    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

    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.

    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 worked at Deloitte full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to work for clients from different industries which is helpful once you decide to leave the company. Most of workers are from different parts of world (although mostly from politically unstable and poor countries) which is nice if you are able to appreciate learning about different cultures and views.

    Cons

    This was by far the worst employer I ever had. The culture of bullying has a top-down design and you will be bullied until you learn how to bully downwards. Performance reviews are basically a blame game where the most important thing to learn, if you are to survive them, is how to blame someone else when project goes wrong. And projects go wrong all the time due to incompetent management and chase for market-share. Integrity is priority zero - top level management, from directors to partners, certified public accountants, certified internal/external auditors, certified forensic auditors will go as low as to lie under oath. Total deterioration of moral values. It will make you disgusted by the whole profession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you happened to work in this company, you should leave as soon as you possibly can. There is nothing you can do as 'manager' - this company is rotten top-down.

    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.

    Pros

    Deloitte has a genuine direction, and is improving every day. The real top dogs are very serious about making it a seriously good place to work.

    Cons

    Deloitte is desperately trying to move away from its reputation as the “sick puppy” of the big four, however there are still too many residual managers from its darker days, and the hangover from a once toxic culture remains. Many of the senior managers are more concerned with bullying staff then getting the job done, and are very reluctant to support more junior staff, and even reluctant to get the job done for the clients. The firm is still very hierarchical and any manager who has been there since the “sick puppy” days will expect to be treated like a king. Although the top management has a clear and well thought out strategy, in Deloitte’s own words, culture beats strategy. Unless the “old” culture of hierarchy, stifling of free thinking, and workplace bullying is extinguished, the strategy will never come to fruition.
