    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Some very smart folks - the consultants were cool to work with

    Cons

    We had a large client event coming up and instead of letting me get everything prepared (under 12 hours to go), one of the managers i worked for asked me to go on a liquor "run" so that the employees could all have a happy hour at the office. I was flabbergasted. No bonuses for admins. Snotty junior partners with big chips on their shoulders. The higher ups there are pretty cool, they've already made it and treat underlings well. But the young partners and managers trying to "make their place" are very unpleasant to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give bonuses to admins.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Deloitte normally has nice offices.

    Cons

    Deloitte is filled to the brim with sociopaths, and the higher the person is in the organization the more of a sociopath they will be. Deloitte is constantly lying to its clients because its does not care about what the right thing to do, all decision making is based upon maximizing revenue.

    Deloitte does not promote people who know how to implement projects, only those who can sell. Deloitte provides terrible value, and in every case where I follow them the system has been poorly configured, documentation is lacking, etc..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice to give, Deloitte thinks they know what they are doing when they are simply corrrupt and incompetent.

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Good downtown location. Big company.

    Cons

    Toxic environment. People are slaves to their jobs, and it eats away at their ethics, morales, and humanity. Misery at its finest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Top Employer campaign is a sham and everyone knows it.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Company offers a better salary than a smaller size company, a plus for an experience. Big shiny name to write on the resume. MD office professionals made an excellent impression several times. Pleasure to deal with them.

    Cons

    New York office was more that disappointing. My application was first in a wrong department, then instead of the promise to be "matched" to what I applied for, I was forced to be in a wrong category again with a story changing over and over and over. I have several emails from recruiters with apologies for their mistakes. With that being said, I did not get a great impression about New York City Office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make recruiters explain the position requirements in a bigger detail. It looks like that they take and application and "match" it with what they want, and not what a person applied for. If a person does not qualify, it is better to know right away instead of hearing later that recruiters made mistakes and the only thing person can qualify is really something he/she does not want.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Training opportunities if you seek them out
    - Decent time-off

    Cons

    - Salaries aren't competitive enough for amount of work you do
    - Horrible management
    - Completely useless HR -- they are really only there to cover the company and don't care about employees at all. Very similar to most of management.
    - Unsavory company practices -- if you have a conscience at all, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During my time at Deloitte, every person in my orientation class has left the company. Every person had a horrible experience at Deloitte and anyone I've spoken to since my time at Deloitte has expressed similar feelings. Management has no leadership qualities and are only looking to make more money for the company so they have a good number to put on their performance evaluation.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    For the type of work and amount of work I do, the pay is good, not great, but good.

    Cons

    Oh, where do I start ?
    No one has your back; not your boss, not HR, not benefits. They have Deloitte's back, not yours. And don't even think about standing up for yourself, you will be knocked down real quick. You are set adrift. People skills is a phrase not known by Deloitte. PTO is fair, just fair. Deloitte claims to be a highly ethical firm, they certainly do not treat the employees of Workplace Services in an ethical manner. They talk the talk, it ends there. Lip service is king. This year on Employee Appreciation Day we were handed a $5 gift card to Dunkin Donuts and were expected to smile, EXCUSE ME !?!?!. Workplace Services Holiday gathering was pot luck , EXCUSE ME !?!?! They know that most of us cannot leave because we will never find this level of salary again. Oh do they ever know it !!! You will see endless breakfast, lunches and afternoon snacks being brought in for some, but not for Workplace Services, oh but we do get the leftovers, bring your tupperware !!! Some years the raises are fair, just fair. Some years they are poor.really poor. I, just like everyone else, have made mistakes in my life, taking a job at Deloitte is among the top 3. I have 9 more years until retirement. 9 more years of being treated worse than a mangy stray dog.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deloitte is corporate amerika right down the line. Management does not care about those of us in the trenches, so no advice to management, they are not listening anyway.

    Very disappointing to work as a Consultant/Senior Consultant at Deloitte Consulting LLP

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1.Travel Perks
    2. Good health insurance
    3. Flexibility to leave client services and assume an internal role in the firm

    Cons

    1. Horrible work-life balance
    2. It is a place where kiss-ass people grow who can sit, walk and dine with their bosses
    3. With the huge offshore model, it is glorified Infosys, Wipro, Cognizant. The daily morning and night offshore calls beat you up. Your day never ends as you are working round the clock with the offshore team
    4. It is encouraged to kill your personal life. You will be appreciated and promoted if you are available round the clock
    5. The offshore team is extremely aggressive as they look forward to be given an opportunity to come on-site. The competition to vie for the leadership's attention gets nasty
    5. You are not treated well when you are at the bottom most level of the food chain - i.e Business Technology Analyst and Consultant. The firm is extremely hierarchical and everyone watches their own guard. The intention is to suck up in the hierarchy whereas no one really cares about people below them in the food chain.
    6. The conversations in the firm are very hierarchy-based. A person is most likely to be addressed by his position than name
    6. Very cocky colleagues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Don't just use flexibility and predictability as blanket words, implement them in every single project nationally. Lately, it was just a farce and no project leadership ever paid attention to it
    2. Work-life balance is a misleading concept in this firm. The leadership needs to meet their managed reveue targets and to honor their commitment to the client, they will go to any extent to press the team to deliver even it means no life(I mean no life at all) for the individuals in the team

    Pros

    Good name to your resume, they can easily match whatever salary requirements you requested

    Cons

    They people are the major cons. It's a politically charged environment of idiots who lie on reviews when they have to, old people who should retire already, and young people who are trying to desperately to move up the ladder. It's a terrible environment to exist and you are ranked against your peers instead of your performance. I had a career counselor who was an idiot that never paid attention to me. I had a manager who just flat out lied to clients and employees and a talent staffing lady who tried to match me to positions I had no previous experience with. It's a stupid environment to work in and anyone who is talented leaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the company, you are what's wrong with Deloitte Federal consulting
