You learn a lot; long hours
Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 13, 2016
It's public accounting, so long hours are expected, but Deloitte micromanages your hours. If you take a sick day, you're sure to get an email from some resource manager asking why your charge hours for that week weren't higher. They pile on the internal meetings on top of all the client work, so you never have time to get things done. If you enjoy things like sleep or seeing your family, this isn't the place for you.
If you're an eager beaver with nothing better to do than work, this might be your place. There are some opportunities for advancement early in your career, but they are working hard to grow the manager parking lot, and partners don't retire until forced to do so, so there is less movement at the top.
Benefits; smart people
Very long hours, micromanagement
