Pros

Deloitte provides unique opportunities to work as part of a truely innovative consulting firm that is first to market with many of the solutions it offers to clients. Deloitte provides practitioners of all levels opportunities to drive their career and ontribute as a leader in a multitude of capacities in either internal or external projects. Deloitte's focus on professional development provides great opportunities to make yourself more marketable either within the consulting sector or within many industries, on their dime.

Cons

Deloitte's work life "balance" is a joke. It is almost impossible to meet your required utilization rate (accounting for holidays & PTO) without consistently working 50 hours a week at the client site, and then contributing to a multitude of "firm contributions" and business development on top of that. Deloitte's heavily bureuacratic nature turns you into just another number come review time, so don't rely on the ability of any local leadership to support you when it comes to that promotion, bonus, or raise that you have been working for. Although the salary and bonus look pretty sweet on the surface, once you realize all of the additional work that is involved outside of your normal client delivery, you'd be better off with a smaller consulting firm, unless you are just starting out your career.

Advice to Management

With the state of the current job market, it is not longer reasonable for Deloitte's retainment model to be "you should feel priviledged to work at Deloitte". Work on your work life "fit" (there is no way there will ever be a balance at Deloitte), examine your extensive and bureaucratic annual review process, and look to exceed your competitors (instead of just trying to keep pace with them) when it comes to compensation, if you can't fix anything else.

    Pros

    A lot of companies say that you can be entrepreneurial but here you actually can be. The company offers a lot of different types of opportunities for those willing to invest in carving out a path. If you're smart, have a good work ethic and produce work from whatever it is that drives you, you'll have a future for as long as you want one.

    The client roster is about as varied as you can get spanning every vertical. The ability to express interest and get onto a client is an aspect that isn't to be overlooked. Many companies you can find yourself in a 'fixed' position where it's difficult to traverse from client to client but here you can.

    Aside from your day to day client work, the benefits are as generous as the offer packages. You can expect very good selections from your usual suspects: health and life insurance, retirement, etc but the additional secondary benefits like legal services, a cell phone, corporate card etc are not to be ignored.

    Cons

    I would put it like this: You find a great band. They're young, hungry, great energy, they have an edge and they don't give a ****. Then all of a sudden, they start getting popular. The music they write and play is really hitting people and they start to get a big following. Then comes the huge record deal. They now have the stage they've wanted since they started and they start to make it big. The first wave of fans start murmuring about selling out and how they've changed. Red Hot Chili Peppers anyone?

    Depending on who you are and how you see things will determine whether it's a pro or a con to work here. Did the band sellout or did they just do what they set out to do? Either answer is absolutely fine, neither is wrong, but philosophically one of them is if you want to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Ubermind was great. Its legacy persists but in the wrong way: Email accounts, sites, email signatures and the signage on the actual building live on. This sends a mixed message.

  2. Great Culture! Great people! Good place to work

    Pros

    People at Deloitte are extremely helpful and professional. They gave great trainings, provide very professional services to clients, and let me learned a lot about accounting industry.

    Cons

    I love the firm. I would say I had a really good experience working here. People are really friendly and the working hours are good and flexible. I don't have any cons to provide.
