    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You have access to a lot of people and information if you are willing to learn and work hard. The benefits are great. Great for your resume!

    Cons

    A big challenge is US staff are having a harder time developing skills from learning the nuts and bolts of engagements due to managers being forced to send a large amount of work to Indian Staff. Because you are forced to use Indian staff engagements are often improperly staffed, and of course all of this is done without the client knowing the extent of it. Seniors, Managers, and Senior managers leave creating a vacuum of properly trained less senior staff to replace them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your managers, they are the ones bearing the burden of poor staffing decisions being made by upper management.

    Pros

    Great training, high caliber professionals

    Cons

    Cubicals, lock-step path to advancement, must commit 4-6 years before seeing any real responsibility

    Advice to Management

    Increase fluidity of advancement opportunities. Reward high performers with promotions and/or more significant bonuses. Get rid of the cubicals. And if you want less turnover, stop paying $50,000 salaries.


  7. "Good brand name, but probably not the place for long-term career"

    Pros

    a) Brand name - considered of the Big 4
    b) Opportunity to work on a variety of things
    c) Exposure to top clients

    Cons

    a) Performance reviews are very political. It is much more important to work with the right partners than do a good job
    b) Delivery is poor - there are many great sales people at Deloitte, but many poor delivery people
    c) Learn on your own, Deloitte will put you in many situations and you have to learn on your own because there is little training and the people you work with are poor at delivery
    d) Siloed in their delivery model, so different areas compete against each other for client work

    Advice to Management

    To be truly one firm, the incentives should be changed to support working toghther, instead of regional and service area silos

    Performance management should be more objective and much more transparent.

    Pros

    Deloitte and other Big 4 accounting firms provide a good Springboard into other accounting fields after some years of employment at any Big 4. Perhaps the best reason to work here is name recognition. You work here, pass your CPA, become licensed, guide some team members in an audit, and then peform that audit, you gain a lot experience that would take many years to achieve. For this reason, working at Deloitte, or any other B4, is beneificial.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is a joke during busy season. You really do not have the opportunities that you need to keep yourself happy between the months of January through April. Most weeks you are working 80 hours, but only reporting 65 to keep under budget. And during those 80 hours, it's hard to spend time with friends/families/yourself. If you can sacrifice that much time of your life, then come to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with staff


  9. "Family comes in second"

    Pros

    Good training in the accounting world. The ability to fulfill the requirements necessary to be licensed as a CPA. Nice friendly people to work with in the entry level positions

    Cons

    Incredibly long hours during certain periods of the year. The downside is that you must put the job before family which might be alright for a man (single or married) or a single woman. But for a woman (especially a single parent) with children, there is no consideration given to your personal life. Out of state travel for prolonged periods of time might be expected which is not conductive to a balanced home life. It was not unusual to work 80 hrs/week during the "busy season".

    Advice to Management

    Consider requests for non-travel and reasonable working hours.

    Pros

    5 weeks Paid Time Off plus National Holidays. Depending on project, great opportunity to interface with client executives.

    Cons

    No benefit of starting with an advanced degree, M.S. graduates and B.S. undergraduates start at the same level with minimal salary difference. Some Project leadership blatantly disregard work-life balance issues. Organization is very Top-heavy and junior staff is penalized for for reasons that are controlled by senior management. Staff is recognized on number of hours billed, and not project performance.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and provide distinct opportunities for staff that might be underutilized but have exceeding expectations performance on client projects. Increase focus on retention and development of existing staff versus experienced hires and acquisitions.
