Pros

Supported remote work locations and very good work model.

Advice to Management

Allow people to live outside the 90 mile radius from where practice is located. IBM, Accenture, BP all allow.

    Pros

    Deloitte offers a very flexible work environment, constant change/challenges, and an opportunity to work with some very intelligent colleagues, both at Deloitte and at its clients.

    Cons

    The workplace can have an 'up or out' mentality which ultimately leads to taking on job responsibilities not necessarily desired (i.e. sales).

    Advice to Management

    Management should focus on developing career paths for those individuals that want to maintain a career at Deloitte however do not want to pursue partnership.

    Pros

    - Team culture in most projects
    - Smart people and most of them are friendly
    - Huge knowledge repository - ability to gain a lot of skills

    Cons

    - Some managers/ supervisors make your head spin. Its difficult to understand how they are doing well even though they treat people badly and unfairly
    - They talk about open exchange of information but they wont discuss things that are most important to people such as lay off timing, numbers and specific criteria etc. Great to be there in good years, may not be so good when times are tough
    - Crazy work hours at times. I guess thats one thing thats common in all Big 4.

    Advice to Management

    - Treat people with respect - even those who may have a bad year after several good years
    - Make efforts to integrate people - in my experience 50% of people who join as Sr Managers leave in the first 12-18 months. Why hire Sr Managers when there is no support structure to help them be successful?
    - Avoid lay-offs - maybe start with making the hiring process more flexible. Makes the work environment extremely negative when people are being laid off.
