    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Good brand name on CV. Good for starting your career after uni.

    Cons

    Worse consulting firm for lateral hires. Never ever start your career with this one if you are a lateral hire. Go somewhere else!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stepping on peoples throats. It is not talking you anywhere.

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, 5 weeks time off, good health insurance. The support staff salaries are generous.

    Cons

    STINGY with raises. The whole time i was there, no christmas bonus or party for us regular folks, but upper management didnt let that stop them. There is very little room to move or grow unless you have a benefactor who is willing to make things happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow employees to drink at lunch and come back sloshed

    Current Employee - Business Technology Analyst in Hyderābād (India)

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the peers are good to work with .
    Compensation is good compared to other similar firms.
    Good office environment .
    Travel facility is good .

    Cons

    Projects are of pathetic quality .
    There are no quality projects in this firms.
    I would never recommend this firm for laterals as this company would definitely kill your career.
    If you are an experienced integration resource /SOA consultant /WPS/TIBCO/WMB resource ,Please do not join this company and ruin your technical skills.
    Most projects in systems integration /SOA are of very very pathetic quality where you will be doing excel sheet/log check and call center kind of job most of the time .
    I would never recommend this company for a techie who aspire to become an architect /Sr architect .
    With out firm hours and networking ,its hard to get promotion here .
    You will find some folks who does not do any work or does not have basic technical knowledge getting promoted due to regional politics and buttering .
    Most of the senior folks here lack basic knowledge about technical aspects .
    There is no center of excellence set up here for any kind of technology and because of which they are finding it hard to win new projects .
    Even though you may be a talented integration /soa /java consultant , you may be deployed to a .net /testing project ,due to lack of projects in the company, which would eventually kill or end your technical career .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do promote deserving resources rather than promoting people who does not know the basics aspects of technology consulting.
    Try to reduce the emphasis on firm initiatives and unnecessary training programs.
    Please do not kill careers .

    Pros

    Well known brand, office is good with many exceptions. Time - off policy is really good.

    Cons

    This company has emphasize in show-off and no real technical strength. Of-course exceptions are every where.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start focusing on technical resources and their work-life balance, reward policies, to much show-off and loosing focus on technical side and technical resources may not be fruitful to company

    I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    --Learn a lot

    --If you search hard, you find some truly outstanding people ( too bad they leave ASAP)

    Cons

    --Hours are inhuman; not just a whiny complaint, busy season is regularly 80-100 hours with a lot of people staying til 4 am; it's a weird competition to see who can stay the longest with bitter senior managers saying they stayed for x amount of hours when they were consultants ( yah you walked uphill in the snow, I get it)

    --some partners and senior managers are totally unprofessional in their interactions

    --low pay

    --there is no work/life balance regardless of what the kool aid says

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice because this is how things have been running for so long they will never change

    Pros

    Nothing special, I get lots of holidays so I can be as lazy as I want

    Cons

    We do not answer to people. We don't care, there will always be people applying. We are unprofessional. If we do not hire you, it is because we just do not have the time to hire you and will choose the first one that comes

    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Having Deloitte on your resume opens many doors for other opportunities.

    Cons

    During busy season, there is no such thing as work-life-balance. Unless someone takes a personal interest in you (which is rare) it is hard to learn and grow. Too often you're told "see what was done last year" without any further guidance or explanation. Robots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look around at those leaving - an entire team, from Auditor to Manager under the same Senior Manager quit. There is no appreciation of current employees.

    I worked at Deloitte as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved the idea of working from home. Particularly when the nearest office is a 90 minute commute. Pay is great.

    Cons

    No amount of money can makeup for lack of respect to the individual, miscommunications, backstabbing environment that completely lacks ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm shocked to see 68% of your employees recommend you. In November your rating was in the tank and the reviews were more aligned with truth. I would recommend that you find out how your managers treat the people that report into them. If you can do it anonymously all the better so that there is no retaliation. Because if you don't I can guarantee there will be retaliation. They are all about covering themselves when there are errors. They do not take responsiblity for their own mistakes. Particularly in Development and Training - a branch of your Talent & Development. They pulled off getting a great deal of work from me, took the credit for it, and then let me go for an error they committed and that they pinned on me.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst - Strategy and Operations in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Speaking based on experience in the Singapore office only - depending on the team you're working with they can be friendly and close-knit. Good brand name on the surface. Generally more down-to-earth and collegial than in banking. You make close friends with some colleagues.

    Cons

    Speaking based on experience in the Singapore office only - Work-life balance is non-existent, and the low pay does not help at all. Junior employees are treated merely as resources with little investment in training them up. Measly and laughable employee benefits, welfare and pathetic investment in office equipment. No respect for them and little appreciation for their contributions to projects. Demoralised office environment where people quit very frequently. Needless to say, burn out comes quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in improving employee satisfaction. Have a genuine concern for gathering employee feedback rather than using it as a means to root out the 'dissidents' and prevent them from being promoted.

    Pros

    Literally nothing. Except for Benefits which are good.

    Cons

    1] Outdated technology development. they have some old frameworks which you need to learn and reuse. No scope of learning new technologies.
    2] Slogging late hours. Senior management will suck your brains. Be prepared to work late hours.
    3] Literally no work life balance(Or No life only work) as a Center associate.
    4] Salary is Ok., but not great.
