What has been your biggest challenge so far?
Being placed at a client where you need to add value quickly with a new project or program subject, new people and an unclear outcome of the project or program. You often experience this at Deloitte and it remains a recurring challenge.
Is it 'All work, no play' at Deloitte?
"Work hard, play hard" is a bit trite, so I'm not going to mention that either. But Deloitte is a place where:
- "Work" is sometimes "play," because some tasks/activities are really fun and exciting and give a lot of energy.
- A lot of fun things are organized. From a range of get-togethers, training sessions with your project team, your Service Line team and with Young Deloitte. My ultimate highlight is the annual Skitrip with 300+ colleagues.
- Sometimes it's just hard work, especially with deadlines. But as long as appreciation is expressed, it gives a good feeling.
What would you like to say to your future colleague?
You should come over, drink coffee (or something similar) with all kinds of people and enjoy the moment when you have nothing to do yet. Deloitte is a place where you can be busy with 1000 things at the same time. This creates a dynamic environment where you learn a lot and talent quickly emerges. Take advantage of that!
