Pros

Healthcare, Dental, 401K, location know the right people and get moved up.

Cons

No incentives, no bonuses, not flexible, management tends to remind you very often about what you can do to make the firm better, yet look the other way when you bend over backwards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, their ideas can help create a better work environment.

    Pros

    Focus on building variety of soft skills such as presentation/public speaking, client relations, time management, resource management, and writing documentation.
    The proposal process is very impressive and clearly shows how Deloitte wins as much work as it does.
    Overall friendly environment with approachable partners and managers.
    Variety of opportunities available outside of client work.
    Great stepping stone to either business school or a fantastic industry job.

    Cons

    Overall Deloitte employees are there to do a job. They do it very well because of the sheer number of hours and people that are put to each problem. However, there is little passion in the job or work itself. The growing technology company culture with enthusiastic individuals excited about their work and their effect on the world has not reached Deloitte. The culture doesn't look to be changing anytime soon either considering how traditional the majority of partners think. Maybe the new school of partners will enable even the most basic of advanced development (agile perhaps?) and understand that happy, passionate workers create quality products in the same or less time.

    The technology consulting division is diverse and every experience in every industry is different however switching between industries is rare and difficult for all levels. Technology consulting projects are naturally longer, especially in Deloitte where often the projects are end to end (requirements through implementation and maintenance). Not a place to go to if you want varied experiences.

    Also the technologies used in the majority of projects are old and outdated. Dont expect to work with very innovative products. The "emerging solutions" and "deloitte digital" groups are the two that work in newer technologies. However they are not only the smallest divisions, they also have the few projects per employee and lowest pay rate. In comparison to SAP, Oracle, and Systems Integration, these innovative groups barely touch 1/10 in size.

    In the end this is not a place for those that enjoy technology or creative solutions. It is an effective machine built to reuse proven techniques and teach newcomers how to implement these techniques.

    The culture, while enjoyable at times, is also very work/party focused and heavily male dominated. Much of the networking completed will be done at the bar. Great for the drinkers, not so great for those who decline to take a shot.

    Finally, the lack of bonuses or overtime for the first three years is no longer competitive in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deloitte Technology Consulting has managed to develop a fantastic reputation over the past decade. This has resulted in hiring from an elite group of universities at all levels. Many of those students come with specialized degrees. These students should be matched to industries or projects that utilize these skills.

    After hiring there is zero effort taken to match new hires to their interests. Often this results in a serious lack of passion the employee has for their job. while the excuse given is often along the lines of "you are here to try new things..." it can easily be refuted by the fact that every project offers its team members a variety of skill building opportunities beyond their main role.

    With such a high caliber of employees entering, and the turnover rate rising of "principle school" candidates. something has to be done to retain top talent.
