    Current Employee - QRM in San Francisco, CA

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

    Pros

    Coworkers; volunteer events (Impact Day); firm values; firm's investment into their employees

    Cons

    salary, office poitics

    Many people take credit for work other people really did in order to advance in the company or to protect themselves from lay-offs.

    It doesn't matter if you 're a great employee or a poor employee. All that matters is that your manager thinks you're working (even if you spend 30 hours a week on Farmville). It's more important to spend 40 hours being friends with your manager than it is actually doing your job, especially if your manager is a PPD (Principal, Partner, Director)..

    Deloitte will not hesitate to fire you OVER THE PHONE despite a satisfactory performance review. Deloitte is trigger happy with the at-will employment option. Deloitte will shut down your account so you don't even have a chance to look for other opportunities with the firm or say good bye to friends.

    Deloitte does not want women in their 30s who may have babies. Even upon their return, many women are terminated after a year or not given any assignments so that they can be up for termination due to "performance issues" (e.g., you're utilization sucks even though it's because the person assigning you work is too busy travelling around the US to suck up to PPDs).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that people claiming credit for their work actually worked on it rather than just "project managing" (e.g., watching the progress of work product by others and being the first to claim credit or throw people under the bus).

    Make sure employees who do their job remain with the firm and employees who abuse the telecommuting are investigated and ferretted out.

    Former Employee - Consulting Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Consulting Manager in San Francisco, CA

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

    Pros

    Lots of training class offered for junior employees, very social environment. It's a great place for fresh graduates but not for experienced hires.

    Cons

    It's all about connections and who you know in the firm. How much have you contributed to the client success and the firm's bottom line is secondary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop politics.

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

    Pros

    Company culture - promotes working from home, and even allows this during busy season; Love my co-workers

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season; Evaluation system doesn't really allow differentiation between employees, so people are less motivation to work hard; Don't think we are compensated enough for all the hours we put in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the evaluation and goal hour system so that people who are efficient and work hard will be compensated, or else they will just leave

    Pros

    Compensation, Travel opportunities, Invest a lot in their people through training opportunities. Most of the people here are very bright and many have the "work hard; play hard" mentality.

    Cons

    Work life balance is almost non-existent due to the long hours and travel. The culture is focused on doing whatever it takes to get the job done and depending on the phase that could mean working 65+ hour weeks for a couple of months.
