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

    Pros

    PTO, other benefits. Most people in the Morrisville NC office were a definite pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Was part of an acquisition from CIS, which later became CIS by Deloitte. Finance was absorbed into a broader team known as the COE. Although, the idea of the COE is a great one, poor leadership and lack of understanding of the individual businesses the COE supports led to great difficulty and often times created tension between the COE and business (CIS), which lower level employees like myself and team members were often blamed for. Prior to my leaving the firm, the COE obtained a new director, who I feel has great potential to make COE something truly valuable to Deloitte. However, mid management level decisions need to be reevaluated. Although smart people, mid management really needs to strive harder to connect with their employees and understand their task and duties on a day to day basis. I would avoid working for the Finance COE, until they can further figure out their relationship and build trust with the business leaders of CIS and prove to care about you as an employee and person.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees who have been with CIS since before the acquisition, and do not take them for granted, I believe there is still one left at this point. They have valuable insight into the business, that Deloitte hired professionals do not.

    Pros

    A large global employer with many opportunities with a good benefits and salary that could turn into a career.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees truthfully and tell them directly what needs to be done or what will be done and don't rely on a recruiter or a HR manager to tell sensitive information.

    Pros

    There are many young, smart, and fun people depending on which clients you get on. Never the same day in the office or on the client. Great vacation package.

    Cons

    They work you like a dog. There is no motivation to work hard because you will stay late no matter what and if it gets around you are good at cleaning up messes or good at carve-outs/acquisitions you just end up working more, which means more hours. A lot of hard work or efficient work goes unnoticed due to the fact that people just stay late due to the fact that they are on Facebook. It is about hours not the work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people when it gets busy instead of firing people to keep costs low. We are a huge company and need more people.

    Great PTO and benefits

    Cons

    Do not work for COE finance team Morrisville and NJ. Not a conducive team environment to work!

    Performance reviews are biased when it comes to promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Does not listen to everyone in the team and makes decision based on one side of the conversation. He is biased! The upper managements fails to realize why the employees are leaving. Upper management fails to realize a difference between which employees are doing the work and the other team members are socializing throughout the day and lying about their work.

     Do not work there!
