Life at Deloitte
Roger Hennis, Barbados
"The opportunity to be a part of the largest global Consulting practice, and gain knowledge and experience is priceless."
What do you like most about your role?
Consulting is a field where one is required to understand client issues and then figure out a way (using Deloitte methodologies and organizational experience) to be able to assist clients with their most complex problems. The problems and issues are never exactly the same, so it is always exciting to figure out the pieces of the puzzle and gratifying to be able to bring value to our clients.
What attracted you to Deloitte?
When I was first contacted about a possible role in Deloitte and researched the organization, I was truly impressed with the depth of expertise and knowledge that was Deloitte Consulting.

Deloitte hires the top talent in its market and offers them access to the opportunities to do their best work and succeed.
