Approves of CEO

Pros

learn a lot, looks good on a resume. although tough you learn rigor and how to put in extra hours

Cons

awful benefits and low pay. long hours at times

Advice to Management

it is a revolving door of junior people. you could keep more experienced people if you engaged them more. once you rioll off a client that manager doenst keep an active interest, so you dont feel like you have a true mentor or someone fighting for you

    Former Employee - Senior Auditor in Miami, FL

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You'll learn a lot and it's very useful for down the road, the people are generally really great, lots of resources, pretty easy to move within the company

    Cons

    A lot of work that isn't always rewarded/appreciated
    Most offices are severely understaffed and as a result jobs are under budgeted and employees are way over worked

    Advice to Management

    They definitely need to take an active role in hiring more people. Budgets need to be more realistic, it's a deadly circle whereby clients are understaffed, you have to work longer hours and do the work of two people, people quit, they're more understaffed, have to do even more work in the same amount of time, more people quit.... rinse, repeat.


  2. "ability to perform to your fullest potential"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Deloitte will give you the opportunity to take on as much responsibility as you are willing to ask for, giving you the chance to truly name a name for yourself.

    Cons

    Recent realignment to a National model have resulted in significant "time on the road", many times unneccesarily. The Talent/Staffing organization takes a very myopic view of aligning people to projects, creating situations where specialized talent may be assigned to generalist projects and vice-versa, creating delivery challenges across the board.

    Advice to Management

    The decision to realign to a national model, significant staffing reductions in 2008/2009, ongoing (voluntary) attrition, are restructing of the talent/HR functions were too much to address concurrently.
