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.
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.
Associate - Mid-Market M&A (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 August 2016
Great company with a great future as growth has been consistent even in down markets. Given the geographic presence, diversification lends itself to an environment where people can be challenged on a variety of projects and don't have to be as worried about job security.
Applied to this company so many times. No luck, I assume it would be harder to get in but CPA students should at least get interviews. The way they advertised at the wine & cheese as if they welcome everyone. But as a former graduate from U of W, I didn't get to be part of the on campus hiring. So maybe CPA students like me are just doomed idk. I unsubscribed from their career notification, too hard to get into this company.
Sr Manager, Finance (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 April 2015
Partners make a client distinctions between those who are client facing and those who don't. There is an internal transformation that has been going on for ages and no tangible benefits from it are perceived. There is a great group of professionals to learn from and poor management that are more concern about appearances rather than managing the company. Quite an isolated job most of the time and a lack clear definition of me roles. The benefits offered are fine.
Group of professionals, Benefits
Lack of work/life balance, Poor internal management, Partners seems to have such a focus on clients that they forget about managing the company
It was a wonderful place to work with lots of wonderful people. I was working in a new department, which didn't know how many staff they needed, so I was told in advance, I have a year contract but could end before if not enough work for everyone.
Was assigned a budy but when she got too busy, she didn't have time to guide me.
Great benefits despite being on a contract with an assigned laptop and smart phone
Not assigned a desk, must reserve your desk every two weeks, can't keep the same desk
Learning Coordinator (Current Employee) – Toronto – 29 August 2016
Deloitte is a great employer that has provided me with a tremendous amount of development. Deloitte cares about more than just the bottom line. As an employee of Deloitte I have taken part in many fund raising and volunteering opportunities within the community.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Downtown, Toronto, ON – 15 May 2013
Worked extensively with Excel spreadsheets, typed several invoices and proofread documents. You learn to multi-task quickly, often with tight deadlines, in this environment while at the same time paying close attention to details. Management strives for work/life balance and co-workers are great back-up support and fun to work with. The hardest part of the job is to fit everything into one day.
Great benefits, great people.
Pressure to complete large volume of work on a timely basis.
Staff Accountant (Co-op) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 May 2016
Extensive learning during the busy audit season of 2016. Worked with an excellent team of experienced professionals. Although there was no work life balance, as a co-op student, I learned a lot during my 4 month term
