    Good firm, good people - heavy on compliance and too much HR nonsense

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsPeople are great and they have some of the best consulting practices in the world (also, size has its advantages).

    ConsVery risk averse, pay is sometimes not comparable to other firms, depending on role, and the HR group is a lot of ex-consultants who clearly drank way too much of their own Kool-Aid

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore comp for high performers and less HR BS

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They talk about work/life balance and diversity but wait until you meet a partner with a big ego

    Manager (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGood teamwork on engagements, You can learn some good skills, good salary

    ConsPartners own the company and run wild. I have worked with partners who break rules at will and will try and fire you for being ethical. I worked for them for 8 years and saw good employees leave constantly. In fact the turnover rate is VERY high. I worked in a division where several of my peers did not perform the minimum qualifications and were promoted. I did very well for quite a few years but eventually could not take it anymore.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Strong focus on personal responsibility, fun culture.

    Business Technology Analyst (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsFun culture in firm, good travel opportunities, expected to assume responsibilities. Buddying system helps new employees get involved in firm culture quickly. Great benefits. Good work/life balance.

    ConsDifficult to meet with buddies if travelling a lot. Timing conversations and conference calls with US-I can get difficult. Time away on travelling can wear down, especially with additional client work on Fridays

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good firm to help understand the consulting world.

    Consultant (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsContinuous learning and challenging environment. Overall development not only on your track but also networking, relationship and time management. Deloitte promotes transparency and hence senior management are mostly available to talk and help on any topic. Seniors mostly are willing to meet you and discuss your interests/concerns. You can get good mentoring. It also has decent compensation and expense benefits.

    ConsDeloitte has too many people so one needs a lot of networking to grow in the firm. Promotion is more dependent on the people you know than skillsets you have. As Deloitte promotes networking and internal firm services apart from regular client work, many times there are too many trainings and firm/networking events planned in a week and it becomes confusing and annoying to join any. Also there are too many spam emails that keeps coming everyday which people hardly read. It becomes overwhelming especially if someone is new to the firm

    Advice to Senior ManagementReducing spam emails

    Potential for high growth and promotions but does not care about its people

    SAP Consultant (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsFast paced environment, work with many professionals, potential to try many different industries and roles, great "first job" and jumping point into other opportunities, good training and certification opportunities, travel

    ConsPerformance review process is not well-received and causes high turnover, unethical leadership, focus on selling work and achieving high utilization of employees rather than developing employees,compensation has become more controversial and will continue to do so

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the junior employees choose their assignments. Many good people leave because they have no control over their own career. The performance rating process is unfair and unequal. Very frequently, people who don't deserve it get promoted and others who definitely deserve it do not, because of one bad project. Do not staff junior employees randomly. Educate them about all of the service lines and then allow them to choose. You will see a much higher retention rate.

    Smart people. Boring Projects.

    Summer Scholar (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsSmart people, travel, and great salary. Lots of cool growth opportunities and initiatives.

    ConsTRAVEL, TRAVEL, and more TRAVEL. You will travel 75-100% of the time and you have to really want that to last in the firm.
