Success Story: Madison Flotteron ’19 accepts consultant job at Deloitte
Though she’s starting her senior year at the Gabelli School next week, Madison Flotteron, BS ’19, already knows what she’ll be doing after graduation next June: beginning a full-time job as a consultant in the Deloitte risk and financial advisory group. This will hardly be Flotteron’s first experience working with Deloitte, a company she has had a good feeling about from her very first interaction.
It all started with Flotteron’s participation in the Deloitte R.I.S.E. (Risk, Issues, Solutions, and Experiences) Advisory Case Competition in 2017. She knew after completing the competitive program that “this is where I want to end up. I want to be a part of a competitive firm that I feel valued in.”
Flotteron felt valued in the R.I.S.E. program thanks to the networking experience that came along with it. Each competing R.I.S.E. group was assigned an advisor from Deloitte advisory. Advisors took time to help with the competition over the phone and at Deloitte’s office at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
“Everyone was so willing and happy to help me and my team,” said Flotteron. “All of the people I worked with were so knowledgeable in their field and they gave me advice on the competition, as well as future career advice.”
On the heels of that competition, Flotteron was invited to interview for an internship at Deloitte for the following summer. “To say that I was excited when I received my internship offer at Deloitte would be an understatement,” said Flotteron.
During her internship this summer, she worked on an engagement for a financial services client, which was geared towards internal audit and assurance; prepared agendas for high-level kickoff meetings; and sat in on meetings and calls with the client. She even had time to lead and organize a networking and fundraising event for interns and professionals. Through this game night, she helped raise over $550 for the homeless.
Flotteron has been impressed by the level to which she’s seen Deloitte invest in its employees, including through a training facility in Texas called Deloitte University, which Flotteron had the opportunity to visit this summer. “I have nothing but positive things to say about Deloitte and I am very excited to start working there full-time next year.”
