    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The training, networking, methodology, and client base. It’s a great line on your resume. The scale of the firm allows for resources that simply aren’t possible at other firms. Cathy Engelbert is a superb leader.

    Cons

    Expectations can be unreasonable. Consistent with public accounting in general, all engagements are understaffed. While some people sit unassigned, others are working long hours. Too much reliance on third year professionals to provide feedback to management about staff.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed my time at Deloitte.

    Take a moment to evaluate the influence given to inexperienced seniors over the careers of staff. This is often the first professional leadership experience for them. Their inexperience is sometimes projected onto the staff, and it can cause significant harm.

    Keep pushing the cutting edge tech and employee initiatives. This is a great firm.

    I worked at Deloitte (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great experience in managing a project (engagement)
    -Lots of various client interaction
    -Best way to understand accounting

    Cons

    -Won't get to work on clients you want to work on
    -Will probably work in the suburbs and not downtown
    -Unless you're a star performer (fast track) there's no way to avoid the above cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The business model wouldn't work any other way.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at Deloitte's San Francisco office in the audit practice. The office does a great job of hiring a wide variety of backgrounds but overall good people, leading to a great office culture. Employees are given responsibility early on, especially in the audit practice - as a "senior" you're partially responsible for running a small team.

    Cons

    The organization is so large meaning there is red tape and sometimes arduous processes to get things done. This is likely how all of the big 4 firms operate, though

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have a couple of real friends here. I would recommend joining the tax department, it's a lot better than the audit department. They're actually friends and care about each other.

    Cons

    Audit management pretends they care when they truly just want to work you as hard as they possibly can before you leave. Super stressful environment. The atmosphere is work longer, not smarter. Only rewarded for hours worked, not the quality of what you do. I plan to leave soon. Pay is minimal - those I know who have left the company make a lot more money and have better benefits and work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Address the high turnover directly. Don't pretend it's not happening, and don't expect us to keep working longer and longer hours. Everyone will keep leaving. Try to actually care instead of pretending.
