Very competitive and required long hours of working hours, heavy pressure driven.
What I do in general: auditing. Review on different companies' financial statements, including Balance Sheet, Income Statements and Cash Flow. Furthermore, I do reviews on companies' internal control procedures, for examples, SOP, risk control points, inventory managements, treasury procedures, bank transactions procesures, etc.
What I do everyday at work: I am the auditor in charge for different engagements, which means, I am required to do the followings:
1. act as the bridge between the client and the company. I need to know what the managers/partners' revision key sectors for this year on this client, then, bring a team of auditors to the client's office, performed various of audit review works.
2. manage and control my audit team staffs and their work status.
3. review the work performed by my team staffs, and make sure it is all up to manager's review standards.
4. follow up on the engagements on all sorts of revision works, paper works, new review works on various of financial issues.
What I learn the most from the work:
1. time management.
2. prioritize my work and have a control on my working status.
3. handle myself and work under hard pressure within limited time.
4. client relationship improvements.
5. financial analytical perspectives.
优点I become very organized on all my works, minds and when I am ananlyzing any problems.

Managed various statistical data from computer files, records, reports or from other sources.
Interviewed clients to gather information about the business processes, controls and the accounting methods to determined effectiveness.
Suggested improvements to business process and operational controls.
Turning off all lights and locking the door of temporary office, I have been the last one leaving my project site after 12 o’clock for consecutive 10 days ever since I participated in the auditing of one big state-owned enterprise in Wuhan as an intern of Deloitte. Over 14 hours of conducting auditing works everyday from collecting evidence from piles of ledgers and vouchers to deeply querying with the customer for their accounting methods does not exhaust my energy but further lights up my passion for auditing and enables me to determine auditor as my short term career objective.

For my career object, I want to start with Audit & Assurance. Learning from school in an academic way and from the intern experience with actual practices in workplace, I realize that audit is a subject that based on the fundamental understanding of how a corporate works day by day. In order to be a decision-maker who should comprehend the basic daily operations and improve them to an upper-level, I will gradually gain experiences, grow my professional skills, and drive the very potential I have with Deloitte. Additionally, the culture here is what I fond of. To make an impact and always be the reliable and trustworthy one for work and for life turn into another career object I would love to approach. With solid comprehension of knowledge, unstoppable goal-achieving determination, and indestructible teamwork, I believe that Deloitte is the place that enhancing and delivering my ambition.
Everyday when i arrive at the office, the first thing i need to do is to update the auditing system used for group working. And then the leader will assign work to every group member. I am mainly in charge of assisting with the other associates and seniors.
I have learned some auditing procedure and communication skills.
The working environment is pretty good. Other workmates are all willing to help new coming companions. We are willing to share with each other. And everyone emphasizes on efficiency.
The most part of this job is to catch up with others' pace because at the beginning i am not familiar with the working procedure. But after a short period with my effort i can do very good in assistance work.
优点I can join different group and learn how to cooperate with different people
I was an intern in Deloitte during their busy season. Every day was a hard day. We got lots of work to do. Usually, our work time was from 8:30 am to 11:30 pm. Although the amount of work was depressing, we actually had a fun time. All the co-workers were professional and fun. They taught me a lot of knowledge that I didn't learn from the school, such as using Word and Excel to produce multiple confirming letters at one time, using vlookup to find out the errors. Our team leader, the AIC, was strict and professional. He had a very good sense of time control. When I got any problems, he would point out where I missed. Although the work was tough, I really had a good time and appreciated everything they taught me.
优点Free lunch, fun and knowledgeable co-workers, business trip allowance
The people who work in Deloitte are very efficient. And I learnt a lot from them. I think the key of working efficiently is teamwork. Every person is assigned some different tasks. In order to be efficiently, each person work carefully and minimize the error rate, so that they do not need to spend a lot of time to recorrect the work they have done, and they can continue on their next mission. It's impressive for them to work efficiently and accurately, so I asked them how they did that. They said it was just one of their habit in their daily routine. From then on, I tried to do everything efficiently and accurately even in the small thing. For example, I tried to schedule what I needed to do today and tomorrow, set a limited time to do homework or paper.
Very good place to work, typical day at work included talking to clients and related interest groups
Learned a lot about auditing especially special audit which included liquidation report
management was wonderful, they were professional and trusted their employees to make the right choice
Co-workers were extremely friendly, often ate lunch together and participated in group events
hardest part of the job was sometimes the hours was long, during some audits there were considerably amount of over time and requiring its employees to stay very late
the most enjoyable part of the job was working with co-workers as a team and deal with problems and situations together

*Recensione su Deloitte Consulting*
Conosco questa azienda da diversi anni e sento pertanto di poter fornire un giudizio oggettivo.
Si tratta di un ambiente di lavoro in cui bisogna entrare da neolaureati, apprendere le basi di come si lavora in team e poi fuggire a gambe levate.
Se si entra nel turbinio della carriera, non vi è modo di uscirne e superati i 30 anni trovare un'alternativa nel mondo del lavoro è veramente difficile, dato che il lavoro del consulente non fornisce strumenti specifici ed una preparazione verticale e questo rende molto difficile un riposizionamento.
Detto ciò, procedo per punti:
- STIPENDIO: inadeguato. Non sarà mai troppo alto per compensare lo stile di vita malsano che si conduce, la mancanza totale di riferimenti reali per la propria crescita personale e professionale e non remunera mai o quasi mai (le eccezioni sono per chi ha la spalle protette) gli straordinari (che invece sono LA REGOLA). Sai come entri (con i recruiter) e dopodiché sei abbandonato a te stesso, vista la totale mancanza di supporto.
- AMBIENTE DI LAVORO: tossico e pesante. Sebbene l'età media sia molto bassa, fra colleghi non sempre di respira aria di collaborazione. I momenti di contatto sono pochi e fugaci, le persone sono tristi, ingrigite e oppresse dai propri manager. Questa atmosfera è figlia di una tradizione che voleva che nella consulenza si usassero metodi da campo militare (così si spiega l'ostile atteggiamento del management), ma non tesi alla cresci
优点Contratti a tempo indeterminato
缺点Worklife balance, management, scarsa preparazione, arroganza, straordinari non pagati, poca trasparenza, nessun rispetto per le risorse
I never imagined myself having a career in audit. No one in my immediate family had taken that route and coming out of high school, I knew very little about it.
My father, who has an accounting background encouraged me to apply which I did, with no real expectation of getting accepted into any firm.
On the 5th of January 2009 I started at Deloitte & Touche - Zimbabwe. I also enrolled for a Bachelor's degree in Accounting Science with the University of South Africa in the same year, an institution which offers long distance learning/ correspondence. This enabled me to work full time at Deloitte and obtain my degree at the same time.
As you start off in the firm, the roles and responsibilities, as expected are small. The firm is structured in such a way that each team member receives on the job training which enables him/her to not only carry out the task assigned, but with each assignment, prepare him/her to one day run an audit engagement as the field senior, supervisor or manager.
The objective of each engagement is set out from the on-set, be it an assurance or agreed upon procedures engagement. I work in teams, from as small as 2 to as big as eight (8). Each individual has a role to play on the engagement to ensure the objective is achieved in the timelines set - from planning the audit, carrying out substantive work, reporting and communications with management.
What does a typical day at work entail? I am currently an audit senior at Deloitte and a typic

Be sure your background is a fit for the role you applied to and beyond... in case it doesn't work for you.
...I was hired by Deloitte for a specific role/project ONLY and my background is different than the work I was actually expected to perform which of course I learned after the fact (after the interview and initial project placement). I was out right lied to during the interview regarding what they wanted (background wise).
After a 1 yr...I decided I had enough of the abuse and through researching internal projects I saw that my resume was only about a 10% DIRECT(transferable skills) match out of more than 1000 internal projects which meant I stood little chance for another role internally because you would need to be at least a 60% match to justify your candidacy to the hiring manager(s). AND YES your asked to provide a written justification for internal projects you apply to (outside of your resume details)....
.....After a year this was NOTHING more than a WASTE OF TIME and disappointment. My project lead was more terrible than words can express and he forced me to leave my project ( putting me back in a bench status) so he could back fill my position quickly. All of this because during the monthly one-on-one session with my lead, shared with him I wanted to be in a role where my skills matched and where I could be of value. The Deloitte team talked a lot about "communication" being an issue among the group and the client, but our team contributed to about 95% of the problem and of course this was without any accountability of that because our team was perfect.
Deloitte seemed like a great opportunity to grow professionally, but this company has been nothing but a huge disappointment. I strongly believe that is because of the department I am in and the "leadership" they have in place. Individuals that have been placed in Team Lead positions have zero to minimal call center experience. They do not implement or even know how to utilize call center metrics. They do not keep track of the reps work, i.e. amount of calls taken, number of tickets worked, ASA, AHT, etc. The company itself doesn't even know how to accurately calculate an agent's utilization rates because - wait for it - they've "never done this before". This creates an air of contention within the department. Since agents are not tracked or held accountable for the amount of work they do, there are inherently lazy individuals that take advantage of the lack of supervision. The reps with a solid work ethic are the ones that wind up picking up the slack, without any recognition. The head honcho has absolutely NO call center experience, which I was made aware of only after accepting the job offer. I'm pretty sure they gave him this department because he's been with the company for so long and was long overdue for a promotion. He's more concerned with bringing in additional clients than developing the staff he has on hand.The team leads are tasked with helping him create client presentations and offerings - which should be the department head's job, not theirs.

Hej alla ni som läser om vår upplevelse som vår son råkade ut för hos Deloitte Stockholm där han arbetade som skattejurist.
Han råkade ut för en oerhörd svår och komplex olycka och låg på sjukhus och eftervård under ca ett år innan han började arbeta igen på 25%.
Eftersom vår son låg länge i koma och på intensiven med starka läkemedel under lång tid så blev vi som föräldrar hans röst gentemot arbetsgivaren Deloitte.
Hans kvinnliga chef som vi trodde visade stor omtanke om honom under den svåra sjukhustiden och som vi släppte in i familjen med öppen och välkomnande famn.
De löften hon gav oss var att om han skulle bli så bra att han kunde börja sin rehab hos Deloitte så skulle Deloitte göra allt som stod i deras makt för att hjälpa honom tillbaka.
Det första var att utreda hans specifika rehab behov och tillsammans med Försäkringskassan och företagshälsovårdens läkare noggrant ta reda på vilken hjälp de skulle bistå med.
När han började sin rehabilitering på 25% blev vi samtidigt tydligt informerade av hans chef att vi nu var helt bortkopplade och att vi nu inte längre kunde få någon information från Deloitte.
Vi litade givetvis på att de skulle göra så som vi tidigare blivit informerade om och som dessutom är ett lagstadgat ansvar för företag i Sverige enl Socialförsäkringsbalken.
Vår son kämpade på med att försöka komma tillbaka till sin tidigare position och efter ca något år minskade han sin sjukskrivning till 50%. Detta gjorde han tydligen helt på eget initiativ. Ett

Ok company for fresher.But not good for development projects.
Brand name. Looks good on resume.
Rewards and spot awards.
Latest tools to work upon.
Projects are good. But do read the cons before being happy about this.
Work culture is slightly better than other service based companies in India.
The projects are randomly alloted. It depends on your luck if you are able to get the work that is related to your primary skill. Your Resource Manager won't listen to you regarding that.
You have to know people in the organization. Be it for projects, or for appraisals or Firm Initiatives. The firm calls it networking. To some extent it is good but in the name of this 'networking’, people resort to politics.
You have to show off the work that you are doing. Even if you are not doing something meaningful, show off would help here. You need to be in good books of managers and SMs in order to get good quality work.
Appraisal seems like a joke. You have to raise snapshots for the projects that you have done and you get a scatter plot where your project managers give you ratings. No verbal communication is done. You won't even know how and why you were given that rating for those 2 questions. And then your coach would present that plot to the team who will be doing your appraisal. Your coach doesn't even knows what you have done, unless you keep giving that person frequent updates :/
You cannot trust anyone at an organisation like D

Deloitte Hyderabad- Good for freshers but not for experienced employees. Deloitte spoils you with all the goodies and benefits and makes you believe that you are working for a great company. As a result of this every fresher would say its a great company to work for however the problem is that they have not worked in any other company so they will understand the work culture. It is embedded in the brains of the freshers that Deloitte culture is the best and they tend to get used to it making them difficult to adjust in any other company or work environment. "Learning" and "personal and professional development" is a big problem. If you are talented, then prepare to undergo extreme office politics from your colleagues and vice versa.In fact most of the managers would encourage the same. In case your manager is an extremely "learned" personality with "multiple degrees" like CA, MBA, CFA or CPA then you can expect some good management in the team otherwise you are in trouble.Those kind of employees are preferred who would just listen and follow orders. In simple words - dont use your brain. Outsiders (experienced professionals) are not treated the same way as internal employees are treated and that is openly visible. I have 9 years of exp in three companies including 2 Big 4s and from what I have gone through, seen and heard from my friends in various departments in Deloitte - 'MOST' of the promotions happen based on your tenure at the firm and not on your talent as a result of
You'll learn a lot, but they want great work for cheap. Very unorganized and unprofessional.
I started working for Deloitte as a contractor. Things started off great at first. My supervisor was easy to get along with as well as the team lead. It turns out my boss was just trying to make himself look good. When I showed a mastery of the basic skills, he put me up for a promotion to a different team that I did not want, nor that would fit around my personal life. When my health started to suffer, I asked to be transferred back. He told me it would look bad if I were to do so. I had to bring up my poor health as a reason, which I should not have had to in the first place.
I ended up then being transferred as a relief employee when other teams' workloads were too much. Towards the end, I got placed with a super awesome team, but only had them for a month. In the end, I worked two extra days and found out I had been laid off. The days were compensated, but again, lack of communication was a problem.
The first set of managers were extremely hard to deal with. They were very unorganized and would notify you of changes last minute and expect you to be okay with them. It was hard to plan anything. The 2nd team lead I had was very unprofessional and kept telling me to work past the time I got off. This team lead also loved to throw extra work at me and expect me to get it done same day. They wrote nasty emails if you didn't get it done or tried to explain to them you were finishing up work from the previous day.
If you learn new skills, they will not compensate you for it
优点Learn different skills and programs while on a project
缺点Want great work for cheap, don't care if you get paid on time, will give you a "promotion, " and double your workload without proper compensation, unprofessional work environment, lack of communication is a frequent problem, expect you to change your personal life schedule around them at the drop of a hat.
My work revolves around those making Payment Protection Insurance Claims. I have my own caseload and a typical day at work generally consists of following a set chase cycle where I am requesting for information from the lenders, policy providers and in addition information from the claimants.
For the files that I already have, I have to type letters to these parties and also enter information on a spreadsheet. Then I have to send the letters once signed by my line-manager via post.
We have a set database which reminds us of the chase letters we need to send each day. Therefore most of the day consists of completing those tasks.
In the mid-morning we get new cases. The number varies, as on someday we can get one and on busy days we can get up to 20! For these new files which we call 'initial requests', I have to enter information on an internal database (Siebel), re-organize the file, scan and photocopy the declaration from the claimants (as well as marriage/death certificates) and send first request letters to the parties mentioned above- after they are signed.
Throughout the day I have to answer calls from claim management companies and claimants who would be inquisitive on what they need to do to help their claim be processed ASAP. I also receive post from the lenders and policy providers, so I link them to their file from my caseload cabinet.
On a daily basis I have a target of handing in 4 cases. A 'workable' case means that I have the information from the all mentio
