I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Professional environment. The systems in place and resources are extensive. There was a great sense of coordination and communication and sharing of best practices at least among the department.

Cons

Scope of position is limited in nature. If you are an Exec Assistant looking for a challenge do not apply. If you are an inexperienced assistant looking to gain skills in a large corporate environment, this is a great place to work.

Advice to Management

There seems to be a disconnect between the operations group who hires support for the Partners. Hence the Partners are not invested in the people supporting them. From my experience this resulted in the Partners not relying on their assistants for a higher level of support, since they really didn't have much say in the continuity or duration of their support staff.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great exposure to clients and learning opportunities. Committed to professional development. Extremely flexible work arrangements.

    Cons

    Very single minded focused on revenue and CPAs, everyone else is support. Hours can be intense in tax busy season.

    Advice to Management

    office politics are out of control in focus on revenue

    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Having Deloitte on your resume opens many doors for other opportunities.

    Cons

    During busy season, there is no such thing as work-life-balance. Unless someone takes a personal interest in you (which is rare) it is hard to learn and grow. Too often you're told "see what was done last year" without any further guidance or explanation. Robots.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look around at those leaving - an entire team, from Auditor to Manager under the same Senior Manager quit. There is no appreciation of current employees.
