    Overall positive, but very Machiavellian

    Manager (Current Employee) Portland, OR (US)

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

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementFix the eval process to reduce favoritism; it suffers from compartmentalized myopia.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall terrific but with some serious drawbacks

    Audit Staff (Current Employee) Portland, OR (US)

    ProsThe people, growth opportunities and training

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

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

    Deloitte from a senior perspective

    Audit Senior (Current Employee) Portland, OR (US)

    Pros1 ) 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

    Cons1 ) 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 Senior ManagementMake 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...

    Audit Assistant (Current Employee) Portland, OR (US)

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
