    Pros

    Decent pay, amazing perks, great corporate culture

    Cons

    Hours will destroy you. My busy season was 9am-2am some nights. That made my hourly pay less than a McDonalds employee.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain your people, pay them more.

    I worked at Deloitte as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a Transfer Pricing Intern during the Summer of 2017 and I had one of the best bosses, in the way that she really took her time and invested in letting me know the history and structure of each of the companies we analyzed. They have a lot of social activity for the employees and great benefits (even for interns). They celebrate all of the employees' birthdays (with cake). Great management, they really seem to care about having a social/comfortable corporate culture. My co-workers were also really helpful whenever I would get stuck with something and I ended up learning a lot during the course of 10 weeks.

    Cons

    Sometimes because you are an intern they will seem to make you work on tedious tasks that no other employee wants to do and it was this way for the first half of the internship.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generous traveling/meal per diems. Extremely talented coworkers. Flexibility for working remotely. Generous work phone plan. Fairly easy to get your first promotion to Senior, and then again to Manager.

    Cons

    Extremely tight deadlines. Partners over promise clients on deliverable timelines. PTO is frowned upon. Very common to work most weekends. 60 hour weeks are common and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.

    Pros

    Name value of Deloitte sure doesn't disappoint - even as a first year auditor, the learning curve is steep and you learn the ins and outs of the basic core of a business, how it runs, how it shouldn't run, and have the opportunity to interact with individuals ranging from staff accountant to corporate controller to VP of finance. For anyone with a business/economics/accounting background, this is an awesome start to your career. People on your team are extremely smart individuals who have stayed and are still employed for a reason. Granted, there may be differences of opinion and experiences depending on which client and team you are assigned to.
    But it really is what you make of it out of your own career, as no one is going to teach you how to steer your own ship.

    Fantastic experience so far, haven't stopped learning, and everyday is a challenge.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about
