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

Pros

A good place for young professionals to gain skills.

Cons

Everyone is out for himself. The incentive model pits employees against each other. Everyone wants your knowledge and your assistance until you are obligated to ask for credit on the deal, and then you're cut out. In stead of getting the job done, workers are left on the bench unbillable because they are overqualified (too expensive for the Partner's net profit report).

Advice to Management

Put the customer first. Don't be so risk adverse. Make Deloitte more personable.

    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 flexibility in vacation time and work hours during non-busy season time

    Cons

    --Non-busy season time has become scarce; employees regularly work 6 month busy seasons.

    -- Smart, competent employees leave the firm to find better opportunities; incompetent performers are the experienced employees left over to promote to leadership

    -- Relatively bad pay and opportunist culture of San Francisco result in the highest turnover of the best talent in the Deloitte SF office

    --Opportunities to jump on advanced and/or fitting assignments are limited by politics and inefficient, weak management philosophies.

    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.
