No opinion of CEO

Pros

Control of your own career path. Opportunities to learn are endless. Annual promotions if you're performance is at par. Flexible work hours.

Cons

Not a very structured learning environment so you'll have to seek out mentors and learning opportunities on your own. Hours are very demanding and work/life balance is non-extistent in the deptartment I work in.

Advice to Management

Management could do a better job of taking into consideration upward feedback from their subordinates.

    Pros

    The pay is decent, $115,000 for IT Manager. Benefits are really good, they cover, invitro which is really expensive, and they have paternity leave which is nice. Good vacation days.

    Cons

    As an IT person, the project Deloitte does are complete junk projects. These are the projects that if a contracting place called you, you'd be like " I don't think so". All Deloitte projects are like that, they never have the cool projects. The people that say "interesting work" obviously are right out of college, because DT just does the junk work so they can bill $300 hour. Another con, ppl hounding you to work 70hour weeks because every project is "behind schedule". It's typical to arrive Monday, work noon - 8pm, tues and wed, 8-8, thurs 8-4. And then they want you to do a bunch of non work relatted stuff as well, ...go for drinks after 8-8p day, go to networking "because a partner is in town", etc etc. But of course the fact that you need to exercise, spend time with family is not on the radar. A real clunker of a company for IT ppl. Could be different for the accounting folks, I don't know.

    Advice to Management

    All managers should loose the smug attitude and should also realize that just by throwing out a mouthful of buzzwords, everyone still knows they are talking nonsense.
