    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    - High potential for learning tax technical skills - Exposure to large companies in need of sophisticated tax planning - Strong name for resume - Great networking contacts

    Cons

    - Pay is not commensurate with opportunties at other companies/firms, especially when number of hours are factored in

    Advice to Management

    - Leadership at Deloitte tends to be fairly strong; however, retention is difficult due to long hours and pay that is not competitive

    Former Employee - Audit Senior in Portland, OR
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    learn a lot, looks good on a resume. although tough you learn rigor and how to put in extra hours

    Cons

    awful benefits and low pay. long hours at times

    Advice to Management

    it is a revolving door of junior people. you could keep more experienced people if you engaged them more. once you rioll off a client that manager doenst keep an active interest, so you dont feel like you have a true mentor or someone fighting for you

    Current Employee - Audit Senior in Portland, OR
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    1 ) Incomparable visibility into the internal workings of a variety of companies 2 ) Possibilities for rapid advancement compared to other similar career options 3 ) Post-employment clout given experience at a "Big-Four" firm

    Cons

    1 ) Compensation is not in line with the time/effort required and expected of employees both on a regional basis within the same firm and as compared to similar job opportunities with other firms 2 ) Tendency is to treat people as a means to an end and the performance feedback loop leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to Management

    Make feedback meaningful and make it possible for someone to stand out and be recognized for their abilities without having to cow-tow, resort to disingenuity, and eat hours in order to meet minimum expectations (even if the individual is more than sufficiently competent).

  5. "A little audit feedback..."

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    The acquired knowledge from on the job experience is priceless. There are few jobs that develop a sense of autonomy, critical thinking, and problem solving, as an exposure to the overall audit process. It also provides a unique chance to interact with businesses and industry leaders. Networking opportunities abound.

    Cons

    While there are programs in place at the national level to encourage a good work life balance, it is difficult to always maintain a good perspective because of the nature of the work. "Busy Season" (October - March/April) is not conducive to a healthy personal life because of work expectations and demands.

    Advice to Management

    A good work/life balance needs to be continually emphasized in order to ensure retention of the best and brightest within Deloitte.
