    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    1. Reputation: Looks good on your resume

    2. People: Generally capable and nice to work with

    3. Experience: Exposure to a wide range of projects

    4. Flexibility: To a certain extent, more so for managers and above, you can create your own brand image and do what you are passionate about, as long as you are making $$$ for the firm

    Cons

    1. Compensation: At or below industry average, bonus is a joke

    2. Career Advancement: It’s extremely difficult to get prompted to partner. There is a huge backlog of Sr. Managers in most practice areas.

    3. Favoritism: If you have a powerful partner as your sponsor and are part of his network, then you will be given the right projects and are more likely to get promoted.

    4. Work Life Balance: The bottom line is that you are committed to 100% travel and you will get staffed where you can make $$$ for the firm. When you are on a project, you are expected to bill at least 45 hours/week, excluding any administrative tasks and forced firm activities.

    Former Employee - Consultant

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Great reputation, strong resume buidler. A few years in consulting really are equivalent to dog years. I was an MBA level consultant, pay was in the high 60's due to my not being from a target MBA school.

    Cons

    Working in Strategy consulting - road warrior lifestyle, no work life balance. Southern Deloitte offices tend to be very cliquish, its really important to be from a target school, partners and managers look out primarily for school alumni and people within their personal network - the entire environment is also extremely political

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on actually developing managerial abilities of managers - too many people who are technically competent but without leadership ability. Up or out culture is promoting too much backstabbing and sabotage within firm.

    Pros

    Good for young employees as we travel a lot. Job is in a prestigious industry and the Deloitte name carries good recognition.

    Cons

    Constant travel, being away from home is often difficult, especially if you have a family. There are often long hours, and we have a minimum number of hours that we are expected to bill for each week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the mid-year and year-end review processes more open and less subjective. If you are going to lay people off, tell us why it's happening and actually own up to your mistakes in hiring people for whom you cannot sell work. If we are going to take the fall for your mistakes, at least be honest with us.

    Pros

    Deloitte is a big multinational organization that has a huge brand name and very intelligent people. Deloitte respects worklife balance and emphasizes on training a lot even in times of economic difficulty

    Cons

    The salary at Deloitte is slightly less than its peers but if you look at the total compensation and benefits, it is at par

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They feedback and rating process at Deloitte can use some improvement. Currently its more of a popularity contest and does not truly reward people who are excellent at their job

    Former Employee - Consultant in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    You get to travel everywhere and work with different clients. Also you get to see so many different industries and clients. You will soon see that after a couple of years you are more advanced in your general business knolodge than anyone else. Also most of the people you start with become your good friends.

    Cons

    The travel can sometimes get to a bit long. Also it sounds very 3rd grade but its hard to make friends with people in the city you live in when you are only in town the weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the people and feedback.
