    Important to become valuable to the partner on a client engagement

    Former Employee - Director in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Director in Washington, DC

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good news: While excellent performance is always helpful, the way to get ahead at Deloitte is to become valuable to the partner and client.
    If you get on the right project team, it can be a lot of fun and very rewarding.

    Cons

    Bad news: If you become too valuable in a specific role, you can find your advancement blocked by a partner or manager who doesn't want to lose you, so research how potential managers and partners treat their staff people before you commit to a project.
    Choose your starting place (function or practice) carefully, because it is very difficult to transfer internally between practices (Consulting to/from Audit/Risk) or major functions (Commercial to/from Federal)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop reorganizing the firm and do a better job of vetting the very senior partners.

    Pros

    Very challenging work environment. Smart colleagues and ample opportunity everywhere. What you put into it is what you can make out of it.

    Hours can be a drag sometimes depending on the assignment and client you work with. Many do play favorites, just have to learn how to play the game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give professionals more leeway to purse natural interest and passion.

    Current Employee - Audit Senior in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This will depend on your department, but mine (audit) was full of nice, smart people. There are always exceptions but all my bosses were extremely nice and understanding.
    Frequent social events- happy hours almost every other week
    Possible to gain exposure to lots of different industries- just need to network internally

    Cons

    Works their employees hard. Avg 11 hour/week busy seasons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hire more so the existing employees are not burned out. Most leave after 2-3 years because of the workload.
