What makes it great: This Big 4 firm is an advocate of lifelong learning: Some 50,000 Deloitte professionals from 70 countries have descended on Deloitte University, a massive two-year-old campus in Westlake, Texas that offers classes on topics like leadership, accounting -- even cooking.

Employees can also get tuition assistance for courses taken elsewhere, enjoy a partially paid sabbatical, or pursue international assignments at the company. Public service-minded types can work with government clients on pressing issues like cyber innovation and health care.

What they're looking for: The ability to collaborate and solve problems are key to scoring a job here.

"People who do well at Deloitte communicate well, are excellent team contributors, are results-focused, and are highly motivated to serve clients with distinction," says Kent Kirch, global director of recruitment.

Deloitte hired more than 54,000 people worldwide last year and expects to recruit about the same number this year, according to Kirch. Demand is particularly strong for talent in emerging markets, he says. --L.G.
