    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1.Travel Perks
    2. Good health insurance
    3. Flexibility to leave client services and assume an internal role in the firm

    Cons

    1. Horrible work-life balance
    2. It is a place where kiss-ass people grow who can sit, walk and dine with their bosses
    3. With the huge offshore model, it is glorified Infosys, Wipro, Cognizant. The daily morning and night offshore calls beat you up. Your day never ends as you are working round the clock with the offshore team
    4. It is encouraged to kill your personal life. You will be appreciated and promoted if you are available round the clock
    5. The offshore team is extremely aggressive as they look forward to be given an opportunity to come on-site. The competition to vie for the leadership's attention gets nasty
    5. You are not treated well when you are at the bottom most level of the food chain - i.e Business Technology Analyst and Consultant. The firm is extremely hierarchical and everyone watches their own guard. The intention is to suck up in the hierarchy whereas no one really cares about people below them in the food chain.
    6. The conversations in the firm are very hierarchy-based. A person is most likely to be addressed by his position than name
    6. Very cocky colleagues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Don't just use flexibility and predictability as blanket words, implement them in every single project nationally. Lately, it was just a farce and no project leadership ever paid attention to it
    2. Work-life balance is a misleading concept in this firm. The leadership needs to meet their managed reveue targets and to honor their commitment to the client, they will go to any extent to press the team to deliver even it means no life(I mean no life at all) for the individuals in the team

    Pros

    Good name to your resume, they can easily match whatever salary requirements you requested

    Cons

    They people are the major cons. It's a politically charged environment of idiots who lie on reviews when they have to, old people who should retire already, and young people who are trying to desperately to move up the ladder. It's a terrible environment to exist and you are ranked against your peers instead of your performance. I had a career counselor who was an idiot that never paid attention to me. I had a manager who just flat out lied to clients and employees and a talent staffing lady who tried to match me to positions I had no previous experience with. It's a stupid environment to work in and anyone who is talented leaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the company, you are what's wrong with Deloitte Federal consulting

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Can't think of one, oh they hired me. Worked there 5 years.

    Cons

    Full of discriminating folks especially in HR towards folks not in HR, you have to wonder how this happens. They do hire veterans but do not count on any assistance or understanding if you have a military related disability. Just a terrible place to work, do not believe all the hype they will feed you. You will regret it if you quit your current job to go there so please learn from my mistake and stay far away from them. Wish you the best of luck.

    Pros

    -chill life if you get a useless project but wont add to your learning
    - people say its good if you want to have an MBA . But i personally think wasting your time doing all crappy work is not justified , though the outerworld has a very great immpression about deloitte but trust me you will know the actuality from day1 .

    Cons

    - Not so many joinees from top engineering colleges
    - If u get stuck in bad project they are going to make you work like hell
    - Most of the experience guys have no technical knowledge in short incompetent seniors
    - No learning
    - You will like the pay if u get a project where you dont have to work much but you will regret if you happen to work for a project which makes u work for 10 or more than 10 hours+ weekends as well
    - For a purely technical guy this company is a strict no no
    - Low salary hikes
    - Very less projects that company have
    - unrealistic project deadlines

    Just have a lot to say about deloitte , hope you understand what I meant
