Samson Belair / Deloitte & Touche


http://www.deloitte.com/

Size of company: Large (More than 500 employees)

Industry: Accounting, Auditing

  • This is one of the most poorly run organizations in Canada, in my opinion. They cannot even accurately forecast their own budgets / spends so why would anyone hope they could assist others? Employees who work to support the organization are considered second class citizens and treated differently than client facing employees. Despite claims to the contrary, work life balance is often not supported, even when it can easily be accommodated. While the policies and visions say all the right things, the practical application of these fall far short. Employees are frequently not fairly compensated for the level and degree of difficulty of the work they perform. Internally it runs more like a unionized environment than a cutting edge professional services firm. Despite claims to the contrary, true innovation is slow to happen at best, and worse still often frowned upon. Their people systems and processes are archaic at best. The strength of the brand frequently attracts top talent. The reality of the life "behind the magic curtain", more frequently results in employee dissatisfaction, and high turnover of truly great resources.

This view is absolutely correct. They have a great brand, and they can not forecast their revenue Q to Q. Their internal tools for tracking client hours are pathetic, and their billing rates are close to extortion. Funny that accountants are not people persons... Not. The management and feedback to employees is non-existant. Having worked 20 years before ending up at Deloitte, I can say this is a poorly run pyramid scheme. If you can find a good partner for your tax work, Great, other wise, watch your invoices carefully... Note they were the auditor for Live Ent. Say no more...
