Pros

Deloitte is one of the quickest ways to advance your Career in the Business World. There is an extremely high learning curve, that continues through-out your Career. Your working with the best and the brightest people who all have similar high ambitions to succeed. Your value in the Market Place grows exponentially with your time spent at Deloitte. Business Week 2007 ratings place Deloitte as the #1 place to launch a career out of college.

Cons

There can be some extremely long hours. But much of that depends on the Clients you have. You are compensated with 23-28 PTO days and 10 paid holidays per year. Work life balance can be tough especially if you're working a lot of hours while trying to pass the CPA and still have some resemblance of a life.

Advice to Management

Be aware the number of hours it takes to get something done and if the budgeted hours are too skimpy people will eat hours to get the job done and receive a good review.

    Pros

    Great career opportunities, very fast paced, great people. In general when you join Deloitte you notice that you will work with 23-35 year old type A personalities who are extremely intelligent and knowledgeable. The drive to succeed is the core of the organization, however, it’s not a cut throat competition - people are very down to earth, and at all career levels people are interested and willing to take the time to develop those at the lower career levels. Generally, a friendly and fun work place with a lot of opportunities, but not for the lazy and disinterested individuals. If you have a goal and willing to work for to make it happen, someone will help you get there - senior management that you work for directly generally has a genuine interest in helping you succeed. Deloitte also offers a lot of opportunities and flexibility in terms of career choices – once you are in, you can change your concentration, travel abroad, teach, work on developing new technologies, and do million other things- if anything, you will never be board at work, and that beats any other accounting job you will ever have – try to stay excited about doing month end close every month, or settling account recs, and writing the same accounting documents – not to knock on other professions – but big 4 and Deloitte generally gives you a lot more in terms of career choice and growth if translated at a rate per year of employment – and Deloitte difference is truly the people that you work with.

    Cons

    Unreasonably long hours… Best people work the most, and the work life balance thing becomes a far fetched dream - 5 months of 80 hour weeks is a lot to ask of anyone. Sometimes i think of Deloitte as Darwin’s lab - survival of the fittest is the best way to describe it. If you have guts to stick it out, the reward is there, and then Deloitte truly stands for “where the best chose to be,” because no wimp is going to be able to do this day in and day out with a smile.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize high performers, and be fair in rating people - it would help to cut the free-riders a lot sooner, to help the rest of the crew work more effectively, reduce workload for those who have to make up for the underperformers. Hopefully, this can help reduce the turnover among the strong performers, as people may be willing to stay for the long term benefit if there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
