammer until it jams itself into a piece of wood, while the rest of the competent employees sit back saying this isn’t how construction works. Three months pass and you have some pieces of wood put together, the new guys are the only ones management likes because they're the only ones with a seemingly positive outlook on all of this, but there is absolutely no foundation. However there is a REALLY good looking blueprint. All the construction workers know its a mess, but management says you’re in too far to make changes, so you have to keep going with the tools they decided on. Because they have nothing to show the client, they just keep showing the blueprint - and as you have designers keep trucking away at that blueprint, it looks better and better every time. The building has yet to be shown off - management doesn’t seem to be addressing the failures. When it’s time to move in, it’s going to crumble - that's if, when the client sees it, they even want to risk stepping in the front door.

    Advice to Management

    They’re in too deep, there’s really no going back. You’ve dug your own grave.

    Pros

    Good PTO and sick time.

    Cons

    No career path in place so not very motivating. There is no HR so you have to be comfortable speaking with your direct report to talk about anything HR related. The benefits are terrible. You have to pay an arm and a leg to be covered and it's not very good coverge at all. If you leave or are laid off you will not receive any pay back for remaining vacation hours not taken.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone for HR!

    I worked at Compliance Implementation Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CIS by Deloitte (formerly Compliance Implementation Services) has some great people who are a joy to work with. The problems being solved and they ways they're being solved are novel & interesting and it's a relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Compliance Implementation Services was bought by Deloitte, who you may remember as The Bad Guy from every dystopian science fiction film you've ever seen. That guy with the mohawk in the first Road Warrior film? He's a partner. Now that Deloitte is in country, things seem to be changing and what was a fun place to work has shifted to another job with unrealistic goals. It's a bummer because there used to be ice cream occasionally.
    The absolute WORST thing about working at CIS by Deloitte, however, was the rightmost soap dispenser in the men's bathroom. When you want soap, it isn't there. When you just want to rinse your hands, there's soap all over your shirt sleeve. It was infuriating and while I didn't mention it in my exit interview, it's really the reason I quit. In addition, the building janitorial staff have some sort of preternatural ability to be cleaning the bathroom at the most inopportune times.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the soap dispenser. Reschedule janitorial until after 5pm. Use the Deloitte buy out money to build a time machine, go back and don't sell out to Deloitte, thereby creating not only a paradox but a better environment for your employees. Stop hiring contractors.

    Pros

    There are definitely very bright folks that work at the company and assuming you get the facetime, it works in your favor.

    Cons

    Unless you are quantifiable from the beginning - no one cares enough to help you succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Work to develop your subordinates, its these folks that will create a better culture for the company.

    good salary, great benefits, interesting work mostly, nice working physical environment and some very nice people but....

    Cons

    unfriendly office environment, absolutely no attempt to communicate organization structure or reporting structure, lack of policies and procedures for understanding responsibilities and other divisions in the company , poor communication from upper management

    Advice to Management

    recruiting and hiring people is expensive and time consuming, look at your processes after the hire to see why there is such a revolving door
