There have been no surprises and the experience has exceeding my expectations.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Deloitte LLP

ProsThe Deloitte culture is fun and the people are great to work with. We work on significant client issues so the work we do has great impact.

ConsThere is a lot of travel, as there is with any major consulting firm. There is a great deal of significance placed on internal firm activities in addition to the demands of client work.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce the bureaucracy as much as possible. Train managers to focus on efficiency as teams spend too much time in redundant efforts for little added value.

Audit Intern (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsThe company is very committed to its employees. Interns are treated just like full-time staff and given plenty of opportunities.

ConsDeloitte is a big company and as an intern you are competing against 20-plus other qualified candidates for a full time position.

Work hard, earn hard, play :(

Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Deloitte LLP

ProsMethodologies: Methodologies specific to technologies and domains.
Organized and professional: Good hiring process and initial seminars to introduce to the firm. DNet (internal website) has lot of information that helps regarding processes and procedures and a job aid.
Good Salary: This is my second of the big consulting companies and Deloitte pays well in comparison to its competitors.
Own your career: Not much of intervention from anyone till your evals.
Ingrainded functional vertical streams lead to specialized career.

ConsWork-life balance. Have heard work hours between 50-65 per week
Ingrainded functional vertical streams may pose issues for some.
Tough for some experienced hires Managers to find their initial projects.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a need to establish programs or processes that can help augment new hires in the firm beyond the buddy system and the CC as they may not be very effective.

A tough hill to climb before building a network, but once at the top, smooth sailing

Management Consulting Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Deloitte LLP

Pros- You work with the best;
- Privately held means profit sharing for all;
- Strongh emphasis on networking results in "small company" family-style relationships with upper management.

Cons- Expected extra-curricular activities are burdening on your personal time.
- MCC profile seems to play little effect as to expected commitment.
- Strange multi-tiered performance review system with little clarity, seemingly relying on strength of network / relationships more so than on merit.

Advice to Senior Management- 360 Reviews shoudl be mandatory for all projects and relationships at Deloitte. Many times, new Managers are hired into the firm that are not apt for the role, making it difficult for those subordinate to them as these managers adjust.
- Also, the performance review system needs a serious overhaul. Adding additional forms isn't an overhaul, but just more "red tape."

A lot of high-priced talent. ...but watch out for the fluff.

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Deloitte LLP

ProsSalaries for consultants & sr. consultants exceeds other comparable companies and position. There is a very clear career path that is outlined. Pretty good internal knowledge transfer and content repository. Positive work environment and generally good local office support and involvement.

ConsIn many cases, clearly inexperienced PMs or workstream leads work you like slaves. 7:00am conference calls on a Sunday morning is a bit ridiculous. There is wayyyyy too much emphasis on local office extracurricular activities. Learn how to sign business. ...way too quick to lay off. Do as you say and not as you do--i.e., your ethics policies...don't mislead your prospective clients on the qualifications of your project resources, or ask your staff to do the same. Watch for 'cliqueness' and pitfalls in this highly 'bubba'-oriented networking environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive equal credibility to your qualified industry hires, rather than relying on engagement leadership coming solely from those directly out of school & grown from within. Allow for 360 feedback. Show less emphasis on storyboards and more on delivering concrete deliverables to the client. Look for other skills and alternative ways to use your consulting talent on hte bench, rather than limiting them to one service line and domain, and thereby decreasing their value (and ultimately utilization), to the firm.
