I worked at Deloitte full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Benefits, charitable work, flexible work arrangements, great co-workers

Cons

IT management are clueless and omnipotent, raises are non-existent, evaluation ratings done by quota, work/life balance is preached but not practiced, work outsourced to other countries and off-shored when there are so many unemployed here. Read the reviews from India folks, they are pretty dissatisfied also. I wondered, every day, if it was my turn to take the blame when a project would go bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make some serious changes. Your IT Director ISN"T Steve Jobs (but likes to think he is). People are unhappy. Project timelines are unrealistic. Agile methodology works when done correctly. Your organization is too top heavy since letting all the worker-bees go and keeping the ineffective managers.

    I worked at Deloitte

    Pros

    Good branding, international corporate, can leverage on the US, UK and AUS practice. Opportunity to travel.

    Cons

    Deloitte is a partnership - to succeed, each person is expected to run him/herself like a brand. Each partner and his/her team is like a franchise. Your experience with Deloitte is hugely dependent on your leadership.

    Lateral hires can more easily get higher position than people who started as grads. Unfortunately there are often many problems with lateral hires, and they are difficult to get rid of. This undermines the existing people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring incompetent lateral hires into leadership positions.
