    They work with you to accommodate as best they can, but work life balance, especially during busy season is pretty bad.

    Pros

    Great PTO package, good benefits, good pay.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance, long hours. If there is a deadline, you only go home to sleep.

    Pros

    -Great place to gain your 1st real experience as an intern
    -Great networking opportunities (events or individuals)
    -Great pay for interns
    -Great training facility for the company (DU)

    Cons

    -You do not get as much feedback, so you do not really know what area to improve on
    -Not a lot of fun activities to showcase the solid work-life balance the company possess
    -No intern rotation within the different areas of tax. Doing the same thing became monotonous and boring.

    Advice to Management

    -Give lower management more attention so that they will grow to one day help other (Lift as you climb)

    Pros

    Very professional company, well managed and have plenty of self-training opportunities and certification.

    Cons

    Particular to ASSOCIATE model in Deloitte - Associates are hired based in project and would need to be billable all the time. You are given 4 weeks of time to find a new project (when your billing) is getting over and if you cannot be placed you will be terminated irrespective of your performance. HR folks will keep repeating the fact that there is no bench time in Deloitte. I was billable from start to end for almost 2 years and was laid off on my last billing day.
    This is a big pain for H1b employees where they need to find another job within couple of weeks as Deloitte would cancel H1b anytime from Week1 to Week 4 of termination and usually their attorney would start it after 2 weeks of termination (they call it separation). So I feel it is very dangerous to join Deloitte in ASSOCIATE model. Otherwise it is a good company.

    Advice to Management

    The ASSOCIATE model is a bad spot on a reputed company like Deloitte. This is purely hire and fire strategy and would put the employees working in this model in a tight spot. Many of them are H1b employees and you are playing with their future.

    Pros

    Firm reputation, training, company values, and exposure to high caliber clients are all positive reasons to join this firm. The hours can be a little long during busy season but the experience is worth it!

    Cons

    This environment may seem somewhat restrictive to those who want to run their own business. If you don't mind the regimented environment and the years to achieve your goal of becoming a partner it is a great place to build a career.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Great firm for gaining experience and contacts.
