    Work work work with no reward

    Senior Assistant (Current Employee)

    ProsYou work with a fantastic group of peers and make friends for life.

    ConsUpper management does not care about personal growth or work-life balance. All the company is concerned about is lining the partners pockets with money.

    Heartless and WAY TOO MUCH Office Politics

    QRM (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsCoworkers; volunteer events (Impact Day); firm values; firm's investment into their employees

    Conssalary, office poitics

    Many people take credit for work other people really did in order to advance in the company or to protect themselves from lay-offs.

    It doesn't matter if you 're a great employee or a poor employee. All that matters is that your manager thinks you're working (even if you spend 30 hours a week on Farmville). It's more important to spend 40 hours being friends with your manager than it is actually doing your job, especially if your manager is a PPD (Principal, Partner, Director)..

    Deloitte will not hesitate to fire you OVER THE PHONE despite a satisfactory performance review. Deloitte is trigger happy with the at-will employment option. Deloitte will shut down your account so you don't even have a chance to look for other opportunities with the firm or say good bye to friends.

    Deloitte does not want women in their 30s who may have babies. Even upon their return, many women are terminated after a year or not given any assignments so that they can be up for termination due to "performance issues" (e.g., you're utilization sucks even though it's because the person assigning you work is too busy travelling around the US to suck up to PPDs).

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that people claiming credit for their work actually worked on it rather than just "project managing" (e.g., watching the progress of work product by others and being the first to claim credit or throw people under the bus).

    Make sure employees who do their job remain with the firm and employees who abuse the telecommuting are investigated and ferretted out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Life is hell here, stupid managers

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Camp Hill, PA

    ProsYou will experience extreme bad and unprofessional environment.
    You will come to know even such stupid people can be manager, just because he is having some domain knowledge.
    You will get some good feeling by seeing contractor is treated even worst and feel at least you are treating better.

    ConsYou will compelled to work in more than 15 hours a day, manager will calculate how much you have to sleep . almost all Saturdays and Sundays... they will expect for. If they know the logic of some code they will say it is 5 min job and check your status in every 10 min. you will have to give excuse for leaving office at 8 PM .. like please let me go I have to for some shopping, and all people will look at you like you got change to leave in half time.
    All people who is working here either searching for other job or knows he can not get anything in market and have to survive here and do some politics, such type of person will show to management like you are stupid and he is genius, and management promote such person as management might know he can not leave.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire some good manager from market with good management skill.
    Treat people like humans.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Absolutely Terrible

    Audit Assistant (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat marketing to pull the best talent out of school. Very driven co-workers.

    ConsAn absolute roll of the dice on what senior/ manager you receive. Most are promoted way too quickly and have no idea what they are doing. No incentive for seniors to train you as the engagement may only be a month and thats the last time you will ever see them. I was in financial services on the most sought after client. I was very "blue chip" coming out of school if such a term exist and was very disappointed in the absolute lack of structure and culture of blame game. Create as much connections as possible before entering this shark pit because if you are not on the right client its all about who the senior can effiectively blame. Also make sure you have FAR and Audit completed on the CPA exam prior to starting it will be the greatest development towards your success and convidence on an engagement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting a culture of blame game and spend that time developing candidates. Allow seniors to evaluated on product as well as development.

    When people hire their loved ones, the employees pay

    Document and Creative Services (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, 5 weeks time off, good health insurance. The support staff salaries are generous.

    ConsSTINGY with raises. The whole time i was there, no christmas bonus or party for us regular folks, but upper management didnt let that stop them. There is very little room to move or grow unless you have a benefactor who is willing to make things happen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't allow employees to drink at lunch and come back sloshed

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Too toxic to handle

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros--Learn a lot

    --If you search hard, you find some truly outstanding people ( too bad they leave ASAP)

    Cons--Hours are inhuman; not just a whiny complaint, busy season is regularly 80-100 hours with a lot of people staying til 4 am; it's a weird competition to see who can stay the longest with bitter senior managers saying they stayed for x amount of hours when they were consultants ( yah you walked uphill in the snow, I get it)

    --some partners and senior managers are totally unprofessional in their interactions

    --low pay

    --there is no work/life balance regardless of what the kool aid says

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have no advice because this is how things have been running for so long they will never change

    Hypothetical expectation, no family life,, weekends. High politics, work only on internal initiative and rest is not imp

    Database Administrator (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsWell known brand, office is good with many exceptions. Time - off policy is really good.

    ConsThis company has emphasize in show-off and no real technical strength. Of-course exceptions are every where.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart focusing on technical resources and their work-life balance, reward policies, to much show-off and loosing focus on technical side and technical resources may not be fruitful to company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I truly wish I had done my homework!

    Operations Analyst (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsI loved the idea of working from home. Particularly when the nearest office is a 90 minute commute. Pay is great.

    ConsNo amount of money can makeup for lack of respect to the individual, miscommunications, backstabbing environment that completely lacks ethics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'm shocked to see 68% of your employees recommend you. In November your rating was in the tank and the reviews were more aligned with truth. I would recommend that you find out how your managers treat the people that report into them. If you can do it anonymously all the better so that there is no retaliation. Because if you don't I can guarantee there will be retaliation. They are all about covering themselves when there are errors. They do not take responsiblity for their own mistakes. Particularly in Development and Training - a branch of your Talent & Development. They pulled off getting a great deal of work from me, took the credit for it, and then let me go for an error they committed and that they pinned on me.

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

    Worst 2 years and 2 days...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHaving Deloitte on your resume opens many doors for other opportunities.

    ConsDuring busy season, there is no such thing as work-life-balance. Unless someone takes a personal interest in you (which is rare) it is hard to learn and grow. Too often you're told "see what was done last year" without any further guidance or explanation. Robots.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look around at those leaving - an entire team, from Auditor to Manager under the same Senior Manager quit. There is no appreciation of current employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
