    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    -- Invaluable learning opportunity to witness high-level operations and network with upper-level management at Fortune 500 companies -- Fast track to obtaining attest experience and the CPA -- Large corporate setting and availabiity of resources truly dictate the phrase "it's what you make if it" -- Work/Life balance can be satisfactory if you communicate your needs early on and continuously -- Considerable...

    Advice to Management

    Consider a lateral change in engagement management tactics for AERS' economic success. Clearly the approach now isn't working and everyone is leaving.

    Pros

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

    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 worked at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, and excel skills learnt are easily transferable to any profession.

    Cons

    Not enough compensation per hours worked. I tried switching out of tax, no support from senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, encourage employees to seek employment else where with in the firm after two years. There is high turnover, I think this would make sense as you already invested time and money in staff.

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

    Pros

    As a Staff (Tax Consultant): - huge network of great professionals; - well recognized in the professional world; - looks wonderful on a resume; - a vast network of people, who, if open to network, may be in your professional life forever!

    Cons

    As a Staff (Tax Consultant): - partners/directors who treat Staff as crap and give you little time of day; - limited interaction with Senior Tax Managers/Directors/Partners; - long hours on mindless work... There does not seem to be any difference among Staff. One could have a JD/LLM(Tax), another MBT, another MAcc, BS Accounting, or just BA in English - all do the same work! The resources and knowledge of various...
