    Pros

    Deloitte is great for someone who likes a constantly changing environment where they want to expand their skill set and work is their only/primary responsibility.

    Cons

    No work-life balance and the company cares more about their bottom-line than their employees. Expect to have long work hours (with no overtime pay) and long commutes. Also a highly competitive culture where people care more about getting ahead than their coworkers (in other words, watch your back).

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees as people rather than resources and money signs. This will stimulate employee loyalty and reduce over-turn costs.

    Cons

    Worst ever work culture in my 10 year career. Managers have no people management skills. Managers treat direct reports in a very unprofessional manner. Pay is below standards. Too much of documentation than valuable solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Please your perspective of Management. We are in 21st century and you are dealing with Millennium resources not Gen X resources.

    Pros

    Firm offers decent intern pay, as well as a few talented, driven individuals. Summer time is slow, so the job is very easy (if you're happy being bored most of the time, thinking about being a partner one day). Great opportunities to network with other interns.

    Cons

    This firm is pathetic. People are mostly average to less than average, as far as "top" business firms go. Only the partners seem to understand how to meet and greet an individual, let alone take any real-world initiative. Recruiters mostly lie to get you to sign the contract. If something sounds fishy, then it's probably not true. "Solve real world business problems" = "work on a mainframe os from 1992 for the majority of your summer." "Easily switch between business units" = "No, it's actually harder now cause you learned how to use a computer program from 1992, and we only use that in audit." Frankly, I feel ashamed to go into the office most days. Work is mundane, people aren't driven, and project scope is on the micro-scale, often revolving around support tasks that any temp could do. No client interaction whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lie to people during the hiring process. Bring in detail oriented people for the mundane, detail oriented jobs. Consider telling the truth so students/new-hires don't pass up better opportunities elsewhere, not doing so just creates another disgruntled employee.


  7. It's A Shame

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employs a lot of people Has a long history, but when you feel the need to change your name every decade or so, you have a corporate culture problem.

    Cons

    80% of their direct hires are not U.S. citizens. It allows them to hire ultra-cheap and jettison any and all back to their homelands. They expect 10 to 18 hours a day of your time and whenever you get home they expect you to study their corporate procedures and policies (which you will be tested on) in order to remain employed and advance within the company. Most Americans they employ only hang around long enough to have a nice bullet on their resume and leave as fast as they can. Deloitte has two long running contracts with the state of Mass. and the state of PA. They won these contracts in 2003, and were supposed to convert their systems from mainframe to mainframe being used as a data-store/server with a new front-end in JAVA and/or Oracle. More than ten years later neither has been completed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to fool people about your hiring practices If you want people to work more than 8 hours you must be willing to pay them for those excess hours. Hire more Americans than you do people from other countries, or at least be 100% honest about it.

    Pros

    When they buy up agencies they have a lot of great talent and great sub-cultures. Exposure to some good big brands. No issues with lack of software/technology. Ok benefits. Lots of travel all over the US so you get to see a lot of great cities. Good office location. Pays pretty fair market value for designers.

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance. Pretty much killed the culture of every agency they buy. Watched the best talent walk out the door for 2 years. Some of the brands they work with are pretty questionable at best. Their philosophy is that we tell the clients what they need, we never should ask the clients what they want. This is how the consultancy seems to pride themselves. This is at odds with how the design agency world operates. Their annual review process is brutal and based mostly on just subjective discussion among PPDs who have not actually worked with the talent at hand. There is no management for disciplines, they don't really believe in middle-management. Instead look forward to a succession of 3 or 4 PPDs to tell you when you did something wrong (and only when you did something wrong).

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be an agency by buying agencies. You can't maintain their culture or talent. Your annual review process is brutal. Question what value having so many PPDs brings. For every engagement there seems to be a PPD at the project level, client level, and industry level, why? If you want to be an agency in parts you need to be organized and managed like an agency.

    Pros

    Overall Deloitte is a very good brand and they take care of their employees in every aspect. They have long term and lot of projects. There is no doubt on it. Its a recommended company overall. However, you may find mismanagement, corruption in some places / projects.

    Cons

    Group of few powerful people (friends) sitting in cabins are rulers here, they care only for themselves and their careers. Treat other people like slaves, its evident even in their body language. They can hire any contractor for any position and fire any contractor anytime (depends on relationship with contractor and vendor). If anyone raises any concern about anything and asks for change or flexibility in the environment then life becomes hell here.

    Advice to Management

    1. Providing daily dinners to team and expecting a long work hours is not a best solution to wrong estimates, bad quality and missed/changed requirements. 2. Networking events are not meant only for drinks and food. You need to talk friendly and build confidence in your team and bond with all team (Bonding happens only between Management, Partners & Directors)

    Pros

    Great benefits, 6 weeks of vacation, an expense account they are very forgiving about.

    Cons

    This is not a place to be a designer. This is a place to be a consultant. If you want to be a traditional business consultant, it's perfect. But if you're a creative, Deloitte Digital is a wrong path to go down. Deloitte Digital buys design studios and then strips them of every piece of their culture, bit by bit, until you don't recognize what it once was. Deloitte Digital cares about hours billable and pleasing the client, not what's best for consumers. This environment creates what I like to call "create atrophy".

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying design agencies. Get rid of your performance review system. Let designers present their own work to clients.

    Pros

    There aren't that many pros. If you're keen on pursuing a career in consulting, find a smaller firm that cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Good people are hard to find
