Don't expect to have a personal life

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Deloitte

Pros

Expect high compensation and an excellent benefits package
Opportunity for travel to great places (some of mine included Hawaii, NY, So Cal), but also included awful, depressing places in the middle of nowhere (Kansas, the Dakotas)

Cons

See above in terms of travel: you have very little say in where you end up, and sometimes you're there for 12+ months at a time
EXTREMEMLY political, and difficult to get highly rated or a promotion unless you're chummy with sr. management and partners
Do not expect to have a social life if you're single, unless you're interested in hooking up with colleagues on the road (which I was NOT)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote on merit, not on personal relationships

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
