        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        You learn a lot and work on interesting projects. Some of the people you meet and work with from the Partners/Managing Directors to the Staff are some of the best you will ever meet in your lifetime.

        Cons

        Pay is terrible for amount of work done and when compared to other Big4 Tax in Chicago. I recommend you switch to another Big4 if you want to stay in public and want to be valued and comped well. With tax reform the hours have gone up but the Comp has not at all. Leadership needs to go

        Advice to Management

        Pay your people more.

      • Great Firm to work for. They invest a lot in their employees
