Bad work culture/Lack of good projects

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Deloitte LLP full-time

ProsGreat benefits. All luxuries of a startup like free food, great workstations in a big company.

ConsVery high recruiting for the bench. Many people are most times on the bench. Not ideal if you want to work and learn. Overly concerned about utilization. Deloitte has brought a culture of sucking up to management and there is a lot of 'networking' which is now necessary to get work. The standard of new recruits is bad due to a need to keep the bench strength healthy.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of always giving work to the same people, actually cycle people on the bench. No need to recruit so over your project needs that people sit idle. Not everyone is a 'networker', some people demonstrate by example (by their work, if they get it that is). Increase your standard of interviews..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

HR Problems

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Deloitte LLP

ProsI enjoyed working with client service people, but I was offended by HR about S/PII handling.

ConsAfter I completed an employee application form for my background check and I provided all of the information as the application agreement to contact former employers. The agreement stated that when my former employer is out of business, W-2 forms are requested and any data privacy and background check concerns, misstatement, and redress were encouraged to contact the perspective employer. D&T on-boarding team told me to submit a W-2 form to conduct a salary history check and this is under the corporate policy for new hires. W-2 forms contain a lot of S/PII more than the salary information and I consulted with the current newly hired D&T employees, but they never submitted a W-2 form besides the employment application form completion, which I did. My understanding is that D&T can conduct a salary check and whatever they wish from former employers upon the direct contact as a part of the background check like other companies. And all of my previous employers exist and available for the background check.
After I had provided all of the information in the employment application form and urged D&T on-boarding team to contact the former employers to ask any question including the salary check, D&T on-boarding team told me that I was uncooperative to its request. I was very offended by their excess PII request beyond the employee application agreement.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider to refrain from the excess S/PII collection from HR from new-hires. Why is the background form completion & agreement not enough? And please do not target the request to specific person. Thank you.

HR Problems - I also encountered the similiar case.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Deloitte LLP

ProsI like my team members.

ConsI also encountered the similar case. Even if the background investigation team communicated with all of the former employers and concluded the background check, the on-boarding team requested me to submit a W-2 form further.

Advice to Senior ManagementI know that if former employers are out of business, a W-2 form is required to verify the work status. And to ask a W-2 form is not illegal as long as D&T requires it from everyone, but this is not the case. Please understand a W-2 form contains a lot of sensitive information. I think that the complete backgournd application information is satisfactory unless the former employers are out of business. Otherwise, why don't you collect a W-2 form instead of asking the background application information to everyone. One on-boarding team member mentioned me that to collect a W-2 form is much easier to verify instead of contacting a former employer to ease her job. Please be senstive to ask and collect excess personal sensitive data. Usually companies respect the PII seriously. I was disappointed by the on-boarding team to do this.

Slavedrivers

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Deloitte LLP full-time

Prosnot many, maybe the vacation days and three dental checkups a year...

Conseight days a week schedule. unhappy co-workers.

Advice to Senior Managementgrow up and realize overworking employees IS NOT a win-win.. also, take control of managers and senior managers who are out of control. drop the old-boys mentality, it does not serve you. listen to employee grievances, they are your lifeblood. Finally, foster a culture of growth, not slave labor.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good name for a resume, otherwise unimpressed

Consultant (Current Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

I have been working at Deloitte LLP full-time for more than a year

Pros- Good name to put on resume
- Good pay
- They're footprint gets them business, results are iffy at best

Cons- Highly bureaucratic and inflexible culture
- The consultants are so overworked (no life outside of Deloitte) that they are incredibly unpleasant to deal with
- Cult like atmosphere
- Work product isn't any better than medium or small sized firms can deliver. Deloitte just has the clout, the money and political pull to get contracts on that fact alone. In terms of quality, actual capabilities and professionalism, the average employee there is probably less effective than you would find elsewhere.
- The projects I saw were mostly corpro-government types. Deloitte is so big because they are so closely aligned with the out of control US Gov spending. It's hard to work at a place when you see that their $800 a night dinners at 4 star restaurants and multi-million dollar a month 'consulting,' contracts are what is destroying the entire economic future of a nation.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn the present economic landscape with massive deficit spending, Deloitte doesn't have much to worry about

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great people generally though a lot of bureaucracy

Federal Consultant (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Deloitte LLP full-time for more than 3 years

ProsReally smart people, lots of variety in type of work and clients, great benefits, progressive policies regarding family-planning and LGBT communities. Generally people are not only very smart and hard-working, but Deloitte makes sure to recruit personable people who are also great to be around in and out of the office. Deloitte also invests a lot in its talent in terms of continuing education and training.

ConsFederal is looked down upon and not appropriately compensated, too much red tape creates risk aversion and busy work. There are opportunities to move between member firms, though it can be very difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementBy the time the market gets back on its feet Deloitte needs to start better compensating its employees andcompensate accurately. The federal practice especially also needs to recognize that an MBA is not necessarily the most valuable degree in the world, in fact MPPs, JDs etc. are equally if not more valuable to the work we do in federal and this should be recognized in our income.
