    Great place to start, but probably not a life-long career.

    Current Employee - Audit Senior Assistant in Portland, OR (US)
    Current Employee - Audit Senior Assistant in Portland, OR (US)

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of good training and exposure to many industries and different businesses. Easy to transfer to certain locations. So far my time on the west coast seems a little more laid back than the east coast however I have yet to go through a busy season.

    Cons

    We are salaried and are not paid enough for the hours we work in busy season--probably my biggest issue with the job is the salary. The self evaluations are probably the most annoying thing to complete and seem like a waste of time.

    Current Employee - Manager in Portland, OR (US)

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to develop yourself (skills, etc.), move laterally, work on 'headline' projects

    Cons

    You are the resource (it's a people business) which can be unsettling, you will have to travel (which doesn't work with kids).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the eval process to reduce favoritism; it suffers from compartmentalized myopia.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people, growth opportunities and training

    Cons

    Somewhat of a sink or swim culture, unrealistic expectations and low pay for hours worked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic with expectations. Being asked and expected to do the impossible is not fun.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Deloitte from a senior perspective

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Audit Senior in Portland, OR (US)
    Current Employee - Audit Senior in Portland, OR (US)

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    1 ) Incomparable visibility into the internal workings of a variety of companies
    2 ) Possibilities for rapid advancement compared to other similar career options
    3 ) Post-employment clout given experience at a "Big-Four" firm

    Cons

    1 ) Compensation is not in line with the time/effort required and expected of employees both on a regional basis within the same firm and as compared to similar job opportunities with other firms
    2 ) Tendency is to treat people as a means to an end and the performance feedback loop leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make feedback meaningful and make it possible for someone to stand out and be recognized for their abilities without having to cow-tow, resort to disingenuity, and eat hours in order to meet minimum expectations (even if the individual is more than sufficiently competent).

    A little audit feedback...

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Audit Assistant in Portland, OR (US)
    Current Employee - Audit Assistant in Portland, OR (US)

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    The acquired knowledge from on the job experience is priceless. There are few jobs that develop a sense of autonomy, critical thinking, and problem solving, as an exposure to the overall audit process. It also provides a unique chance to interact with businesses and industry leaders. Networking opportunities abound.

    Cons

    While there are programs in place at the national level to encourage a good work life balance, it is difficult to always maintain a good perspective because of the nature of the work. "Busy Season" (October - March/April) is not conducive to a healthy personal life because of work expectations and demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good work/life balance needs to be continually emphasized in order to ensure retention of the best and brightest within Deloitte.
