    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    5 weeks paid vacation, if you can actually find time to take it. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    You are a slave. Salary is very mediocre and you'll be working a minimum of 50 hours/week, but more likely closer to 60 most weeks.

    Advice to Management

    You're clearly making plenty of money when the partners all have yachts and vacation homes. Stop making one person do the work of two and just hire a couple more people.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A lot of career opportunities, good pay, good benefits, prestige of firm on your resume, good culture

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season (it's accounting), work/life balance can be tough at times

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand what your employees want and what other opportunities they want to pursue within the firm so they don't jump ship and look elsewhere to get the experience they desire.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    They have good benefits and a lot of time off even if you aren't allowed to always take that time off.

    Cons

    We work VERY long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with more respect and praise those who do well, so they are more willing to stick around. Most of the smartest and most competant people I've worked with have ended up quitting due to the lack of respect.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Reputation. Good place to launch career and move on to something better. Typically coworkers are bright and have great personalities.

    Cons

    Places that have to use the phrase "work life balance" usually have none. A sink or swim mentality Pay per hour sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the staff or managers who are jerks. This is too intense and team oriented of a workplace for us to be able to work with genuine a-holes. Why tolerate them? You lose good decent human beings when you retain jerks.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    The pay is okay..but per hour and with overtime it means nothing. I'll get back to you and I'm still thinking.....

    Cons

    Deloitte's brand is a joke. There is no diversity, they have all these "intiatives" for minorities and GLBT individuals, but they really look down on you. There is ridiculous turnover and it amazes me how they get voted one of the best places to work....can you bribery. Management is just horrible and serioulsy unless you like living at the job, don't count on a work life balance and a family. Most people don't have...

    Advice to Management

    Management just needs to fix all of the issues. They are aware of it, but they just don't care and undertake superficial approaches to rectify the issues. They need to stop throwing the issues under the rug and address the concerns people are stating directly--maybe then people will stay with the firm. They reprimand those that state concerns, which hinders people from telling the truth. They use people at the lower...

  9. "Needs better work/life Balance."

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    You will learn a lot on the accounting side in a short amount of time simply because you are "thrown into the fire". You get exposed to a lot of complex issues, but many times have to figure it out for yourself.

    Cons

    Work life balance is non-existent. You get 25 vacation days, but with very little opportunity to take these days because you are always so busy and always expected to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep headcount steady by providing a better work/life balance. Turnover is high, and that in turn hurts the people who stick around because they must pick up the hours. Keep hiring and improve work/life balance and you won't have a revolving door of associates.
