I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Strong learning and coaching culture
- A very valuable brand name in Client Services, Finance, Tax, IT and consulting industries.
- Average and sometimes competitive compensation packages
- Very good benefit packages and maternity/ paternity leaves.

Cons

- Too much bureaucracy and favoritism.
- Its not what you do, its who you know to grow in this organization, all this is secretly swept under the shadow of the notion of "networking". its too political.
- Too many managers and senior leadership, which makes it very hard and challenging to grow in this company.
- Too much work for the pay, you will end up working 10 hours almost daily handling multiple teams and audit clients daily.
- Extremely high expectations from Partners.
- An astounding number of lunch meetings, breakdown meetings, war rooms etc.

Advice to Management

- Lower expectations,
- Devise smart promotion and raise plans to make sure employees do not expect growth too rapidly.
- Form a good smart work life balance by reducing work and red-tape.

    Pros

    Solid salary and investment in milestone training programs.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is talked about, but it is up to each individual to find it. The company rejoices in long hours and dedication, but rewards are not based on effort nor necessarily on impact, but on being at the right place at the right time. Networking is critical to success.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the apprenticeship part of the culture from the Partners on down. Make sure that Senior Managers are mentoring Managers - that link in the chain is broken.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
