Deloitte, being one of the "big 4" firms in the world in providing finance-related professional services, is the place where I have been obtaining concentrated experience in my professional career. the experience varies from technical to analytical to soft skills development whereby everyday is a day for new challenges and knowledge.
With the friendly and cooperative working environment, colleagues are more of a family to each others, all the way from associates to partners.
After more than five years of work at this firm, the hardest yet the most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with different kinds of people with different cultures and environments which raises the challenge to a whole new level whereby in the field of service rendering, everybody is required to be satisfied the work in a professional manner.
Senior Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – rosslyn, va – 8 March 2017
Deloitte is amazing at giving there employees a work and life balance. They really do take care of there employees and offer amazing benefits. With several locations around the world, it is very easy to relocate to any desired position
Cross-Border Tax Analyst Intern (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 February 2017
Multibillion dollar company that is upward trending. Relaxed and progressive culture for a professional services firm. Adequate pay and benefits. Employees are given wonderful hands-on experience early and often.
With an exception management is lacking leadership traits
IT Consultant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 February 2017
One of the most poorly managed organization despite largest consulting company. The partner model might be best for the business and quoting high rates to the clients, but worst for employees. No direction from the managers with some exceptions.
Long hours, irresponsible senior managers in Toronto especially, lacking serious leadership and team management skills and biased and partial.
A great company for someone who loves working for Partners
National Software Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 January 2017
I have learned to use ACCPAC applications software, and software supplier contracts. Also they thought me to stand up for myself.
At the time of my employment the culture was very strict, dedicated lunch time, breaks, with no flex hours. Management was always willing to help and answered my multiple questions about the software business.
Senior Accountant (Former Employee) – Kitchener – 26 January 2017
The big 4 accounting firms take advantage of new grads, and newly designated CPAs by overworking and underpaying them. That being said, this is the nature of the industry. The Partners and Senior Managers are all excellent people, and despite the above, they were great to work for.
Firm Director (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 January 2017
Company knows what it wants to do and goes after it. Clients needs are assessed and service model to provide value is developed. People are deployed and managed in their roles. No playing around. Get it done and provide value to client and revenue to firm
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – 22 Adelaide St W #200, Toronto, ON M5H 0A9 – 9 January 2017
Every day was a new day of learning and enjoying things. Management and co-workers were very supportive and understanding. The most enjoyable part was working together before the launch as a one family to give client the best.
Audit Senior (Former Employee) – Winnipeg – 20 December 2016
Winnipeg was a great office environment. The staff was very welcoming and friendly which made the transition to live in a new country a lot easier. A strong team environment made the long hours bearable and was fun working in a close knit team.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 November 2016
Not the right company for me. They tell you that they're going to "set you up for success" but my experience was anything but that. It is a tough place to navigate and you're on your own. The "coach" that was assigned to me was completely useless - i did not receive any coaching from him. It is every man for him/herself - i would not recommend this organization.
Recruitment Coordinator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 November 2016
If you love being surrounded around passionate hardworking people, Deloitte is for you. Con is there is nothing to talk about other than work - an effort to incorporate more social aspects to the team would make work more enjoyable.
Lots of career development and opportunities to discover other areas of the firm.
Industry Coordinator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 November 2016
I started my career at Deloitte and it truly was a memorable experience. It was a work hard play hard culture and when you're in your 20s that works fine. I met some amazing people there and continue to keep in touch with them.
