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.
Great work/life balance at times. During busy season, hard to have a work/life balance. Have the ability to control the amount of work you want (some people prefer to work more whereas other prefer to work less)
Senior Accountant, Audit (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 6 September 2017
Working at Deloitte will provide lots of exposure to various clients, industries, breadth and depth of work but expectation is to put in long days, nights and weekends which means that soon enough the work/life balance is ruined. People stay for as long as they need to, but some who are capable and willing stick it out and are rewarded in the form of inadequate pay until they become manager/senior manager/partner if ever.

Deloitte is a unique place to work, its fluent and dynamic office layout makes it really easy to join and start working right away, very welcoming staff, warm colorful walls and decoration with awesome leisure facilities, what else one would expect from his office !!
Valuations Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 July 2017
Great company for conformists with no desire to challenge the status quo. Much of its services are value destroying rather than value creating.
No amount of amenities in an office can make up for the lacklustre work and the office politics. Brutal. A smaller, collegial environment where you are actually accountable to clients and not perpetuating a bloated corporate behemoth would be much more rewarding and productive for the economy.
No amount of innovation in your "professional services" can account for the fact that the service lines here are redundant and no value is created. Your merely an overpaid consultant with no real work experience.
Tax Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 July 2017
Deloitte is a great company to work for because of the people that work there. The staff is supportive and ambitious for all the projects. They pay great attention to detail and ensure their clients are satisfied with the delivered work.
