Right this way to be grossly underpaid and unappreciated!

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

Pros

The Deloitte brand is recognized pretty much worldwide. Therefore many people (like me) will at some point consider heading off to work for a major firm with global reach. This global reach means the company can negotiate good benefits, occasional discounts, and other perks.

Cons

No perk in the world is worth being treated like sh#t. Which is - barring your entry into the hallowed halls of profit-sharing partners - precisely what you can expect. You'll need a stiff spine (to handle all the people stepping on your neck to "get ahead" and make an impression with said partners); a zipped lip (to avoid making inadvertent noises of disgust when HR makes its legally-required statements regarding "equity"); additionally, impaired vision may assist you in ignoring the fact that all power brokers in the firm are men (fun fact: 90% of the women partners are 5'11 or taller). Most people go in knowing they will work like dogs, and hope to get either paid graduate education or at least a resume "gold star" by getting in and out alive. If you have any work experience at all to speak of before signing over your soul to this one of the Big Four...make certain that you demand WAY more money than you think you're worth going in, as they will offer you WAY less...then make concerted efforts to convince you that you barely deserve that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A company that hemorrhages women and minorities year over year is not a good look. This is unmitigated by spotlighting Harvard MBAs from India and calling that your "diversity." The company has an image that is one of old, conservative, staid and often unwelcoming men. This is neither the way the most successful business sectors look, nor the way you should want to. Since much of the company makes its $$ by going into other firms and telling them what to do, perhaps there should be some progress in changing Deloitte's ugly, outdated corporate MO, instead of happy-talk HR shills who look the other way and make excuses as once-eager employees fly in and out the door.

    Current Employee - Management Consulting Manager in Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Management Consulting Manager in Atlanta, GA

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

    Pros

    Salary scale, Growth, Opportunities for new experiences - however this is dependent upon your ability to network, Prestige in the marketplace

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance, There tends to be a bit too much micro-managing, The expectation is on you to contribute too much outside of client service to the firm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for flexible work arrangement more often. This would alleviate a lot of the work/life balance complaints and provide motivation to practitioners to want to contribute to firm activities knowing they're here for the long haul. Many can't see themselves long term at Deloitte due to the inflexibility in the travel schedule

    Former Employee - Consulting Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The talent level is high.

    Cons

    During mid- and end-of year reviews, the client voice was not heard, only the manager onsite who provided the rating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out some of the Sr. Managers - they are more concerned w/becoming PPD's than doing good work.
