    I worked at Deloitte (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary (if ignore the amount of hours), good benefits, lots of opportunities for special projects or international projects, great resume builder, flexible when it comes to personal appointments, lots of PTO (but can only take it at certain times). The learning curve is very steep, the professional experience gained is invaluable. I was fortunate to get to work on some awesome clients.

    Cons

    Busy season comes with extremely long hours, sometimes even long hours outside of busy season if special projects come up. Your success and happiness is largely dependent on who you work for and the team you work on, so this can be a good or bad thing. When working for multiple partners simultaneously, most of them do not care how much is on your plate, they want you to make them and their clients your first priority. Politics and power egos can be huge - kind of have to play the game. The higher rated you are the more worked you are but at times you do get rewarded for this, again all depends on who you are working for.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like the staff/managers who work on large public clients (and usually just one) get more recognition while staff/managers who work on multiple smaller private companies are assumed to have easier jobs and therefore less recognized. I have been on both sides of this fence and for me personally, it was harder juggling a ton of smaller clients and working for multiple partners versus just working on one large complex client with one partner who regularly recognized his team. Especially when my efforts seemed undervalued since it was just for smaller clients. For the partners who are involved with their teams and speak up for their people, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Amazing PTO, maternity leave/ caregiver leave program. Training and resources are very good. Provides great opportunities for career development

    Cons

    Some of their benefits are not great. Their 401K only matches at 25 cents to the dollar for the first 6%. They only compensate staff at market rate. Lots of late nights.

    Advice to Management

    Increase some of the benefits to be comparable to industry. Pay a premium above market rates in each area.

    Pros

    Deloitte is a great place in terms of learning a lot of things in a span of a short time. Busy season alone feels which is typically 3 months feels like a full year worth of experience.

    Cons

    Long hours should be expected when working big 4. Sometimes hours can be long during interim also so expect a sacrifice in terms of work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Increase cash bonus to all staff.

    I worked at Deloitte (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People of Deloitte Houston are awesome. As an intern, I found great counselors and mentors throughout my experience and grew as a professional.

    Cons

    The work is sometimes tedious, but that's the reality of every audit job. The team or the client might not be your cup of tea sometimes, but the firm tries to fix those situations swiftly.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to tell the interns exciting things: career advice, long term goals, sincere thoughts go a long way.
