    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    As a paraprofessional, you have the ability to focus on your strengths and perform outside your "job description". Ensure to be clear about what you are great at in your job interview and continue to identify opportunities align the way to help foster your professional development.

    Cons

    No one looks out for you. You need to look out for yourself!

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    smart people around you, great type A and B personalities so you will find friends

    Cons

    Long insane hours, support might not be there. if you get a bad or tempermental manager, you're done. As long as you understand the foundation of audit, you'll be fine. .Lots of natural cliques and favoritism among partners to staff

    Advice to Management

    Retention is high, but expected. those who stay are invested and in it for the long run-- kudos to you

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

    Pros

    - good corprate culture. End of summer baseball tournament and fun day trip for all the interns
    - for IT the workload was manageable for interns, only felt stressed once or twice the whole summer

    Cons

    - Everything is very structured, as most big companies are. ie lots of red tap in order to change things

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Good name to have on a resume
    Decent benefits
    Interesting work, never a dull moment
    Lots of training opportunities

    Cons

    Company is trying to cut their bottom line and OT is frowned upon despite there being too few resources, especially with admin staff.
    No such thing as 9-5, always working late hours despite not being able to claim OT as it is not pre-approved.
    Cut backs in areas like Talent and Marketplace add to an already heavy workload for admin staff
    No work/life balance
    Recognition program has been taken away which is particularly bad as non-client facing staff are not able to participate in the bonus program despite doing work for clients

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the work that your admin staff do, recognize that they are being stretched thin and add more staff. Bring back some sort of a recognition program, having it being taken away is so bad for already low morale as everything goes by unnoticed.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work with great people and on great projects, also international projects available. A lot of education possibilities.

    Cons

    This is definitely no 9-5 job and should be aware of that before joining. Sometimes very hard to keep your boundaries and response to saying no varies per person.

    Advice to Management

    People are your assets and they are much unhappier than you think. Please take the time to actually listen to them and act on it.

    Pros

    Some really good managers and a culture that really lets you grow as a professional.

    Cons

    There is some serious East-Coast bias when it comes to staffing and projects. West coast employees can sometimes feel like just support resources constantly being staffed on east coast projects.

    Advice to Management

    Grow stronger west-coast leadership teams.
