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.
Boring and No growth if you are a high profile EA.
Paraprofessional / EA (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 January 2018
-All the Paraprofessionals are leaving this place. They don't feel part of the team. They have one EA for 5 partners. -Partners or Managers won't explain nothing to you. Nothing. - I did not feel accomplished, job was meaningless and boring. -They are moving towards a Share Service Admin Structure. Like a call center, it is horrible. They don't even know your name. -Low pay. Only if you are there 20 years you might have an OK salary. -It is highly regimented and no place to be creative.
The Paraprofessionals are really good people.
The amazing benefits are for everybody but NOT for the EAs/Admin/Paras.
